Extremely solid and well built. UI feels as good as it looks. App store is huge. Tweakers dream come true.
Exchange seems stable as does gmail. LED indicators out of the box- OS seems very mature for a 1.5 rev.
Keyboard is nice- but still breaking myslef in. Auto correction is just as good as iphone imo. Have a scene for the week, and another for the weekend. Pretty cool feature- I dont need to look at the calender widget all weekend and see that I have a conference call Monday morning.
Voice quality is superb- signal strength seems pretty good so far.
I cant get over how solid and well built it is. As much as I love the Pre, and I really do it is cheap and plastic feeling.
This is a power users device.

The phone has been absolutely great for me so far. I really put my phones to the test the first few days i receive them to study how they react in certain situations. The Hero is very will designed and the Android operating system is great. The phone stopped receiving text messages at one point, but a reboot fixed that and has been fine since. Can be a bit laggy when switching from portrait to landscape but nothing that is unacceptable. Battery life can be pretty awful, but hey...its a smartphone...its a small price to pay for such an intelligent phone. I will keep posting updates as i figure them out.
