    good find...I can't imagine this being as big of an issue on the Moment compared to the Hero.

    I for one am glad they are taking their time to test it and make sure everything works. Would really suck if they rushed it out and it had all kinds of problems.

    Hey! The Moment is a good phone. It's no Droid, or N1, or Hero, or SuperSonic, or Xperia, but it's still a good phone. ;)

    At least...good enough to last me till my update in June. ha ha

    I've had the Moment for about 2 months now and plan on selling it on ebay and getting a BB 8530 off ebay! Anyone looking for a used, mint condition Moment with a CL14 update if I can ever find a store to do it?! ;)

    Why would you ever want to go back to a Blackberry? You just need to try a real Android phone, like the Hero!!:D

    Hero is an inferior phone... Old garbage hardware with a shiny senseui wrapper that wont be able to keep up soon enough..
    qualcomm was right to drop the entire msm line and proceed full forward with the snapdragon chipset... even htc isnt using the crap msm in their new devices anymore

    You could say that about every phone really everyday a new phone comes out which makes the last phone look like shit before the droid the hero was the leading Android device

    No hero used the qualcomm MSM just like every other android phone (almost all HTC btw)... droid and moment were the first real android phones released by manufacturers outside HTC (samsung had the i7500 released earlier but germany only) and they used newer hardware, not the Qualcomm MSM 7201A old chip, but samsung build the S3C6410 and droid decided to go with teh cortex A8, both outperformining qualcomm MSM so much that qualcomm dropped the MSM line and went with the snapdragon which is similiar to Cortex archetecture... Samsung went with the 1176 core instead of the 1136 that the MSM uses and opted for ARMv6KZ arch instead of just ARMv6 like the MSM. Also integrating the 3d accelerator directly on the chip instead of requiring an external processor outside the cpu (increases battery load and latency time)... Also the Hero uses an old 3.2 TFT at about 16k color panel while droid opted for a higher resolution (and a lot more color) panel and moment was the first android released with an AMOLED display...

    numus your knowledge of these phones is second to none, but I'm telling you for a fact I own both phones and everything you say that looks good on paper does not translate to actual usage on the phones.

    I've a-b tested so many different areas of these phones and where the Moment performs better is where the Hero has Facebook integration on Sense, such as camera album and phone book. Also, downloading apps (3 or 4 at a time) can be slightly faster on the Moment.

    Everything else: web browser, games, sprint tv, sprint navigation, youtube, email, accelerometer, market, texting...etc etc, are all ridiculously similar in speed.

    I sincerely appreciate you sharing your knowledge, but you severely underestimate the ability of the Hero. I like both phones a lot, I just happened to like Sense and the size of the Hero a bit better.

    ...and I'm well aware of your argument regarding the future of these phones once they are running 2.1+, which is just speculation right now, so I don't think it's worth arguing.

    Funny how fast you can jump ship consider this is your own words about the moment
    Furthermore, i dont believe you actually ever got a custom rom loaded (correct me if i am wrong) and jumped ship before the cl14 MR was released, so excuse me if i say your "moment" experience is not valid anymore (unless i am wrong and please correct me if i am)

    lol @ busted

    I've said in other threads regarding the Moment vs the Hero that I also overestimated the ability of the Moment vs the Hero. I am very quick to admit when I'm wrong and my original comparison of the Moment vs the Hero was based on in-store usage of the Hero vs the Moment that I personally owned.

    Now that I own both phones I chose to do side-by-side comparisons because I too got caught up with the paper champion Moment and wanted to find out if it truly is the much faster/better phone, which it isn't.

    Also, in regards to your other question, my comparisons are based on stock versions of both phones. I have no desire to root either phone because I think they both perform very well at the stock level. I'm assuming < 10% of Hero/Moment owners will choose to root their phone, so I don't think bringing a modified version of the phone into any one of these arguments is as beneficial to potential buyers as stock comparisons.

    Then your comparison is worthless because samsung did not optimize the kernel like they were suppose to.. to get an accurate representation of the actual processing speed and usability of the phone you have to compare them when they are both optimized.. Not just when the hero is optimized while the moment is not...

    My review was based on out of the box comparisons, lol @ that being "worthless"

    If you don't understand the value in that, then I think you should just stick to having sexy time with your Moment (you really do seem a bit obsessed with it) and stay out of review orientated threads.

    If the MR optimizes the Moment's performance then I will do some comparisons again after I get it.

    So you are saying your hero was brand new.. Out of the box from launch date, no MR updates on it....

    Good question, I don't remember if my original review was prior to the Hero's MR.

    Let me ask you something, do you own both phones?

    Let me ask you something, do you have any idea what you are talking about half the time? You didn't even wait for the first MR before you started bashing the moment in comparison to the HERO, without prespective that hte phone was released a month prior on cdma, and was released on GSM months before that... While the samsung moment was released a few days before the droid...
    I have access to a hero whenever i want to play with it... other then some integrations and the flashy senseui, the hardware is a joke in comparision and when put to multitasking and/or resource intensive programs the hero chokes up like my old xbox trying to play an mkv encoded file...
