    Any HTC Aria users out there? Feedback?

    Looking at the Aria as my first smartphone. I like the size compared to the larger smartphones. Is it a good phone for the nonexperienced user? I'd like to check yahoo email, browse the web now and then, get directions, etc.

    Does anyone know if android phones can enlarge the text messaging font like iphones can? iphones use the "accessibility" setting to select font size.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Don't know about the SMS text size but I REALLY like the Aria.

    It is surprisingly fast, no slowdowns or lags that I can see. In fact, it probably is a tad faster than even my VZ Droid (which I also like alot). A nice little (3.2" screen) Android phone running Android OS 2.1 that seems to have got a little lost in the shuffle.

    It's nicely pocketable, but if you plan on doing a lot of text entry the keyboard is small. It's fine for popping out a quick text, or a fast y/n reply to an email, but you're not going to be typing a novel on it anytime soon.

    Agree.

    Although using the landscape keyboard and I'm using Smart Keyboard Pro makes it quite useable (for me).

    I returned the Captivate this morning, just too buggy. I'm back with the Aria!

    I'd have to say it's VERY nice. That's coming from a Droid 2 user by the way.

    I played with one at the store today. I also looked at the SE x10 and the Captivate. I thought the Aria is quite small compared but some like a smaller phone. I didn't think the screen was a bright or colorful as either of the other 2. It seemed pretty snappy just smaller and not as big a screen. Normally I like smaller phones but the captivate has the best screen of the 3. I really like Sony phones but the 1.6 android version is just way behind the times. Supposedly it will get 2.1 at the end of september. The Aria looks like a smaller version of the EVO 4g. After playing with them I like the Captivate the best. I can't say what bugs each might have. The lack of multitouch on the SE is a deal breaker. The -+ keeps are no comparsion to the pinch feature. I loved the way the Captivate's screen looked and it seems to have more functionality than the others.

    The Captivate (like most Samsungs) looks great with a gorgeous screen!

    Then it lets you down big time with hangs, force closes and just weird behavior. The Aria definitely surprised me... it is so smooth, so solid and really fast. Surprisingly so...I'm loving mine

    How's the Aria's voice call quality and reception?

    Does the Aria have a "reminder" feature for missed calls and texts?

    Thanks

    Yeah, it has an LED that you can set to flash for missed calls/messages/etc. I live out in the boonies, and have no problems with reception at all. HTC has really improved the reception on their phones lately. My TILT 2 and ARIA are right up there with RIM/Blackberry!!

    Voice quality on the Aria seems very good for me. However, the volume using it as a speakerphone seems very low. It's hard to hear. But then again, I'm coming from a Nokia N95 with a really loud speakerphone. Reception seems pretty good. Calls are clear even in areas with very low signal strength. I'm able to make calls in areas with very poor signal. I can make a clear call when the signal strength is low enough that it shows no bars but the little "x" isn't over the signal strength meter yet.
