It plays mp4 files smooth.. I don't know if Eclair could do divX or not but Hero is a class of it's own for touchscreen device.
I guess people should give it a try before they decided to buy iphone really..! (:
Does anyone know if the new Android 2.0 Eclair update will enable DivX playback and address the poor MP4 & FLV playback described in the GSM Arena's review of 06/08/09? Or is there an app which now enables DivX playback on the Hero?
I was holding out for the N900 but, despite it's dodgy camera and lack of Xenon or even LED flash, I was still quite impressed with the HTC Hero. If it supports decent video playback I might finally be persuaded to part with my much-loved N82...!
The phone itself is pretty awesome and it does everything I need it to do. I was contemplating the Hero and the iPhone and I am very pleased with it. The phone does drop a lot of calls and the battery is incredibly weak. It went from 100% full to 50% in about 4 hours and I used it for texting during this time and played about 30 mins of Pandora. Not sure where they get the 7 to 8 hr talk time spec. I would give it no more than 2 before the battery is ready to die. I hope they will address this with the next android. But overall great phone!

Need some help/advice. I just recently got the HTC Hero, but I went in the store looking to get the Blackberry Bold. Got talked in to this one, think the phone is very neat, but I'm not liking the touch screen, I can't type great on it. I have 14 days to change my mind. Do I take this phone back or do I keep it??
is it true that:
1. battery is weak?
2. network reception is weak and often drop ?
love this phone and going to buy, but have the above concern.
hasnt this phone got a flash, i tried the camera and cant seem to find if it has a flash on it, im guessing not?
i have T-mobile G2 Touch = Hero i am using it for last 3 weeks now and i must say it is a powerful phone and ANROID is great to use in the shape of G2 Touch or Hero
Android is better than Windown and/or OS? I am waiting for Philips V900 Android. But I like HTC in design.
Is it possible to do an update with the review with the ROM update? I heard that the device became really fast with the update.

There's an app named discovery on the market that basically turn your hero to a ftp server, which allow you download and upload files to your phonr. This mean you no longer had to rely on Bluetooth or cable to connect to your phone. The transfer speed is even faster than Bluetooth.
