HTC Aria review: The little tenor

 

First we were hit by a Wildfire, now we're being soothed by an Aria. The HTC Aria shares a lot of DNA with the HD mini, but makes the jump to Android and is ready to take on compact touchscreen midrangers.

3.2" 256K-color HVGA capacitive touchscreen with multi-touch input ; Compact body and bold industrial design ; Android 2.1 Eclair with Sense UI ; Qualcomm MSM7227 600 MHz CPU and 384MB RAM ; Quad-band GSM support with dual-band HSDPA 7.2Mbps and HSUPA...

HTC Aria (AT&T)

 

Cute. Speedier than the spec sheet says. Excellent camera

Quiet speakerphone. Way too much bloatware

The HTC Aria is the first usable Android phone for AT&T. It has a lot going for it, but AT&T really needs to cut down on the bloatware.

HTC Aria

 

Oh, it's adorable! HTC's new 3G Aria from AT&T is as cute as a button – a dainty version of an Android 2.1 superphone. While its size presents some problems, the Aria is nonetheless an otherwise fully-featured cell phone, perfect for those who carry...

Slim, compact design ; Excellent 5-megapixel stills ; FriendStream social network update aggregator app ; Pre-installed 2GB card

Low ringer, voice and multimedia volume ; No camera flash ; Fuzzy Web text ; Slower-than-average Web browsing

HTC shuns Y chromosomes with its female-centric Aria, a pint-sized Android smartphone that’s perfect for purses.

HTC's Aria: Android Phone That Can Be Had for a Song

 

Smaller and cheaper than its competition, the Aria still makes a few concessions for a relatively low price.

HTC Aria Review

 

The HTC Aria is a pocket-friendly Android phone that offers better performance than what its small screen might suggest. You might even call it cute. But this handset would have fared better if AT&T didn'tprevent installation of non-marketplace apps....

Compact and sturdy design, Blazes through Android 2.1 and HTC Sense effortlessly, Good pictures and video in well lit conditions

AT&, T restricts sideloading applications, Lacks camera flash, Typing on small screen a challenge

HTC Aria (AT&T) review: HTC Aria (AT&T)

 

The HTC Aria is compact, feature rich smartphone that runs on Android version 2.1 with HTC's Sense user interface. It has a 5-megapixel camera, GPS, Bluetooth, and supports Wi-Fi and 3G networks.

The Aria's smaller display makes for a cramped onscreen keyboard. Its camera doesn't have a flash and you can't install non-Market apps.

The HTC Aria is a solid, midrange Android smartphone, but it's a shame AT&T restricts it by blocking Android's capability to install third-party apps.

HTC Aria review

 

It's sort of hard to believe, but AT&T finally has an Android phone worth paying attention to. Mind you, the AT&T compatible Nexus One is easily

HTC Aria

 

The HTC Aria is a petite Android phone that packs a powerful punch. It runs the Google Android 2.1 OS, has a 5-megapixel camera, beautiful display, and a fast processor that isn't too taxing on battery life. If you're worried about typing messages on...

HTC Aria Review

 

For a good stretch of time, the Motorola BACKFLIP was the only choice that AT&T customers had to side with if they fancied the idea of experiencing Android. Even though there is now a version of the Nexus One that's compatible with AT&T's specific 3G...

HTC Aria Review

 

The HTC Aria was released fairly quietly by AT&T, most likely due to AT&T favoring the iPhone 4G. This however, does not mean the HTC Aria is not a strong contender in the extremely competitive handset market. With a 600 MHz processor, and running on...

Overall, for a mid range smartphone, the AT&T HTC Aria ranks as a solid 'Good' phone. It may not be the most powerful smartphone in the market, but for the target audience that AT&T is aiming for, the Aria does its job well. With its small form factor,...
