From Trusted Reviews:

Androids may dream of electric sheep, but HTC dreams of producing a touch-powered phone that can really give the iPhone something to worry about. With the Hero it pretty much manages to turn that dream into a reality.

We know you've probably looked at the photos of the Hero (or G2 Touch as T-mobile calls it) and thought that it'd be a good looking phone if it's wasn't for the jutting jaw line. However, when you actually see it in the flesh the jaw line isn't anywhere near as offensive to the eye as it looks in the snaps and certainly not as bad as it was on the original G1. This is because the Hero has a more refined styling than HTC's previous two Android efforts. Whereas the G1 and Magic looked quite industrial, the Hero has what we can only describe as a sort of retro sci-fi look, especially in the way the rear of the handset curves around to match the profile of the jaw line. Think hardware in Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey and you'll get an idea of the sort of design feel that it conjures up when you hold it in your hand.
