samsung moment, htc hero, or palm pre

by lamontcash / November 11, 2009 1:37 AM PST

I need help. I've read the reviews for all three of these phones (moment, hero, and pre), yet still I am unconvinced.

Which one of sprint's big 3 is the best for the buck?

I currently have the Instinct S30 and I dislike it for obvious reasons (especially the speed and inability to play video without spazzing). However, I love the all-touch screen, voice command, navigation, picture and video, alarm, voicemail, and most importantly internet.

Moment, Hero and pre
by Brad1882 / November 22, 2009 7:44 AM PST

Well, The HTC Hero has a nice set up with the sense UI and the dimension are nice, but the color and pixel ratio is no where close to that of the pre or Moment. The hero also has a soft keyboard when pre and moment have a hard keyboard. If I were you, I would go with the moment, It has a faster processor than the instinct and hero. it is also A 320x480 pixel and 3.2in. Amoled screen which is extremely sharp. all of the screens have multi touch but only hero and pre support the "pinch to zoom" feature, Currently run on the moment is Cupcake or the 1.5 version of the android software. But pre has An advantage here, it comes with a 8 gigabyte memory span pre installed (no pun intended) all have accelerometer built in but the pre has no soft keyboard in landscape mode. My advice would to defiantly go for the moment it is beautiful and is better than the instincts of the past.

go with Pre

while HTC did wonders with Sense, WebOS still feels more polished than Android, and just by hardware alone Palm's ARM Cortex CPU trumphs the ARM11 on the other two. Plus they are adding PowerVR SGX acceleration soon, so it will feel faster and there may be PSP-class 3D games coming, the others just don't have the hardware
