HTC Magic Android Powered Mobile Phone

 

HTC's Android handset for the Indian market turned out to be a bit of a disappointment.

HTC Droid Eris

 

If the Motorola Droid is too much and too expensive an Android phone for you, Verizon now offers an entry level Android phone, the HTC Droid Eris, for half the price ($99 with contract and post-rebate). Even though oddly named for the Greek god of...

Slim, compact design ; 5 MP camera ; Pre-installed 8 GB card included ; WiFi

Short battery life ; Android 1.5 instead of 2.0 ; No dedicated camera shutter release button ; No camera flash

Eris is an excellent and inexpensive introduction to Android for its subscribers looking for an iPhone alternative.

HTC Droid Eris (Verizon Wireless)

 

Verizon's best sub-Verizon00 smart phone provides a slick touch interface, a very good Web browser, and easy access to thousands of apps.

The HTC Droid Eris has a lot going for it. We love its Sense user interface and slick design. Assuming you don’t need a hardware keyboard, the Eris is a better choice than the Motorola Droid for those who want to travel light. If you’re already on...

Verizon's $100 Android Phone Is a Hot Mess

 

Finally, a $100 Android phone! I'll take one. What's that you say? There's a catch?

Hardware smoother than a shave with a cutthroat razor. Brilliant touchscreen is shiny and responsive. 5-megapixel cam shoots very passable pics. Price is a friend to wallets everywhere

Processor lags like a chain smoker running the Boston Marathon. Mediocre voice quality. User interface could use a tune-up. And a valve job. Hell, how about a complete overhaul

HTC Droid Eris (Verizon Wireless)

 

Editors' note: Portions of this review were taken from our review of the HTC Hero . The two devices share similar features.

The HTC Droid Eris offers a slim design, plentiful features, and satisfying performance. It also has pinch and zoom multitouch.

The HTC Droid Eris has mixed multimedia quality. It comes only with the Android 1.5 OS, there's no file manager, and internal performance was occasionally sluggish.

Though its performance wasn't completely top-notch and we would prefer a more recent Android OS version, the HTC Droid Eris is a satisfying Android device that offers a nice contrast to the Motorola Droid. And you can't beat the price.

HTC Droid Eris

 

The HTC Droid Eris marks the second in Verizon Wireless's parade of the Droids. Also due this week from Verizon, the Droid Eris ($100 with a two-year contract, price as of 11/5/2009) shares the Droid moniker and many features of competing Android...

Bright, sharp display ; Direct Outlook synchronization

Ships with Android 1.5 instead of 2.0 ; Front panel softkeys difficult to find

If you can live without a hardware keyboard, the HTC Droid Eris is an affordable and feature-packed alternative to the Motorola Droid.

HTC Droid Eris (Verizon Wireless)

 

The Eris is a 4.45 by 2.19 by .51 inch (HWD) soft-touch black slab that weighs 4.23 ounces. The front of the phone is dominated by a 3.2-inch, 320-by-480 capacitive touch screen; below it, you'll find a trackball for navigation and a range of physical...

Polished interface. Good call quality. Has multitouch pinch-to-zoom. Supports all Android apps

Poor camera. Poor video playback. Slower and lower-resolution than Motorola Droid ; Watch the HTC Droid Eris

The HTC Droid Eris has a few lessons to teach the Motorola Droid, but ultimately it falls short with a lower-resolution screen and weaker multimedia abilities.

HTC EVO 4G and HTC DROID Incredible: side by side

 

Which would win in a fight, a lion or a bear? A great white or an orca? Jackie Chan or Jet Li? HTC's DROID Incredible or its EVO 4G? These two phones represent the best of the best right now, so naturally we're going to pit them against each other and...

HTC Hero and HTC DROID ERIS: side by side

 

Android has definitely taken the mobile marketplace by store over the previous few months, and while the Motorola DROID has a lot to do with it the beginnings of this uprising can be traced back to the launch of the HTC Hero. The Hero was the first...
