Conclusion: The Gratia has already existed for half a year already (albeit in the US, under the moniker of the HTC Aria) and its performance may look very sluggish compared to newer forthcoming mid-price smartphones.
Summary: It may be underpowered and lack cutting-edge features, but the Gratia's brilliant, customised interface works wonderfully with Android 2.2 to create an appealing, mid-range smart phone that's perfect for casual users.
Pros: HTC's Android enhancements; Appealing design; Accurate track pad.
Cons: Underpowered processor; Camera performance; Some normal HTC features missing.

Summary: HTC Gratia has Qualcomm 600 Mhz CPU which has same performance as the iPhone 3G, which is certainly respectable. The same can be said for the amount of 384 MB of RAM which is impressive for a phone in the price range and suited very well for multitasking.
Cons: 3G, Wi-Fi, up to 32 GB memory support, 5 MP camera, 3.2 inches touch screen display, Mediocre sunlight visibility of the display, Pictures come out with soft, unfocused spots, Lack of Adobe Flash 10.1 support in the browser
Summary: While the lack of a camera flash and a dedicated camera button prevent this phone from being the "ideal" phone for me personally, it comes pretty damn close (of course, AT&T is a deal breaker too).
Summary: The build quality of the HTC Gratia is impressive. The optical touchpad feels like a throwback to older HTC handsets which is unsurprising since the Gratia is, to all intents and purposes, an older model that's been warmed over for the UK market.
