Review: HTC Aria

Is It Your Type? Body The Three S's Touch  

Jun 18, 2010, 12:03 PM   by Philip Berne

The HTC Aria is a slick little Android phone, easily the most pocketable of the bunch. Did it sacrifice too many features to keep its small stature? Find out in our in-depth review.

Is It Your Type?

The HTC Aria brings a small, elegant form to AT&T’s nascent Android lineup. It’s not a flagship like Verizon’s Droid Incredible or Sprint’s Evo 4G, both also HTC devices, but it’s still a stylish phone with a great interface design. The right buyer won’t mind its shortcomings, though power users might find it wanting.

Not a bad little phone

I just fired this phone up today as our store phone and I have to say I am extremley impressed with it. It is a very small, sleek and slim phone. It fits very nicely in the pocket and a couple of times I forgot it was in there which is a great thing I thought. The screen is very responsive, no missed letters or double letters with texting which I have always had an issue with. The signal strength has stayed good all day around 4 bars which is rare for ATT around my area. I hope that the phone isn't overexagerating its capabilities on the signal strength. The interface is smooth and extremley easy to navigate and understand. The speaker is a bit of a problem it does easily become distoreted on phone calls or music. The problem on the music c...
