HTC Aria Mobile Phone

 

The Aria is a full-feature smartphone with a very flat and compact form. The four structural fasteners on the back side indicate that this small unit contains cutting-edge technology. They virtually break through the unibody chassis, thereby creating a...

HTC Aria review

 

We review the upcoming HTC Aria, AT&T's pocketable Android phone, to see if it can compete with its over-sized siblings

Small in stature, tall in features ; MobiTV service is great ; Price is very attractive

Users with large hands may have trouble typing ; Screen is a tad small at times

While the Aria might be dwarfed by the latest trend of giant Android phones, it can clearly hold its own. A robust feature set and a pocketable frame make this $129.99 smart phone a definite smart buy.

HTC Aria Android smartphone

 

HTC Aria review: The HTC Aria aims to bring the full Android experience to a smartphone that is small and compact

Has a compact design but its features are still comparable to larger smartphones, good build quality, HTC Sense UI

Glossy body is slippery and hard to keep clean, rear cover creaks slightly when pressed, no camera flash

Glossy body is slippery and hard to keep clean, rear cover creaks slightly when pressed, no camera flash

The HTC Aria is ideal for those who want an Android smartphone, but don't want one of the bigger Android devices on the market. The Aria's downsizing has had a minimal cost when it comes to features.

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 (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 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:

 

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.
