Summary: 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 enough to fit in with AT&T's desired audience.
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.
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. The Aria’s biggest asset is the fact that it’s small.
Pros: Surprisingly handsome, well-balanced design despite wee size. Deftly handles a number of tasks (email, multimedia, web browsing) in speedy stride. 5-MP Camera supports both VGA video recording and autofocus.

Speakerphone is on the back of the phone, rendering audio fuzzy. Optical trackpad is no replacement for a proper ...
Summary: The HTC Aria is a pocket-friendly Android phone that offers better performance than what its small screen might suggest. You might even call it cute. But this handset would have fared better if AT&T didn'tprevent installation of non-marketplace apps.

Summary: The HTC Aria is ideal for those who want an Android smartphone, but don't want one of the bigger Android devices on the market. The Aria's downsizing has had a minimal cost when it comes to features.
Pros: Has a compact design but its features are still comparable to larger smartphones, good build quality, HTC Sense UI
Cons: Glossy body is slippery and hard to keep clean, rear cover creaks slightly when pressed, no camera flash
Excerpt: Nálunk járt a HTC Aria modellje, amely egyértelműen mondható, hogy egy HTC HD Mini, csak épp Windows helyett Android fut rajta. De úgy is mondhatnám, hogy a Legendet kissé átalakították külsőleg és egy-két apróságot lebutítottak.
