    Default Some Hero questions for Hero users

    Hello I have some practical questions about the HTC Hero:
    - Are ringtones loud enough? (Compared to SE and nokia phones)
    - Anyone tried a cooked 2.1 Rom to see if the screen got 265k colors instead of 65k?
    - Is the screen bright enough to use it as ''torch'' since the Hero hasn't LED flash?
    - Can you define (by modding the OS) a physical button as camera one?
    - Can you mod the camera driver to have VGA recording mode?

    1. ringtones are loud enough
    2. the screen doesn't get 256k colors
    3. yes the screen is bright enough, you can also download flashlight apps form the market
    4. I think this is not possible, try xda-developer forums for that answer
    5. see answer 4

    Now that the price of the Legend has been posted aka 690$ I think the Hero at 450$ is more than appealing no?

    How 'bout a Nexus One? just in between with it's 525USD I think that it's a good candidate especially considering it's superior hardware and that you've got plenty of people over at the XDA working with it for custom ROMs.

    The Nexus One is not available in Middle East nor Europe (perhaps UK)
    That's why HTC came up with the Desire

    Sure, but you can always order it through a proxy and whit an adress used by borderlinx. sure it's not the easiest way. but you'll get it.

    I am not so desperate to pay 900$ on a nexus 1
    Because you have to add +50$ Fedex and +20% Lebanese customs

    I tried a used brown Hero in a shop, it's really a very good looking piece of technology, it feels so good in my hand thanks to the high end materials. I felt somehow the screen would be better if it was larger,the menu need more space to breath

    The new price of Hero and HTC Legend are close to each other. So, if you want to pay less - get a second hand Hero, and if you want a new phone - get HTC Legend.

    Nexus One is way above Hero category/budget.
    Anyway, if I want a powerful phone like Nexus One, I'll get myself HTC Desire (cheaper, more recent, better support and better availability).
