    Ive had a play around with the iPhone numerous times, and as nice as some apps are, I just never quite sure. I think im liking the home screen approach that other handsets are doing. Shame really the iPhone would be quite the device if it had something similar.

    I was looking at some phones the other day...

    THEM: "Hi, can I help you sir"

    ME: "Just wondering on you prices on this HTC"

    THEM " Yes, come over here and we can have a chat"

    ME: "Erm, I'm just after some prices"

    THEM: "So, if I could take some details, your name and address...."

    ME: "I'm after a price on the phone and options, i'm not looking to sell my house thanks"

    THEM: "We need to take a few details first"

    ME: "You don't need that to tell me a price. You can talk about options or I can go, your call"

    THEM: "It our policy, it wont take long"

    ME: "Its my policy not to give out details when I don't need to, I'll take my custom elsewhere, thanks for wasting my time".

    Just been searching the web for a comparison and found a test with video footage of the Hero here: HTC Hero hands-on: Flash, keyboard and ruminations (updated!) I think it neat but I own the iphone 3g and thats all I can comment on.

    As for the iphone the plus's are:
    The App Store
    ITunes for backing up your data (Mediamonkey is better for organising and adding media to the phone)
    GPS for finding stuff near you with googlemaps
    Satnav when you get the Navigon app
    Fast browsing (better over 3g than wireless which is strange)
    Seems to have good reception and clings onto a signal (tested on the Isle of skye)
    Push e.mail (although I wish the printers would stop sending me messages as its such a let down)
    The OS is polished
    I've dropped it many times whilst on the booze and its still going strong

    The minus's:
    The cameras crap in lowlight
    Only 2 to 3 days of battery for me (Its not as bad as the blackberry storm that lasts less than a day)
    No adobe flash
    You need to take care of it I've scratched the screen when I put my keys in the same pocket and the shiney black back is peppered with scratches, so its not worth 400 more like 50
    Try texting whilst mashed you'll get to know the backspace button very well
    The Yahoo weather is way off even as I write this its telling me that its raining when its sunny outside
    I've had to remember my phone number as it doesn't tell you

    If I think of anything else I'll let you know

    iPhone and Hero

    Well ive just ordered an iPhone 3GS upgrade and a HTC Hero offline today
    I want to stay on O2 for coverage reasons so ill be selling the iPhone as soon as I get it to use the Hero. The iPhone is a great phone but the Hero looks like it will be just fantastic (plus I dont like to follow the crowd too much) and Android is very intriguing not to mention exciting whilst it gets deveolped further.
    If anyones interested the in the iPhone 32GB 3GS in BLACK or my old O2 XDA Orbit II (in a few weeks) then maybe send me a PM?

    By the way have you seen Google Streetview using the compass on the HERO!?!?!?!? WOW

    @riskybrden: I think one of your pros can also be seen as a con... I don't like iTunes... personal preference I suppose.

    Everything syncs with everything now - I sync me Touch Pro2 with Gmail for instance - so it's not really an issue.

    HTC Hero review

    Oh dear, looks like I may have to give the Hero a miss. Wonderful UI on HTCs part, but the hardware isnt able to cope

    I disagree

    Got my hero yesterday and have been playing with it continuously. It's a fantastic piece of kit!

    Now if only I could find out how to change the text received tone it would be perfect! Anyone know?
