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...

Poor display sunlight legibility ; Patchy Flash support in the browser ; Card slot under the battery cover ; No DivX/XviD video support out-of-the-box ; No secondary video-call camera ; No voice dialing ; No dedicated camera key, no lens cover and no...

Review: HTC Aria

 

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

Surprisingly handsome, well-balanced design despite wee size. Deftly handles a number of tasks (email, multimedia, web browsing) in speedy stride. 5-MP Camera supports both VGA video recording and autofocus

Included 2-GB memory card puts it woefully behind its competitors. AT&T left its controlling stamp: Downloading non-Marketplace apps and loading them onto the memory card is verboten. Speakerphone is on the back of the phone, rendering audio fuzzy....

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)

 

AT&T's first decent Android phone is a good choice if you're looking for something small and cute, yet powerful.

Cute. Speedier than the spec sheet says. Excellent camera.

Quiet speakerphone. Way too much bloatware.

HTC Aria (AT&T) review:

 

At CES 2010 , AT&T announced it would introduce an HTC Android phone this year. True to its word, it just unveiled the HTC Aria. Similar to the HTC HD Mini in design, the Aria runs on Android 2.1 with HTC's Sense user interface and includes a good deal...

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

Sexy design ; Super fast ; Compact

AT&T ; Can't install non-Market apps ; Lower-res screen

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,...

HTC Aria Cell Phone Review–Only Slightly Flawed

 

Today we're checking out a phone from the HTC lineup, the HTC Aria. And while it's not going to be a match for the iPhone, it's still going to be a solid entrant in the smartphone lineup.

Plenty of apps available ; Dual control schemes

Mediocre battery life ; No non-Android Market apps

The HTC Aria is a touch screen phone running Android 2.1. It also offers an optional joystick control, two gigs of memory included on a microSD card, an optional joystick control in case you don’t want to use the touch screen, speakerphone, 3G, wi-fi...
