Product Review: HTC Hero

A true hero among the smartphones?

To HTC Hero I have already written a lot and said a lot-so we come directly to the review.Design & workmanship: The dimensions of our hero are 112x56x14 mm. It almost feels like a magic from then , but then somehow different. The Magic had the dimensions 113 x 55 x 14 mm, but was somehow more rounded, curved in the hand, not quite as square as the Hero. The Hero, on the other hand, fits somehow better into the time, perhaps because I have a HTC Touch Diamond 2 , which is also somewhat more angular. The Magic and the Hero is missing the hardware keyboard, which I regretted at Magic at that time something more than today at the Hero. Since my claim has probably changed. Hero or Diamond 2 are just surfing smartphones (yes, the iPhone can probably get a corner better) and no email smartphones like the Blackberrys. Well, if you have everything: -]. The keyboard of the hero is only a virtual keyboard on the touchscreen, but this is outstanding for touchscreen conditions – more certainly later. The white housing (matt!) Is comfortable in the hand, it makes a very good impression both haptically and optically and does not look cheap at any point. If the Hero is next to the Magic, the Magic drops slightly, has less robust and reliable, although that is not really the case. Thanks to the special coating the Hero is well in the hand. Not that a smartphone falls from my hand, but a bit more grip already makes for a better feeling. Also it is so easier to keep clean, grease and grease fingers have no chance or can be wiped away quickly and easily.

Product Review HTC Hero 1

Thanks to the continuous battery cover, the smartphone looks as if from a single cast, it does not creak, wiggle and press anything. Unfortunately, the Hero has gained a little weight, now 135 grams are just 20 grams more than before, with nearly identical technical data. But the few Mehrgramm I like to drag around with me, knowing that the Hero is well-processed. The display with a diagonal of 3.2 inches and a resolution of 320 x 240 pixels (still ok, but in half a year certainly no more exhilarating), as the case is also specially coated. It is enough to wipe the automatically greasy display once or twice with a piece of fabric or a microfiber cloth and it is again free of streaks. With Magic or with other smartphones you have to try the cloth a few times more. Unfortunately, the display does not prevent grease accumulation, but easier cleaning is a first step. By the way, this anti-fat feature also has the new iPhone 3GS.

Product Review HTC Hero 2

The remaining features on the hero’s case are quickly explained. The 5.0 megapixel camera sits on the back of the smartphone’s upper end and has no other cover, but the camera is embedded recessed and can usually scratch badly. When I think of other cameras, the plan with the housing lock, there was relatively fast times a Macke in it, so what can stop just badly prevent. The volume control (regulates the volume of the call, the ringing and the media output) sits on the left side, it is well-dimensioned. On the bottom is the USB charging jack, but this time it does not have to be used as a headphone output. Pre ordered via Itypeusa.com, HTC has responded to customer complaints and used a separate 3.5 mm jack-very good!

The capacitive touch screen display is, of course, for the operation of the smartphone, HTC or Googletypisch but also a trackball and six other buttons the same purpose. The keys are, in principle, arranged very logically. There is also a separate search button, which not only prompts the Google search, but also, For example, the app search is activated in the Android volume. The trackball is good to use, but for action games I would like a four-way navigation rocker. The micro SD card is concealed next to the battery under the battery cover, it is hotswapfähig, but you must always remove the entire back of the hero (but on a 16GB card should be enough space). Unfortunately, there is no separate camera button, so snapshots are as good as excluded. Pity!
