I have 6 months before I can get the $150 upgrade (although I may just buy it outright depending on when it's released and if 2.2 is out for the Hero by then). I was banking on keeping the Hero because it will get 2.2 through Cyanogen, while the Moment wasn't on the list. Sometimes the Hero gets really laggy and then sometimes it will speed back up again. I think it gets laggy when things get saved to the SD card. For example, if I download a song or something and it gets saved to the SD card it'll slow down and stay that way until a reboot. But I know with 2.2 it will speed up.

its worth the download just to play with.
GPS is now fixed, but location services are not working yet (so googlemaps works, but no weather widgets etc)
its very stable
JIT has also been disbaled, as perfomance increase was marginal under froyo (linpack results are artificial - kind of like Hard Drive speeds with disk cache enabled under windows used to be)
Quadrant is a better performance indicator
Does anyone else have any input on this? I am about to trade on tuesday and really dunno if i should wait for 2.2 because I know the hero will only be able to run a select number of things that are designed for higher end devices, but I would miss multi touch (although multi touch would barely work anyway) and maybe sense UI. I just want that bigger processor because the lag drives me crazy on this sometimes and the number of times I have to hard reset. I do not want to waste time rooting until 2.2 comes out because there will still be lag when multi tasking due to the processor.

You mentioned you'd be able to upgrade soon for $150.
My input would be... wait, save 50 more dollars, and let that choice be between an Evo and an Epic. They'll get 2.2 official, and be more powerful overall while still giving you similar choices to the decision between hero and moment.
If nothing else the Intercept (moment 2 basically) will be out by then I'd wager.
^ Yea but I dont get to upgrade until December.....so I got a while. Other people have been saying just stick with the Hero because the Moment has the airplane mode issue and other annoying quirks, so I guess ill just stick with the slow Hero. The only really annoying things are ring lag, typing pay, and slow downs when multi-tasking. Like I said, i dont want to root because these qirks will still be with the phone.
