- HTC hero is shorter in body length
- Do I want HTC hero? well, yes for the extra ram, but NO for the rest. So, no, not really, considering its dimensions... I am happy with my magic. google provides software upgrades anyway so I'd be able to install Doughnut on my phone soon
- HTC has started creeping into a more hip, trendy, and young market compared to HTC Magic, which was targeted more at the young professionals. I'd love to see more iPhone competitions.
Hero is a little more aggressive attempt for the mass market
