The HTC Hero and Samsung Moment are both smartphones based on Google's Android operating system.

While both phones support Bluetooth, the HTC Hero has a better camera (5+ megapixels), and a browser that supports Flash. On the other hand, the pros for Samsung Moment are longer battery life, and a newer version of the Android operating system.
