    Tell me why you would choose iphone over the HTC Hero (with the last update of ROM) or oposite.

    By the way, does the Hero still lag after the ROM update that was gonna fix the lag issue? Ive been looking at many sites and threads but cant pick a decision really. And its prolly dumb of me to ask a such question in a mac forum x_x

    I lol'd at that last clause of yours.

    To answer your question, I strongly suggest to search for all the user complaints of iPhone, read them, from then on you can decide :p

    If you need convincing, then perhaps you don't want one. And that's fine. The reality here is - no one here knows what your situation is. What UI you like. What you're looking to do with your phone. Etc. Etc. So there's nothing we can say that's going to convince you.

    You might as well come here and say "Chocolate or Vanilla - Convince me" or "Will I like the new Batman Movie"

    We know nothing about you or your likes.

    I don't know much about the HTC Hero but I know it isn't considered competition to an iPhone.

    I know nothing about the HTC Hero. Want to know why? Because it is no competition for the iPhone. Closest competition is the Droid.

    I personally would go with the iPhone 3GS but I thought this would be interesting, a little view from the other side.

    Maybe convincing wasnt the right word :p i just wanted to hear your thoughts about the case. When it comes to UI, i dont own any apple products nor HTC products, not even any touch phones.

    The thing i like with Hero is the widgets.
    Can you arrange the icons on the iphone at all? Or does the device just randomly place it around?

    I heard you could multitask after jailbreaking it, is it true? :eek:

    Don't buy an iPhone. The Hero is waaaaaaay better. Get that instead. Anything but the iPhone. It looks cool on TV, but it's stupid.

    Why does he even bother posting here?

    No, I'm not drunk. Apple makes some of the worst handsets on the market. Everyone knows that.

    Get something respectable... manly even.

    If someone has to ask an iPhone forum if they should get the iPhone... then they already know what they want.

    That's like as if I walked into Apple store and asked if I should get a Dell, or a Mac.

    Your iPhone drama doesn't dictate how good/bad a phone is. I thought you'd learn this by now.....:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    He's gotta be messing around. I hope.

    OP, yes you can rearrange the icons on the iPhone, and yes it can multitask if you jb it. Though I don't know - can you jb the currently shipping 3GS yet?

    If you can't tell I'm kidding then there's something wrong with you. Yes, I was laughing a little bit.

    The thing is... why would he ask a bunch of iPhone-heads if he should get an iPhone or something else?

    The following makes me have my money on you being serious...

    Seriously, learn your lesson. Your iPhone experience =/= everyone else's experience.

    You are to meticulous and perfectionists to a point various people here (and now me) suggest or have suggested you seek help.

    I actually like the HTC Hero and Eris, even if Eris is a stupid name. I wish at&t would bring out a similar model, I would seriously consider purchasing it.

    Look at both ... figure out which has all the features / benefits you want ... spend the cash .... simple

    This has been done to death already

    I have an Iphone 3GS and a Droid Eris, the Iphone is my personal phone, Eris work phone.

    The Eris (Hero with some tweaks) is a stellar phone, but no way in hell would I trade give up my Iphone for it.

    The Iphone 3GS hardware, UI and overall experience is much better IMO. However both are good phones.

    No. You need to make this decision on your own, based on your own preferences and needs.

    Go with the hero. It will leave more bandwith for people who have an iPhone.

    The only reason I got an iPhone was because I owned an iPod. I always kept my iPod and cell phone with me and I got tired of carrying two devices. Can't say for sure if I would have got an iPhone if it weren't for the iPod. Decide for yourself.
