HTC Droid Eris Reviews
"Eris is an excellent and inexpensive introduction to Android for its subscribers looking for an iPhone alternative."
"When everything is said and done, the HTC DROID ERIS is a worthy smartphone, as it has a lot of features packed into a slim and attractive device. The Sense UI makes it unique from the Motorola DROID, as it allows for more customizations, but the lower resolution display and lack of a physical keyboard may keep some from going to it. We feel that the HTC DROID ERIS is good for consumers who are new to the world of smartphones and want a more personalized and user-friendly experience. However, if youâ€™re feeling a bit more adventurous, and have some extra cash to spend, then it might be worth giving the Motorola DROID a try."
"If you want a cheaper Android-based alternative to the Droid and can live without a hardware keyboard, the Droid Eris is a good choice."
"Though its performance wasn't completely top-notch and we would prefer a more recent Android OS version, the HTC Droid Eris is a satisfying Android device that offers a nice contrast to the Motorola Droid. And you can't beat the price."
"They give the Droid Eris an 85/100 calling it "Very Good" and saying, "If you want a cheaper Android-based alternative to the Droid and can live without a hardware keyboard, the Droid Eris is a good choice..."
"Acknowledging it isn't the highest powered Android phone, the folks at SoftSailor still love it: "Compare it with any other phone in its price range and the Droid Eris is the obvious winner. The HTC Eris looks good, it feels great, it has a great user interface."
"The folks at InfoSyncWorld really like the HTC Droid Eris. Although they note Android might be too complex for newbs, they say give it an 81/100 saying: "Best interface on a mobile device. Social networks integrate neatly with online contacts and calendars. Detailed and useful information presented during calls."
"The first couple sentences from Gizmodo's Matt Buchanan say it all (at least on launch day): "I've reviewed the Droid Eris twice before, when it was called the Hero. The difference is that Verizon's selling it for half the price, making it the cheapest Android phone you can buyâ€”and the best, for the money."
"Got $100 to spend? ZDNet says the Droid Eris is probably you're best bet out of any smartphone on the market."
Mobile Tech Review
"Lisa from MobileTechReview.com gives the HTC Droid Eris 3.5 out of 5 stars and noted the following bright spots: "Looks great and feels great in the hand. Fairly easy one-handed operation. Display is quite bright and sharp. Capacitive display is responsive and HTC has added pinch zoom in the web browser. Great web browsing, excellent support for Google services, can sync to MS Exchange and Outlook on the desktop. Very customizable. We still love Android's elegant and unobtrusive notification system."
"One of the only tech sources to be disappointed in the Droid Eris, Wired.com's Priya points out the pitfalls of the Droid make it difficult for him to recommend."
