Android version and market relevance

In June 2009 HTC company introduced its new smartphone HTC Hero. This is a new model, which is running on 1.5 Cupcake.

If you think that for today such an android smartphone on the version 1.5 Cupcake already outdated, then we advise you to look DROID-smartphones in our directory, where we collected a list of devices on the latest version of Android.

Screen, body and battery

Briefly describe the screen and the shell of the smartphone. HTC Hero received TFT-screen measuring 3.2 inches. This is a very small screen, and, accordingly, the size of the device itself also turned out to be very compact.

The thickness of the smartphone HTC Hero is 14.4 mm. This model, you can call “fat”, because today many smartphones with thinner cases are already being manufactured. And in such dimensions the engineers managed to put the battery on 1 350 mAh, and this is very small.

Main camera and selfie camera

The most important thing about cameras in smartphone HTC Hero: main camera on 5 MP, and there is no frontcamera. See examples of photos and videos from this smartphone to visually assess their quality.

Processor and Internal Memory

A smartphone that always works fast, smoothly and does not overheat is a smartphone-dream! You can see how fast our HTC Hero works in video reviews, and now let′s talk briefly about the characteristics of the processor and memory. This model received 1-core processor on the chipset Qualcomm MSM7200A. The amount of RAM is 0.288 GB.

The built-in memory on which you will store photos, videos, music and all your data, has a volume of 0.512 GB. In addition, the smartphone supports memory cards microSD.

Price for HTC Hero: buy or not to buy?

The smartphone HTC Hero got into our price segment “Affordable smartphones from $100 to $200” and began to be sold in July 2009 at a price of $100. Evaluation of the characteristics, probably, you have already folded, and if not, here is our result. HTC Hero is not a very fast smartphone with a small screen and a conventional main camera. And to all this we add that the battery, unfortunately, is weak here.

Is it worth buying now this model of the smartphone, we are talking about our status “Droid-or-Junk”. Of course, at the beginning of sales, almost every smartphone becomes a Droid, and we advise buying such models. But over time, the situation is changing, no one updates the Android version in the smartphone, and in six months or a year this smartphone can already become a Junk. In this case, we advise you to go to the DROID smartphones page in our catalog, where we always show the most current models on sale for today. There are variants from different price segments, so you will have plenty to choose from.

We picked up these models at a similar price.
