Advantages: Camera, speed of browser and usability.
Disadvantages: Keyboard must be used in landscape.
I went from an O2 xda to the Hero, fed up of crashes and slow web performance. I have not been disappointed. The phone after 12 months is still going strong. It has the capacity to do so much more than I first realised- I just liked the big screen.
Camera, battery life, sound quality and an OS are all solid. In fact the phone build is pretty good too, I have never bothered buying a case (I should have) and dropped in numerous times yet it's still fine.
I have had some trouble syncing my google account with the phone, in the end I had to restart the phone (after backing my data up) and starting again entering the account details in the set-up.
Widgets are pretty handy and work well, I have the bbc rss feed and my portfolio tickers on the home screen. I've never used the different moods, but I can see the appeal.
As I say over 12 months old and still going strong.
Summary: All round good smart phone. Android is excellent.
