Review: HTC Aria
Making calls on the HTC Aria is fast and easy. From the phone's dialpad, you can start typing numbers or corresponding letters on the keypad and the phone will search the contact list for names and numbers that match. Once you've placed a call, the phone gives you on-screen buttons for the speakerphone, the mute function, and the contact list. More features, like adding a call for a three-way chat, are accessible by pressing the menu key.
The phone was zealous in locking the main screen during a call, an action triggered by the proximity sensor. Sometimes it could be difficult to keep the calling screen lit, like when I had to type number on the dialpad. Just keep your fingers far from the sensor, which is under the AT&T logo, and you'll be fine.

HTC Sense uses the best address book in the game. First of all, it synchronizes with your Google account, Microsoft Exchange, Facebook and Twitter. You get contact information and pictures, and you can link a contact to multiple services. For contact information, the phone can store nearly limitless quantities of phone numbers, email addresses, postal addresses and more.
Beyond the simple contact info, each contact card also aggregates all of the text messages and email you've exchanged with that person. You get upcoming calendar events and recent updates from Facebook. You get photo galleries from Facebook and Flickr. The address book is like two or three apps rolled into one, and it's the most powerful, underrated feature on this phone.
