HTC Phones?

Personally I can't stand Sense (the HTC skin) and think that processor is too slow. I don't consider that model an upgrade over an iPhone 3G at all.

IMO hold out a little longer and get a Galaxy S (original) or better a Nexus S

Also make sure you know which network it will support, that advert suggests its an model suitable for XT but confirm.

HTC make brilliant high-end phones, but a lot of cheaper Android phones are average.

I do like Sense though, it does have a slightly negative impact on performance but it is feature-rich and extremely nice to look at.

As vtecintegra said, it's best to hold out for a while and get something decent like the Galaxy S, Nexus S, HTC Desire S or something similar.

Yeah Sense is love it or loathe it.

A Desire S has a processor that is at least twice as fast as the Aria, a screen with more than double the resolution double the RAM and the internal storage is partitioned far more sensibly. Bigger battery too.

And if you don't like Sense you can ditch it with a new rom :)

Thats a bit misleading as Android generally requires beefier hardware to get the same performance as iOS

Ahhh I see. Cheers.
