Website Reviews: 

"We love the compact design and surprising amount of speed, and Sense remains one of our favorite UI overlays on the face of the planet. But could we recommend with a straight face that you spend a buck-thirty on a phone that you can't sideload applications to, not to mention one that won't see Froyo until AT&T says it will? No."

Engadget, June, 2010

"The HTC Aria is a solid, midrange Android smartphone, but it's a shame AT&T restricts it by blocking Android's capability to install third-party apps."

CNET, June, 2010

"The HTC Aria is definitely an entry-level Android handset, but it’s a few steps ahead of the HTC Hero on Sprint or the DROID Eris (which Verizon is phasing out). AT&T customers who have been waiting for a decent Android phone to come their way will definitely be pleased with what the HTC Aria has to offer."

Android Guys, July, 2010

"The HTC Aria is the first usable Android phone for AT&T. It has a lot going for it, but AT&T really needs to cut down on the bloatware."
