Head to head: iPhone 3GS vs HTC Hero
It's a clash of the titans as the flagship Android handset, the HTC Hero, goes up against Apple's golden child the iPhone 3GS.
The iPhone 3GS and Hero also share the existence of a 3.5mm headphone jack which can often be a deal breaker for users who aren't prepared to use anything but the best headphones.
Both handsets are also available in black and white, with size (8GB or 16GB) the only restriction determining which hue you can have when it comes to the iPhone 3GS.
There's not much in it screen-wise between the two handsets, with the iPhone just edging ahead of the HTC Hero with its 3.5in display to its 3.2in offering. The two mobile heavyweights are also level pegged when it comes to weight at 135g a piece.
Getting out our measuring tape also proved an interesting experience as, although the two handsets clearly differ in size in the hand, when you look at the stats on paper there's not a world of difference between them, with the iPhone 3GS measuring 62.1mmx12.3mmx115.5mm (WDH) to the Hero's 56.2mmx14.4mmx112mm (WDH).
While the iPhone 3GS comes in either 8GB or 16GB format, you can't top up storage through external cards. That's not the case with the Hero which has 288MB onboard memory and a microSD card slot for that all-important boost. Both are more than adequate for the average business user's needs.
