Don't expect to get as good a smartphone as iphone.
6 January 2013
Summary: A very basic smartphone. Has the basic functions of web browsing, mapping, program running, etc. However, the touch screen is not very sensitive and stable; web browsing is slow; wifi connection is much worse than iphone; GPS doesn't seem to work properly. Anyway, the phone is a good reflection of its price: cheap and useable, but definitely not something that one would enjoy.
Excerpt: Purchased the HTC Aria cell phone in November 2011. So far I have some mixed feelings about this product. The positives: My first impression of the Aria was that it was a very cool looking device. It is small and compact, fits nicely in my hand and the exterior is coated with a smooth rubberized finish, similar to some high end cases you find for various cell phones. This was a plus because it meant that I would not have to buy a separate case for the phone; I...
Can't hear caller unless it's on speakerphone. TERRIBLE volume problem.

Summary: It's a rather small phone--yet weighty--doesn't feel cheap. The screen is VERY responsive. Great sound with the earphones plugged in, otherwise, forget about hearing the caller. You won't...even with volume turned up to the maximum. Camera is supposed to be 5.0 megapixels but, the pictures do NOT look that great. There's no flash and the shutter speed is SO SLOOOWWW, you NEVER get the picture you thought you were taking.

Pros: The phone is small so when you drop it nothing will break. Fits in any pants pockets and barely shows. I have dropped mine a bunch of times and it doesnt even come apart. i would say its like having 1/4 deck of playing cards in ur pocket
Cons: the touch screen stopped working on certian spots so its very difficult since it has tiny letters. the screen is so small when u turn it horizontal u cant see anything but the keyboard, it takes a while to rotate and wont load hq videos from youtube
Cons: Battery life is horrible, I have had it for a little over a week now and havent gone through one fullday with a complete charge, apps pop up and continue running , the camera is horrible its grainy and blurry
