    I might consider it. Need to see how stable and buggy it is first

    I may do.....depends if it has HTC Sense on it or something similar that has been built for the G-Phone (if it yet exists).....

    Roll on 2.1 for the Hero - still love the phone, despite a bit of slowing down occasionally, though hopefully this may get tweaked.

    Will wait and see what 2.1 brings.I will defiantly be staying with the android platform.
    But I'm yet to be convinced the I want to stop with HTC as a phone manufacturer.
    I've had a few software problems and had it not been for this site being so helpful I would have got rid of the hero a long time ago.

    HTC customer support has been appalling and no official news updates other than those on Twitter.

    The second hand price of the Hero has dropped through the floor.

    Nope, I am happy with my Hero, and will only move to another Android handset in ~2 years, if something really good is available by then. Hero has set the bar quite high for me.

    Nope. Will upgrade in a year and a bit, will see what's about then. Don't see any real need to get excited by a phone just because it's by google. In fact, with google's attitude to privacy i'm starting to worry about android as a platform full stop.

    Not sure, but I know my next phone will have no network branding, probably run native Android and may have a keyboard.

    Possibly, just to be one of those people who got the first real google phone.

    Depends on a lot tho, its its just a stanard phone may stick with hero as i love this damn phone.

    Don't like the brushed metal look. Dull dull dull. Hero is way sexier.

    To be honest, I'd also be tempted by the HTC Legend, looks very nice and has better specs than Hero. I do love my Hero but sometimes the sluggishness gets on my nerves and makes me want to upgrade.

    I too like the look of the Legend, Bump im processor speed, if it comes with a AMOLED screen like rumored I may be tempted to jump ship.


    • 600MHz vs. 528MHz
    • AMOLED vs. LCD
    • 16million vs. 26k colors
    • Flash vs. No flash
    • Optical Mouse vs. Trackball
    and all in the same beautiful package as the hero, but more refined, with an updated sense ui. If the Hero gets updated to the same software (Android 2.1 with the new Sense UI) then I may stay with what I have, but if the legend is under

    I'll maybe also look at the Snapdragon phone (was that Bravo?)

    I think that IS the Google phone. However, HTC might release the Passion/Bravo on their own to carriers. Who knows at this point... so much speculation. :p

    The same device has been seen as a branded handset from HTC (Bravo?) so who cares as long as one Androis Snapdragon phone comes along!

    funny

    the nexus1 is basically a knock-off of the hero! just different buttons on the bottom row

    other than that, aesthetically, they're practically teh same
