HTC Hero

Gadget Of The Week: 31st July 2009

htc heroWhat: Billed as the iPhone killer.
Availablility: Available on Orange

We Like
Good construction
Great 5MP camera, plus records video
Works with Flash, which the iPhone doesn’t
Pinch and stretch technology as used on iPhone

We Don't Like
Banana-shaped, which could be prone to snapping if people put them in their back pockets.
Poor menu system

Rating: 7/10
A decent phone, but a touch slow. Not the iPhone killer it wants to be.
