    Hey everyone, I'm new to the forums

    I'm here to see what you all think about the HTC Hero. I am planning on getting one (regular GSM Hero not the sprint one) in time for Christmas and would like to know what you love about it and if you are experiencing any issues with it. I also need some advice on whether or not I should wait for a new version to come out.

    I found this on Gizmodo. http://gizmodo.com/5425703/htc-legend-creeps-out-again-looks-even-more-like-the-hero-than-we-first-thought#comments

    It lists the specs as nearly the same as the Hero and if that's the final design I prefer the Hero over it. Would it be worth the wait? Thanks for your input

    Hard to say, if you really dont mind waiting i guess you could wait until the new one comes out (unsure of the release date?), and then do a real comparison, getting the Hero if you still prefer it.

    If you wan't to get the Hero now you wouldn't be disappointed, its a really fantastic phone. I've had mine over 2 months and still can't put it down.

    Thanks, and I've read that it might be released around March, but are there any issues that really get on your nerves? It's not laggy anymore?

    Also do you guys know when it will get the Eclair update?

    yea it still lags but it's acceptable. it could really have done with 600mhz, and a flash, oh and an AMOLED screen...

    The Heros did have lg before the HTC update, its not laggy for me anymore. The update to 2.1 will come about, we aren't sure when tho.

    Ok thanks, it looks like I'm going to go with the Hero! I just hope that the new update doesn't slow it down a little bit because of what it will bring along with it!

    Thanks for all the help and feel free to add more to this thread.... now back to studying for my exams -_-
