HTC Gratia review: Body double

 

Compact but capable, subdued but edgy, old but new. That's the HTC Gratia. With Froyo greasing the cogs, the European version of the HTC Aria is more than a name change – this petite droid is getting ready to storm the Old Continent.

3.2" 256K-color HVGA capacitive touchscreen with multi-touch input ; Compact body and bold industrial design ; Android 2.2 Froyo with Sense UI ; Qualcomm MSM7227 600 MHz CPU and 384MB RAM ; Quad-band GSM support with dual-band HSDPA 7.2Mbps and HSUPA 2...

Screen has poor 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 dedicated camera key, no lens cover and no camera flash

HTC Gratia Review

 

Now before you say that the HTC HD mini has been reborn in the HTC Gratia, we assure you this is not exactly the case. The Gratia has an optical trackpad, which the HD mini lacks, different buttons underneath the screen, and... well, that's it. On the...

HTC Gratia Review - Budget Mid-Range Android Phone

 

The HTC Gratia is very similar to the HTC Aria. It comes with Android 2.2 Froyo and has a 5 MP camera. This review will check out the HTC Gratia specifications, its design and display, user interface, multimedia and connectivity features before...

The HTC Gratia is a very good budget Android option, but I would suggest that you wait a little while. A lot of new budget Android phones should be unveiled, that will offer much more than the HTC Gratia does.

HTC Gratia

 

The HTC Gracia is the European version of the HTC Aria, which is currently sold by AT&T. It has a 3.2 inch touchscreen, 600Mhz processor, 5 MP camera, and Android 2.2 on board. There are a bunch of budget Android devices on the market these days and...

HTC Gratia review

 

Is this 3.2-inch HTC smartphone a little something for everyone, or a small misstep for the mobile giant?

Great HTC Sense-enriched core experience ; Good hardware design ; Intelligent mobile browsing ; Contacts well managed ; Easy to get online and synced up

Flash for the web is a wash ; Battery life is less than stellar ; GPS is a battery killer ; Weaker processor than we'd like ; Lacks HD video and camera flash

For the mid-priced market, though, some compromises are acceptable – if the Gratia's vices aren't concerns of yours, then buy this knowing you'll have a wonderful time.

The HTC Gratia is the latest mid-range Android from the master phone crafters.

Great screen ; Cute design ; Android 2.2 OS

Poor camera ; No Flash 10.1 support ; Limited internal memory

The Gratia performs much better than its low-end 600MHz processor might suggest. Thanks to Android 2.2 and the well-optimised Sense software, this phone zips along at a pace not much slower than its 1GHz-chip big brothers. Only those that demand full...

HTC Gratia review

 

It may be underpowered and lack cutting-edge features, but the Gratia's brilliant, customised interface works wonderfully with Android 2.2 to create an appealing, mid-range smart phone that's perfect for casual users.

HTC's Android enhancements ; Appealing design ; Accurate track pad

Underpowered processor ; Camera performance ; Some normal HTC features missing

You could think of the HTC Gratia as a replacement for the ageing HTC Legend or the mid-range Wildfire, but it's already half a year old and some would argue that devices such as the Motorola Defy provide more power for the same amount of cash.

HTC Gratia Review

 

The HTC Gratia handset is running Android 2.2 with our beloved HTC Sense user interface.

The Gratia has already existed for half a year already (albeit in the US, under the moniker of the HTC Aria) and its performance may look very sluggish compared to newer forthcoming mid-price smartphones. That shouldn't detract from the solid design...

Android 2.2 Froyo OS, responsive touch-screen, great social networking features, cute design

Virtual keyboard is just a little slow, newer versions of Android have already been announced for HTC phones

HTC - Gratia

 

HTC's Gratia is designed to fit in the space between high-end Android smartphones such as the HTC Desire HD, and entry-level models such as the Orange San Francisco, a rebranding of ZTE's Blade handset. But to ...

If you want a smartphone for occasional use of the web, Google Maps, video watching and so on, the HTC Gratia might just suit. If, on the other hand, you plan to indulge in those kinds of activities regularly you'd be better off with a larger screen...
