    Exclamation HTC Hero VS. Moto Milestone VS. Iphone

    Ok
    so right now i have a LG bl40 (not so great, touch screen sucks. doesnt support google as good,etc(alot of issues) so i am looking to upgrade it.
    I am looking for a nice phone with little lag. it would be nice to have a removable battery, as those seem to be the 1st thing to go. but you can always take the iphone apart to replace the battery..
    i love the qwerty touch keyboard. and i love being able to turn the phone to make it wide screen whenever you want it to(can't do that with the bl40)
    battery life is a nice thing to have also, what is the point of a phone if there is no battery life..

    what do you guys think i should go for? with little lag, pretty fast processor

    thanks

    skip the hero as its outdated compared to the new phones, legend is the next in line, but if you want something with power, HTC Desire

    ahhh, no that explains a few things.

    Telus should allow you to purchase a phone through them (even if they dont offer it) and they will unlock it for you as part of your contract. I just asked a member of staff here who is from canada, she did that herself.

    i already did my contract last week, but i have 14days to return the phone; so i was just going to exchange it for a phone they offered asap in the store; iphone,milestone,hero.
    i just want a phone that is better then the bl40. (faster, no lag, battery life)

    sadly no it wont upgrade the processor, however it will give you better user interface, better resource management. etc

    iphone - well only use 1 app at a time, buggy as hell, doesnt support flash, expensive apps (although admittedly some are good).
    Milestone - never one for motorola's myself, most recent firmware update is crap and people lost alot of the wireless power.

    Hero - very good, solidly built, HTC are reliable!

    wireless power? what is your meaning behind this?

    didnt HTC have troubles in the past with their phones? i heard that from my telus dealer, but they say the new ones seem to be fine now

    alright
    i have done research on the phones.
    seems that the hero can be slow at times, seems that the iphone is the fastest for surfing the net.
    But i have my laptop and take it everywhere.. so for the one time i dont have my laptop i think i can live with the hero being a little slow on the net at times..
    besides its a phone you cant expect it to be as fast as a laptop.
    thanks alot
