Should I buy a HTC Hero?

I really like the look of this phone. Does anyone have it and can you recommend it?

I had a Legend -which is similar in design. Excellent phone. I know a couple of people who refuse to upgrade from the Hero cause they love it.

You definitly shouldn't buy a Hero now, no.

It WAS a great Android phone, but now its slow, and has no updates. Highly reccomended is a ZTE Blade (Orange SF) instead, which is cheaper, faster and more updated.

Thanks for the advice, might just go for something more up to date

dirtyBit, if you're buying a new phone, mobott's right! I assumed you were looking at a 2nd hand sale!

Definitely not - even at the time it released it's slow CPU rendered it a very cumbersome phone even with custom ROMS.

I had ZTE Blade (Orange SF). Seriously lagging and not smooth while flicking through app, home screen etc. It was on latest firmware. Sold it at the end.
