Review: HTC Aria
The HTC Aria may not be the most powerful Android phone on the market, but it's a very appealing device and a great addition to AT&T's Android lineup. Even fans of Verizon Wireless' Droid tablet phones might want to consider the smaller, stylish HTC Aria. It never felt underpowered, and the lower resolution screen was still bright and crisp enough to handle text and images clearly with no jagged edges or pixel problems.
HTC's Sense interface is far superior to the other custom interface designs available on Android devices, like Motoblur on the Motorola Backflip or Cliq, or TouchWIZ on the Samsung Behold II. It adds more features and functions to Android without getting in the way. It augments Android without changing the experience for the worse.
It would be fun to see a small phone like this with some truly high-end features. After all, can't power users appreciate a device that's hardly noticeable in a pocket? A camera upgrade, or a faster processor for Flash and Live Wallpaper support, would be nice improvements, but as it stands the Aria is solid choice. It sets itself apart from the big dogs with its style and size, without sacrificing the features that make Android engaging.
