Live Wallpapers

Before I run out and buy this phone, will it have the ability to run live wallpapers? The "in depth" says that it doesn't right now. Is that a software issue or processor issue?
I believe this is going to be more of a processor issue. Solely based on the fact that the Aria is running 2.1 already, just like the Nexus One. Difference being that the Nexus has the 1ghz processor, where the Aria has only a MHz. The nexus one does ...

Audio Volume ...???

I'm really interested in the Aria but I've read some reviews indicating the ringtone volume is very low, speakerphone volume is very low, and call audio is low but can be enhanced by using the "hearing aid" setting (whatever that is).

Are these issues pretty prevalent in the Aria - or were they just isolated phone issues?

I have the Aria, and absolutely no problem hearing it. I think it's loud enough for the average person. I'm gonna say it's isolated issues.

Two Questions

Can you make the radio work without the headphones in other words can the radio play out loud. Also can it play youtube videos
I haven't tested it on the Aria yet, but on my other HTCs you have to have the headphones hooked up to it so it can use the cord as the FM antenna but you can listen to the radio through the loudspeaker on the phone.

Since it's Android, you should...
You can play the radio through the speaker but the headphones have to be hooked up. It has an icon for youtube but I haven't tried it yet..

Radar on Weather App

I was looking at getting this for my wife and she is a weather freak. Does the weather app support the radar view?
I have not got mine yet.. but.. looking at the Android apps you should be able to get it if it is not on the phone..

ATT & Google Maps - need clarification

Within an ATT plan, does google maps with navigation truly work on this phone, or did ATT disable the google navigation feature due to competition with its' own paid version of ATT Navigation?
I really meant to ask if the TURN-BY-TURN naviagation feature got disabled?

not the most powerful

In the wrap up you say "it may not be the most powerful phone" in android's line-up, does this mean its not using the snapdragon processor, and if not what is it running? BTW this is probably the best written review I have read on this site for a wile nice job πŸ™‚
No the processor isn't a Snapdragon its a Qualcomm MSM 7227 600MHz processor but its really responsive.

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...

...piece of hardware.

Just wish it didn't have that 'peel off' backing.

Although those 'industrial screws' on the back LOOK tough.
The reviews say its well made, well we shall see.

2.1 FTW

Looks like att will allow a decent android phone on the network after all.
The Galaxy looks even nicer! I'm actually kind of surprised that ATT is going through with it.
