Is Legend Hero successor officially (declared as such by HTC) or just an inference?

    It seems pretty obvious to me that the Legend is the successor to the hero. It's basically the same phone but with a few (actually pretty minor) improvements. So, we get: faster CPU (about the same MHz, but better architecture), better camera+flash, AMOLED screen (but same resolution).

    The legend isnt the top end new HTC phone, that would be the Desire/Bravo.

    I personally consider Legend's body design much nicer than Desire's (in the same fashion as I think HTC Hero's design is better than Nexus One).

    I just wish the Legend had the processing power the Desire will have, but as they stand right now, I think I'd choose the Legend because of its aluminum body and the chin trademark (more subtle this time) over the Desire whose design is a bit blah for me, despite being more powerful.

    I'm not up on all the specs, I'll have a good look later, but isn't the Legend pretty much a Hero with a different skin? A skin you'll probably cover with a case anyway. I hardly use the camera so a flash is pointless, for me anyway.

    I've been lucky and had a wee play with a Nexus and yes it's nice and everything but well meeh:rolleyes:

    I like the look of the Desire, but I'm still willing to hold on to my Hero for a while yet, in fact I'm not sure what it'll take for me to change phones.

    Maybe a

    Desire has a nice spec..but ugly body...

    Legend with Android 2.1 not to support flash as Hero does with Android 1.6? That doesn't make much 'Sense' (sorry, couldn' help it, but yeah, it doesn't make sense)

    I personally don't mind the Desire's looks, but it's nothing compared to the Legend. Is it that hard to make a phone powerful and sexy?

    I believe that it breaks some fundamental law of nature. It ends up collapsing in on itself, forming a mini black hole.

    I must be the only one who doesn't like the look of the Legend. The HUGE dead gap between the bottom of the screen and the buttons really puts me off. A larger screen would have been perfect.

    I've had a good look at the specs and although they are dammed sexy phones I think I'll stick with my Hero for the time being.

    God knows what they'll bring out in the next year to 18 months!

    I totally agree, if this had a 3.5" screen, I wouldn't hesitate at getting this over the Desire.

    Sounds fair. Read on Phandroid that it is coming to the States on Sprint to be the Hero 2. Desire is supposedly slated for AT&T. They stress, however, that these are just rumors. Verizon is supposed to get the Incredible, but who knows how long that'll be.
