Excerpt: The HTC Aria was fairly quietly released by AT&T. A silent contender in the heavily competitive U.S. market, the HTC Aria still packs quite a punch. Though it may not have the full power that other Android powered devices have, it's still powerful...
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
Excerpt: Let’s get down to brass tacks: The much-hyped HTC Aria is worth singing about. Maybe not loudly (or in the shower), but it manages to nail most of the basics that some of AT&T’s other Android phones have fumbled.
HTC Aria Android smartphone review - Sense comes to AT&T
20 June 2010
Summary: The HTC Aria is AT&T's second Android phone, joining the Motorola BACKFLIP, and it's also the best Android powered smartphone you'll find on AT&T today. The Aria runs Android 2.1 and has HTC's Sense user interface on it, which provides Android with a high level of customization and cleans up some of Android's grittier UI features.
Pros: Solid build quality, good camera, good call quality and data speeds, Sense user interface
Cons: Poor battery life, lack of LED flash, can't install unapproved applications, no Amazon music store
