If you're familiar with the HTC Hero (and who isn't?), you should know that the biggest selling point of the device is its custom built UI, HTC Sense. The Sense UI is absolutely beautiful, sleek and sexy, and polished. However, the one thing it wasn't was fast. In fact, most pre-release reviews complained that the lag could potentially kill all usability of the device (sounded like TouchFlo 3D to us). Yikes.
Luckily, the lag problem has been solved because the HTC Hero is receiving an official firmware update that improves on the speediness of the device. The update is demoed in the video above and every aspect of the phone feels quicker--the app drawer, opening and closing applications, sliding between home screens--the whole user experience feels much tighter.
We're assuming that the Sprint version of the HTC Hero will come pre-loaded with this new Hero firmware so future US Hero users will have nothing to worry about. But to those who are lucky enough to already own a Hero, the update should be hitting you very soon.
