Things We Want You To Know (Disclaimer)

 
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it Very easy to use,super fast,love the whole layout on the phone. Takes great pictures and awesome videos!! Couldn't ask for nothing more out of a phone March 30, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by HTC does it again! After my Touch Pro 2, I didn't think another phone could satisfy me. Then came my Hero. Your designers ROCK! May 11, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Pretty Good Phone :) This phone is really good. The only reason I only gave it four stars was because mine is pretty slow and it freezes sometimes. December 13, 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by HTC Hero S Doesn't Do It. I have been using the HTC Hero S for about 8 months. I was happy with every aspect of the phone the first few months. After installing apps, and using the phone as a normal user, it has started to slow down dramatically.The battery is another problem in its own. I have U.S. Cellular who allows battery swap for free. I have changed my battery multiple times and still receive a flashing amber light along with no charge. If you like a phone that works consistently for the first few months, I would recommend this phone. If you want something with less issues, do your homework. January 14, 2013
