Getting my First Smartphone.( HTC Legend)

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I really like even tho its been out over a year. HTC Legend just love the look of it and I don't need the best of the best..


Has anyone used this and how did u like or dislike the phone. Prolly gonna use Virgin mobile in Canada..

I heard the processor is little slow and it can be overclocked to really help the device. Any input be cool.

I would REALLY suggest against it. I have an htc hero and it lags like hell and there is nearly no official updates coming out for it ever. If it weren't for the custom roms it would be a useless phone. If anything I would suggest you just get an iphone 3gs from ebay and jailbreak it. Honestly, you will enjoy it MUCH more than the legend.

You can't comare the hero to the legend, two different generations... the legend would have double the performace of the hero easy. Unfair comparison is unfair.

I have a desire (the legends brother, almost identical specs internally) and its a lovely phone, sure it isn't best when stock but once hacked up a bit its buttery smooth and fun to use. This beats the pants of most phones (probably all stock) and I love it to death.

Nope, only a few extra steps over jailbreaking an iphone (although it is possible to brick them, still minute but it does happen if files are corrupt).
