    God i hate android OS so much especially on the HTC hero which doesnt even work half the time!!!
    Have you rooted and installed a custom ROM. Like I know it mine is still slow compared to the new ones and the SGSII just bats it out of the park but at least it is a damn sight quicker than the original sense

    You can't judge Android if you've only used a Hero extensively.
    True but nice for people to know where android has come from

    Ah, but with the Hero there is so, so much that you can do to make it better. I loved my Hero so much! If you're happy to root and install custom ROMs, I'd have a look at the cronos project forums!

    I like the specs of the DHD, but its just not practical for me, I find it huge, just doesn't feel right for me. Whereas the Desire and Desire S specs aren't tempting at all
    Regarding speed and fluidity - the Desire S is almost exactly the same speed as the DHD for most tasks. It's a lovely phone!

    Why go from Hero to Wildfire in the first place? :confused:

    The Hero wasn't mine, and the person wanted back in exchange for the Wildfire. Free phone I wasn't fussed at the time.

    Cex will pretty much give you a trade - Wildfire for Hero looking at their prices. Yeah, it's technically a step backward, but the Hero is awesome!

    Done. But choices were too specific - without some kind of monitoring tool I don't know anyone who would be able to say to the nearest hour how long they were on certain sites, so I just went for round numbers and ended up not really distinguishing much.

    If the match doesn't add up on mine, it's because I counted "Games" to include me sitting playing CoD on the Xbox.

    I tried it twice on clean installs. First boot went great each time but on subsequent boots Sense would not load and would keep force closing.

    So yeah, kinda was.

    My first android phone is currently dispatched and on the way to me as we speak...

    HTC desire S.

    I have had a look at the reccomended app list in the OP
    http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show...postcount=3886
    (I did this as i know what it's like to have info in the OP then people come in and ask questions when the answers are blatantly there)

    But what else do you reccomend to a newb to the "proper" smartphone market??
    I had a Nokia 5800 before so that tried to be a smartphone and didn't quite make it...

    I hear there's a cool free F1 app with live timing and track position etc...
