HTC Aria (AT&T)

10 October 2010
  • Summary: 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.
  • Pros: 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.
  • Cons: 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.

HTC Aria Review

  • Excerpt: Quote from review : "Oh, it's adorable! HTC's new 3G Aria from AT&T is as cute as a button - a dainty version of an Android 2.1 superphone. While its size presents some problems, the Aria is nonetheless an otherwise fully-featured cell phone , perfect for those who carry clutch purses or those who wish to be relatively unencumbered by gadgets .

HTC Aria Review (AT&T) – the world in your pocket

HTC Phones
31 August 2010
  • Conclusion: If you like having the world in your pocket this phone is for you. Stay connected to people at all times, dig the web, watch Youtube. This stylish little toy might not have the biggest screen but is light and pocket-sized and with tens of thousands of apps available from the market you will always find something interesting to do. The downsides are lack of a flash for the camera and jumping through hoops for installing third-party app (which is AT&T’s fault).

HTC Aria review: The little tenor

GSM Arena
27 August 2010
  • Conclusion: Such a great phone – shame it runs Windows. Did anyone think that about the HTC HD mini? Not only did they think it, someone must’ve said it too – and HTC listened in. Now, this most likely isn’t how the story goes. The truth is HTC knows how important it is for Android to reach the widest possible audience. They’ve been there with the likes of Magic and the Tattoo. With the Aria, it’s a whole lot easier.
  • Pros: 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 2 Mbps, Wi-Fi b/g connectivity, Built-in GPS receiver with A-GPS support, 5 MP autofocus camera; touch focus, geotagging and face detection, VGA video recording at 30fps, microSD card slot (32GB supported, 2GB included), Off...
  • Cons: 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 camera flash

HTC Aria (AT&T)

PC Magazine
24 August 2010
  • Conclusion: The HTC Aria is the first usable Android phone for AT&T. It has a lot going for it, but AT&T really needs to cut down on the bloatware.
  • Pros: Cute. Speedier than the spec sheet says. Excellent camera.
  • Cons: Quiet speakerphone. Way too much bloatware.

Review: HTC Aria (AT&T)

20 August 2010
  • Excerpt: We had high hopes for the HTC Aria. And, HTC for a moment rewarded them. Alas, all good things must come to an end. Read more for the debrief. HTC’s Aria is a compact Android phone. In fact, it’s one of the most compact on the market today. With a 3.2-inch screen, it harkens back to all those Windows Mobile advocates who insisted that 3.5-inch screens were somehow a bad thing. Choice is good, we say.
  • Pros: Compact size, very affordable Android phone.
  • Cons: Orwellian Walled Garden comes standard.

HTC Aria Review

11 August 2010
  • Conclusion: We can’t imagine a tech dude choosing an Aria over a more amply endowed Android model. Aria is too small, too cute (although its industrial design could use a Queer Eye for the Straight Guy makeover) and missing too many new normal attributes (camera flash, HD video recorder, high-resolution screen) for the usual male geek consumer. But Aria is perfect for distaff cellphone buyers looking for basic cell functionality in a clutch purse perfect size.
  • Pros: Slim, compact design, Excellent 5-megapixel stills, FriendStream social network update aggregator app, Pre-installed 2GB card
  • Cons: Low ringer, voice and multimedia volume, No camera flash, Fuzzy Web text, Slower-than-average Web browsing

HTC Aria for AT&T review

26 July 2010
  • Conclusion: The HTC Aria is a great choice if looking for an Android phone on AT&T. Its small size will be a plus for many customers in a time when big phones are taking over the market. Those looking for a huge screen may want to avoid this one, but its small size is great for carrying around in the pocket.

16 July 2010
  • Conclusion: Not everyone will want to lug around an Android smartphone that offers a screen size larger than 4”, but thankfully the HTC Aria fits perfectly for those individuals that want a great Android experience that's wrapped up in a compact body. As for AT&T, the HTC Aria offers customers one of the better experiences out there as it presents them a wonderful user interface that strategically can play to the specific needs of each person.
  • Pros: Compact size, Feels durable, Swift speeds, Smooth looking video playback
  • Cons: Average calling quality, Cramped QWERTY
