    The Heat is Helio’s entry level handset and for its price packs a mean punch. I’ve used this phone for a while now and its awesome. It is very durable and passed a stress test of being thrown out of the 2nd story balcony and only suffered scratches. GPS capability tied with google maps will leave you amazed wherever you go. for $150, i believe this is the best device you can get.

    Don’t call it a phone..

    This phone is just overhyped by Helio, its essentially a Samsung E900 which is a crap phone, the touch sensitive keys are annoying as hell, The stated GPS functionality isnt available int he samsung E900 so I dont know where that came from and also the E900 has 2 megapixel camera and not 1.3.

    HelioMan I really doubt a phone like the E900 would survive such a drop, thats not a stress test anymore thats blatant abuse.

    Actually, it’s very similar to the E900, but if you do some research, the Heat is designated SPH-A303. I have one of these, and It really does do everything it says. I don’t know about the drop though. I’ve been doing my best to keep it in good condition.

    Helio Heat is a good phone, but what do you guys think about the Helio Fin? I think it’s a better built phone and when I went to the Helio store in Arlington, VA, the electrostatic touch pad was whack.
