Compact design

Unlike some of the latest devices, like the HTC Evo 4G, the Aria is quite compact. It measures 4.6 inches tall by 2.3 inches wide by 0.5 inch thick and weighs 4.6 ounces, so it's easy to slip into a pants pocket. The one trade off is that you get a smaller 3.2-inch screen.

Navigation buttons

Below the display are four touch-sensitive controls--home, menu, back, and search--and an optical joystick.

Sunny surprise

Like the HTC HD Mini, when you pry off the back cover, you'll find that the internal part of the phone is yellow. It's purely superficial but still kind of cool.

Picture quality

The Aria has a 5-megapixel camera, but without a flash indoor shots came out a bit dull.
