    I've been looking for a good written comparison of Sprint's HTC Hero vs. the Nexus One. I'm on Sprint and in the market for an Android phone. I'm torn with whether to just get the Hero now, or wait a few months and hope the Nexus One comes to Sprint for a reasonable subsidized price ($150-200)

    Does anyone know a link to a write-up that compares the highlights of these two phones? I've found a few YouTube videos (that actually seem to indicate the Hero is a bit better in some areas), but few head to head comparison articles.

    I'm really hoping for a Hero2 (the size of the Hero is perfect for me, just a bit dated), but the EVO is eating up all those rumors with its over-the-top hype.

    Thanks for that article mobil3gen. Sounds like the N1 is a pretty nice phone, so maybe I'll wait until it comes to Sprint. Sure wish I could see it in person and hold it in my hand. Hate to buy something sight unseen.

    There is a Hero 2. It's the HTC Legend, which comes with an aluminium unibody and a slightly better processor, but otherwise it's still dated compared to most current Android phones.

    There's no comparison between the Hero and the N1. The N1's specs are just better in every way.

    if your with Sprint just wait for the HTC EVO which will be better then both the HTC Hero and the Nexus One (I own the Nexus One ATT 3G version).

    here's an informative article about the HTC EVO:

    HTC EVO 4G May Launch on June 6

    The Nexus One will not make it's way to Sprint your best option is the HTC EVO.

    Not in the U.S. there isn't. I'm sick of the EVO. The thing is a damn mini-laptop and not right for someone to carry in their pocket. The Sprint rep I talked to had one in his hand a few days ago (I didn't see it) and the guy said "It's friggin' huge. Honestly, it's really damn big." That's a deal-breaker for me.

    Actually its about the same width as a moto Q, which people pocket every day. Same size as the HD2, which is easily pocketable, if your not emo...

    the evo isnt much bigger than an iphone because of the iphones black bars. the evo is almost the excact same size as an iphone with a case, so its not terrible plus the phone is mostly all screen space.
