  • Conclusion: The HTC Droid Eris has a few lessons to teach the Motorola Droid, but ultimately it falls short with a lower-resolution screen and weaker multimedia abilities.

HTC DROID ERIS Review

Phone Arena
17 November 2009
  • Conclusion: When everything is said and done, the HTC DROID ERIS is a worthy smartphone, as it has a lot of features packed into a slim and attractive device. The Sense UI makes it unique from the Motorola DROID, as it allows for more customizations, but the lower resolution display and lack of a physical keyboard may keep some from going to it.
  • Pros: Sense UI customizations, Device feels comfortable in the hand, Good call quality and signal reception, Produces nice looking photos
  • Cons: Display shows pixelation with text in the web browser, Lag when opening or changing between programs, Not as much talk time as the Motorola Droid

HTC Droid Eris (Verizon Wireless)

LAPTOP Magazine
16 November 2009
  • Summary: The HTC Droid Eris has a lot going for it. We love its Sense user interface and slick design. Assuming you don’t need a hardware keyboard, the Eris is a better choice than the Motorola Droid for those who want to travel light. If you’re already on Verizon, the Eris is the carrier’s best smart phone under $100. However, if your contract is up (or almost up) the HTC Hero on Sprint is an even better deal.
  • Pros: Thin but solid design, Excellent HTC Sense user interface, Mutlitouch support, Very good Web browser, 5-MP camera,
  • Cons: No camera flash, GPS navigation costs extra, More expensive than HTC Hero over two-year contract,

iOS Central HTC Droid Eris

Macworld
8 November 2009
  • Excerpt: (1 items) HTC’s Droid Eris is the second in Verizon Wireless’s parade of the Droids. The Droid Eris shares many features of competing Android phones, but it also adds some touches that improve the experience for business users. The Droid Eris touchscreen handset (a CDMA version of the HTC Hero ) has dimensions similar to, and much of the same functionality as, the T-Mobile myTouch 3G ( ) GSM unit, also made by HTC.
  • Pros: Direct Outlook synchronization, Bright, sharp display
  • Cons: Ships with Android 1.5 instead of 2.0, Front panel softkeys difficult to find

HTC Droid Eris

MobileTechReview.com
7 November 2009
  • Conclusion: The Droid revolution has come to Verizon, starting with the Moto Droid and the HTC Eris. While the Moto Droid captivates us with its seductive display, strangely modern industrial design (where ugly almost merges with sleek) and very fast CPU; the Eris says "I'm a phone and I'm friendly to use and hold". HTC's industrial design has been spot-on lately and the Eris is attractive and ergonomic.
  • Pros: Compact and comfortable phone, HTC Sense UI., Looks great and feels great in the hand. Fairly easy one-handed operation. Display is quite bright and sharp. Capacitive display is responsive and HTC has added pinch zoom in the web browser. Great web browsing, excellent support for Google services, can sync to MS Exchange and Outlook on the desktop. Very customizable. We still love Android's elegant and unobtrusive notification system.
  • Cons: Has a GPS but no VZ Navigator, just Google Maps., Media players lacking and there's no media syncing (you'll have to drag files to the microSD card yourself). No corporate grade security features like remote wipe. Android Market is weak in the games department. No VZ Navigator or V Cast services.
