What It's Like Using Old Android Phones

What it’s like to use nothing but a 6-year-old Android phone for a month

November 9th, 2015

Given how rapidly smartphone technology has evolved and improved over the past couple of years alone, do you think you could get by right now using an Android phone from six years ago that runs on Android 2.1 Eclair?

Xda-developers forum eyes webOS port for HTC Hero

October 29th, 2010

We can’t even count the number of times we’ve heard someone say, “webOS is great but I wish it was available on some decent hardware.” The PEBL-esque Palm Pre certainly sports a sleek design, but the build leaves much to be desired. When HP acquired the struggling smartphone maker earlier this year, a new hope …

September 3rd, 2009

Well, so much for all that. It turns out the stars were apparently aligned and Sprint’s HTC Hero will indeed be launching on October 11th. Sprint fans rejoice! The nation’s number three wireless carrier’s first Android-powered handset is a doozy — definitely the sexiest official Android handset to date. You already know everything there is …

HTC's Hero swims with the fishes…

August 20th, 2009

We love our HTC Hero around these parts… And what would a hot-selling handset be nowadays without 14 different color combinations? Unfortunately for HTC, they seem to have their color codes mixed up. Since we can confidently say a pink handset would appeal mostly to women buyers, this salmon-colored Hero makes no sense. Powder baby …

It shouldn’t be long now, Sprint fans. Android, Google’s emerging OS that was once scoffed at by Mr. Hesse-if-you-please, is seemingly getting ready to make its debut on the Now Network. As for the vehicle with which it will likely hit Sprint’s red carpet, smart money is definitely on the HTC Hero. Known and adored …
