HTC Hero Video Review - Physical Specifications

The HTC Hero feels remarkable solid in your hand in comparison to recent HTC releases such as the Tattoo or the Magic, not only does the phones weight lend the device a sense of solidity but also a real feeling of durability. The earpiece is protected by a mesh grating this is just as elegant as it is durable, and the volume rocker is made up of a solid, sensitive button that will not wear excessively. HTC also listened to recent complaints concerning previous models, and added a 3.5 mm headphone jack at the top of the phone, so you can now converse in utmost privacy or listen to music without interrupting those around you.

Though highly functional and stylish, the design of the HTC Hero is not without a few flaws, though they are very minor. The back button is placed very inconveniently on the device’s chin, and considering how much a back button is used on a mobile device, this can quickly become a nuisance, particularly for right handed users. The button is actually perfectly placed for a left hand user though. The chin also makes the HTC Hero somewhat awkward to carry around in a pocket, though any sharp mobile phone users will likely have their own carrying case to protect such an investment.
