I just bought a new phone last weekend. I bought the HTC Hero which was awarded the best phone in the recently concluded Telecommunications fair in Barcelona Spain. I think it's an award that is well deserved.
When I bought the phone - I had high hopes for its technical capabilities. Most of those expectations were actually exceeded. I have some gripes but nothing that actually makes me regret buying it. The only real issue that I have with it though is the fact that it's camera doesn't have a flash. This means that for poor lighting conditions, I can't rely on the camera to give me a decent picture.
I was however pleasantly surprised that the Android Market actually has interesting programs that makes the Picture Taking experience a joy on the HTC Hero. My favorite as of the moment is FXCamera. The pictures that I took are actually comparable to the pictures that we take from our Lomo cameras. So I guess - I have minimized that concern that I have on the less than excellent camera of the phone. I am sharing the shots that I took using FXCamera.
