Product Review: HTC Hero

A true hero among the smartphones?

Product Review: HTC Hero
Battery: As mentioned in my other reports on the HTC Hero, “the hero” ranks in the line of smartphones, which do not exceed a whole day without having to go to the charger. This is currently the state of the things and all lamenting is no use. If we want to use UMTS in its diversity, we have just to pay the price for it. Without UMTS and only in the GSM network, the Hero is a much better and more satisfying consumer. The 1350 mAh strong battery can then exceed a working day well. Why would you want to do without the smartphone features?
It is better to always have a charger, the next outlet is normally not so far away, whether in the ICE, at the airport, in the car or in the office. With activated GPS, Wi-Fi and UMTS usage, you can watch the battery indicator as you dwindle. If only GPS is used, the waste is not quite as dramatic, I am thus just as far as with UMTS without GPS. After all, we are now far away from the blissful times of the T-Mobile G1, since the morning e-mail check already has a considerable part of the Akkukapazität. If the battery is empty, the LED on the front will flash red and alert you to the malfunction.

Product Review HTC Hero 1

Camera
5.0 Megapixel, which sounds of course first great. HTC-typical are 5 megapixels rather compared with 3 megapixels. Even if the autofokus really does not do a bad job, the pictures are badly exposed, there is a lack of correct color and sharpness. You may not expect too much, but for camera pictures the results are okay. The operation of the camera is rather badly implemented than right, I find it troublesome to always use the touch screen to call the camera app and then take a photo. A separate camera button would be a great profit. Using the GPS receiver you can geotaggen the photos, a nice feature that I would like for all cameras. So you never have to guess where the photo was actually taken. Also a video function has the Hero, but the resolution of 352×287 pixels I do not have to go further.Since I expect me 2009 more.

Android OS
Here I refer to the already existing article on Android OS 1.5 Cupcake.

Product Review HTC Hero 2

Sense
Ganz does not resemble the familiar Android standard, HTC has cooked its own soup. HTC has always been a pioneer in this respect, so the HTC Windows smartphone has already been relatively early with a TouchFlo interface, which in the current generation does not show much of Windows 6.1 Mobile. At least the main functions for most users are no longer under the obsolete surface, but a nice, finger-friendly, newer surface. This concept has transferred HTC to the Hero and calls the surface here Sense. I must say, HTC has done with much Eyecandy neat effort to make the main functions more chic. Twitter, Facebook and Flickr are integrated and many new HTC widgets have been introduced. I can only say: it works. An Android has never been so easy to use and understand. That under the surface still the conventional Android comes to the fore, is not bad, the surface is really made really chic.Initially, the commands of my Android were not implemented so quickly and quickly, but after a reset, everything went wonderfully.

Conclusion
HTC Hero is nothing really new in principle. The hardware has been slightly improved, which affects the haptics, the user interface and also the 3.5 mm headphone jack. Otherwise much has remained the same. The working speed is good, I am quite satisfied. Would I switch from Magic to a Hero? Actually not, because I’m not sure if for the HTC Hero an upgrade to the upcoming upcoming Android 2.0 software platform is possible or whether HTC would leave me in the case of bug fixes and ROM updates again in the rain. All in all, the Hero is a worthy opponent of the iPhone OS. Within a year, Android has boosted itself from a smirked Betastatus to a top place. Also the iPhone OS of the first generation was, besides the iPhone hardware per se, with errors. It took some time until Apple had the iPhone up to date. This development I see in any case also with Android OS and with the hardware, which can come from diverse partners.

Product Review HTC Hero 3

Update
An error occurred promptly at the end of the HTC Hero’s test. Hero could no longer build a data connection. A reset did not help, I had to send it back to Cyberport as a defect.

Editor’s note: The defective device has now arrived with us. We will continue to follow up, which was the reason for the malfunction and to report soon.
