How about Hero's sound quality? The frequency responce graph in the review looks really disappointingly poor.. Even though the lows are not cut by some low-pass filter (Magic and G1 case), but it's so choppy and highs are..well, pathetic.
Maybe somebody could test that out again, with newer firmware or something? Because really, that's just a deal breaker for me and I'll have to go with the Diamond2..I adore Android so much for it's UI philosophy, but sound quality is too important for me. I won't mind that gorgeous pixel density of the Diamond2...
Thanks for any replies regarding this nasty issue, I'll b checkinh back now and then.
Anonymous, 24 Sep 2009Are you saying you can't find any good apps in the android market? there are loads of apps, i'll download 30 and keep 12 and those 12 i'll end up uninstalling it within a week. they try to copy iphone apps and end up messing it up.
example. theres a sega megadrive emulator which is a lite version and dont work properly and they have a full version you have to buy which is the same as the lite version. on the hero that app will not work with the touch screen.
i like this phone, i have it now for 3 weeks but at the same time im not too happy about it. the apps on it aint that great.
think soon as the nokia n900 comes out and the blackberry storm 2 i might sell this phone and get on of the other two.
The Game, 23 Sep 2009HTC Hero is a great phone.
But there are some serious disadvantages for a phone of it's class... moreIIt's not a multimedia phone.... its ranks average in that regard.
Bluetooth file transfer should be available in time. For now, I use ftp and/or samba file share.
Hi peeps, does anyone know if you root your phone would it affect the warranty or phone insurance. I think going to do this but want to be sure.... by the way I've had this phone 6 weeks and its superb!

Like: No Flash with a 5 Mega Pixel camera.
Video recording that even a 100 Euro phone can do.
65K colour is so last decade.
No FM Radio (why is it a multimedia phone then).
No TV out.
Very Small built in memory.
Bluetooth without file sharing; what a joke.
HERO, 19 Sep 2009is BLUETOOTH unlock or works only with handsets???Works only with handset.
How can I get the Rom update? How do you do it? I read somewhere that the phone notifies you when available and does it automatically over the air for you. Is this true? Please help
Also how do I get ahome or open home?
Hero Owner, 17 Sep 2009As for my opinion, been using this phone for a couple of weeks now and I am very happy with it... morehi you are finding this phone very freindly ,ive recently purchased but unable to read all my excel file and how to delete the data which i do not want and how to cut paste the old files and folders.
