Mobile Reviews: HTC Aria for ATandT and the LG Vu Plus for ATandT
(Page 1 of 4 )
There are a lot of smartphone options on the market. For the many AT&T subscribers, we're reviewing two phones today: the HTC Aria and the LG Vu Plus. Both offer a design and features sure to please.
The HTC Aria is a touch-screen Android phone for AT&T subscribers. While not perfect, it does offer plenty of features and a pleasing design that should attract some buyers.The Aria is available for $129.99 after rebates and a two-year contract from AT&T.
The Aria's standard features include a vibrate mode, a speakerphone, conference calling, an alarm clock, and other organizer features you would expect on a cellular phone nowadays. The phone also offers typical contacts organization, but with an extra twist. Rather than just having access to phone numbers, email addresses, and the like, you can also integrate your contact's social networking information. Whenever a contact updates their photos or status on a site like Facebook, the change will be reflected within their contact page on the phone.
The Aria runs on Google Android's 2.1 operating system. As with other Android phones, this opens up the Aria to some special features, such as GoogleTalk, Google Maps, Gmail, QuickOffice, a YouTube app, and more. You also get access to the Android Market and its huge catalog of apps that span various categories. Unlike some other Android phones, however, you will not be able to download third-party apps onto the Aria, as AT&T voided that option.
