HTC Droid Eris (Verizon Wireless)
Manufacturer: HTC Part number: DROID ERIS
- Bottom Line:
- 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.

The good: The HTC Droid Eris offers a slim design, plentiful features, and satisfying performance. It also has pinch and zoom multitouch.
The bad: The HTC Droid Eris has mixed multimedia quality. It comes only with the Android 1.5 OS, there's no file manager, and internal performance was occasionally sluggish.
The bottom line: 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.
Why I bought the Eris and why Iove it so far...
by littlebuffalo on November 8, 2009
Pros: Call quality, network, web browser, customization, price, screen quality, autocorrection, mini USB, ease of use, multi-tasking, proximity sensor
Cons: no flash on camera, occasional lag, battery life

Summary: I purchased the Eris on the day it came out because it is the best phone on the market for MY intended uses. I have used the iphone extensively and tested other phones in the store including the motorola droid, storm2, palm pre and Hero. I left AT&T to buy this phone. The finish and feel of the phone is great. It seems a little wider, but thinner than the Hero. HTC sense was a little overwhelming at first, but after only two days of owning the phone I have the phone set up the way I want, which is something the iPhone can not do.A tip for the battery life: set your email accounts so that the update less frequently. I have multiple accounts set up on my phone and I still had one to update every 15 minutes. I changed them all to update every 2 hours and got significant improvement. Now I get 10-12 hours from a charge with medium-heavy use (about 20-30 minutes of talk, texts, email, facebook and a little bit of games thrown in).
The web browser is excellent. It has pinch or tap zoom and webpages load very quickly. The scrolling and zooming is not quite as smooth as the iPhone but the Eris supports flash while the iPhone does not. Youtube videos seemed very poor at first, but then I figured out that you can choose to watch them in high quality and they look great.
One thing that I love and many people overlook or don't care about is that the Eris charges and connects to a computer with a standard mini-usb cable without having to install any software. I personally do not like iTunes, so for me this is very nice. I just plug my phone in and a computer recognizes it the same way it would a jump drive. I just copied my mp3s into a folder I created and the phone played them just fine. I can also use any mini-usb charger, which is almost the standard for cell phones now.
The Eris has been a great phone so far. The call quality is fantastic, including the speaker phone. And so far the Verizon has had better coverage and more stability than AT&T. Within an hour of owning the phone I had all my email accounts, visual voicemail, contacts and facebook set up without having to look at the manual.
There is significantly less android apps than apple, but I have found the ones I wanted and they work just fine. If I'm running multiple apps at the same time the phone does get some major lag, so multi-tasking is a blessing and a curse. I downloaded TasKiller which helps a lot, but there is still some very slight lag. I would say the iPhone 3gs is "snappier" but both phones do not even compare to the motorola droid. The Eris seemed to be quicker than the Hero, which I found odd because it is almost the same phone. One thing the Eris has that the Hero does not is a proximity sensor.
I have found the battery life to be disappointing. This could be due to the fact I have been using the phone constantly since I got it. The camera takes great pictues, but it does not have a flash which would be nice. I found the video quality to be average.
Those are my initial thoughts on the phone. I am very happy with my purchase and I like the Eris better than the iPhone. I'm not saying that it is a better phone, but I am saying it is a better phone for me. The iPhone works fantastically for what it can do, but I can't do everything I want to do which is probably the biggest decider for me. I hope my opinion helps, but I encourage people to research and test phones extensively themselves to determine the best phone for them.

Beautiful, Slim Smartphone from Verizon (FINALLY)
by billysive on November 9, 2009
Pros: Slim form factor
Verizon - but NOT loaded with Verizon proprietary stuff (like VZ Cast etc)
Cons: No direct media sync software
No built in To Do that will sync with Outlook tasks
Summary: This is a pretty long review designed to help someone decide if this is the right phone for them. I am a someone who always checks out CNET reviews before ...
Summary: This is a pretty long review designed to help someone decide if this is the right phone for them. I am a someone who always checks out CNET reviews before buying a new product and the user reviews have always been helpful. This is the first time I am writing a review about a product - hope it helps.
I am a long time Verizon customer who was still using a Palm Treo smartphone and who had iPhone envy. I wanted a beautiful phone - but with all the comments about bad service on ATT was worried to make the jump. Also I always loved the customizability (is that a word? :) ) of my palm phone and wanted something I could make more like my own.
Along came all the hype about the Droid - I started to get excited - until I saw it. I hated the design :( But then I started seeing pictures of the Droid Eris and I thought - this is the phone for me.
OK - enough background info - here's the deal on the phone.
It is very slim and light - dare I say it is very iphone like in its looks and feel. Slightly smaller screen than iphone but more than adequate.
The HTC sense UI is beautiful and pretty intuitive. Like any new product there is a slight learning curve - but I found myself quickly navigating around the phone without a user guide open in front of me.
If you are reading this you probably know this has no physical keyboard. I was nervous about this. However I quickly found myself typing away with the onscreen keyboard. The auto-correct is very good. It definately takes some getting used to - but now I like it. I hate the idea of a slider phone so this is just right for me.
The touch screen is very responsive. Movement from screen to screen is very smooth. One of the negatives seen listed about this phone is that it has a slower processor than the Droid (and the iphone) - but I have not found it sluggish at all 3 days in. Is the Droid faster - I guess it must be - but does that mean this is too slow? - no.
I use Outlook (not exchange) for my main contact and calender on my desktop. HTC has its own sync program (download from their website) which allows you to sync the phone with your Outlook contacts and calendar. However it does not give the option to sync your Outlook Tasks.
You can also set up the phone to sync with an exchange server and sync your email, calendar, and contacts from there.
Allows you to have more than one calendar on the phone and you can see any or all of them in one view The calendar options are somewhat limited. I used to use Agendus on my Palm and it gave so many views and custimization features. But I hear they are writing an app for Android.
And of course since this is a Google Android phone If you use a calendar on google and/or are a gmail user then everything will sync with ease.
MEDIA (MUSIC and VIDEO)
Although the phone has a good music player and can also play videos there is no built in software to sync your media onto the phone. You have to connect the phone to you computer (with supplied usb cable) and then it acts like a hard drive and you transfer files over to the phone. As would be expected the ease of use of the media player is not as good as on an iphone / ipod - but it is more than adequate. But I am the type of person who wants a phone that can play my music - not a music player that can make a phone call.
At first I couldn't find a video player (there is a music player program) and was worried the phone couldn't play videos. But then I realized if you move a movie or video onto the phone it shows up in the Albums programs along with your photos. (Tip: download free Video Player software from Android Market - it acts as an interface to see what videos you have on the phone - in Albums you cannot see the names of the files just a screenshot)
Phone has standard 3.5mm headphone jack so you can use whatever headphone you like (none included).
ANDROID MARKET - theres an App for that.
Of course no where near the amount of apps available as on the iphone app store - but there are still 1000s of them. No way to browse full list of apps on your computer (found this very disappointing) but there is a direct link from the phone. You need a gmail account to use the store - but that also means all your apps are remembered in the cloud - so you can always go back and find them if you have to reset the phone. When you do find an app you like it is installed over the air - very very easy. And just as easy to uninstall it if you don't like it. Most seem to be free.
I am very happy with this phone. It has been a long time since I got a new phone. I have been waiting for Verizon to come out with something worth getting. Android seems a nice operating system - but I think it is HTC who has really made this a great phone.

2 Weeks in n I love this phone. Its amazing
by banmille on November 7, 2009
Pros: For a phone you can bearly feel in your pocket this phone is packed. I have GPS, WIFI, fast reliable internet, clear voice calls, tons of 5 star rated apps from the Market (free) 5 megapixal camera/video. If you can think it you can probably do it
Cons: When Im running 20 apps and only have 20M of ram available the phone slows down a bit. There's an app for that. Advanced App Killer ( free at the Market ) 5 seconds later I have 90M of ram and I flying again

Summary: Its a phone with great call clarity, no dropped calls. Its also an Excel and Word viewer, a compass, a level, a stop watch, an alarm clock, an MP3 player, with email, a calendar, Youtube, weather, traffic, directions, smooth fast browser, smooth fast touch screen, someone besides Apple finally figured out the touch screen. It may not have 75000 apps but it has over 10000 and all the ones i downloaded are free. This phone rocks

Great alternative to iPhone for Verizon users
by cheekygirl34 on November 19, 2009
Pros: Smart phone, able to customize, add apps, great call quality, love the way it feels
Cons: Battery life, manual on how to use the phone is NOT INCLUDED in box. Had to go to the website listed on the inside of the "tips/shortcuts" manual and upload the PDF (going green I imagine!).
Summary: I've been holding off on getting a new phone or switching carriers to get the treasured iPhone (I love Apple), but I'm glad I waited and stayed with ...
Summary: I've been holding off on getting a new phone or switching carriers to get the treasured iPhone (I love Apple), but I'm glad I waited and stayed with Verizon. I did a lot of research on the the internet before the release date of 11/6/09 and then spent about two hours in the Verizon store asking questions about the Moto Droid and the Droid Eris and taking my time to really work both phones and get a feel for how they work, what they offer, how they feel in my hands, etc. In my opinion, the Eris is a better buy...not only does it look sleeker and feel better in my hand, but I didn't enjoy the aesthetics of the Moto Droid...which was too clunky. Did not like the slide-out keyboard either.
Even though the Moto Droid is already running Android 2.0, it wasn't enough to push me towards the Moto Droid...I have to actually like looking at a phone and enjoy how it feels in my hand, but that is my own personal preference. HTC is working on the Android 2.0 upgrade for the Eris, and because of the extreme customization that can be done with the Eris the upgrade is taking a little longer. I can wait for the 2.0 upgrade if it also means I can save $100 off the cost of a new phone as well. I should mention that I did like the docking station "alarm clock" concept of the Moto Droid...wish the Eris had something similar, but again, it wasn't enough to sway my purchase decision.
PHONE FUNCTION. First and foremost, this device has to be a PHONE for me and not a mobile computer. I am impressed with call quality, how contact info is organized and how the touch-screen numbers are large when you go to place a call that you manually have to type in.
BATTERY LIFE. Out of the gate, I didn't get a lot of battery life - but then again I was busy customizing and loading apps, calling friends to verify call quality, playing games to see how the interface worked, etc. I've found that by switching the phone into "airplane mode" when I'm at work (inside the building - cannot get phone service) it saves battery life as the phone is not actively searching for a signal or for updates. I've had the Eris since it's debut on November 6th and the battery seems to be lasting a lot longer now than it did the first week I had it...which is a good thing.
CUSTOMIZE, CUSTOMIZE, CUSTOMIZE! Love this phone for that reason. Suits my needs perfectly. I can change the home screen interface to reflect if I'm in "work mode" or "casual mode" (there are other options available, but those are the only two I use). You can pull all the info you wish to see on the SEVEN different home screens then save the "Theme" under a custom name you give it. This is a great feature if you wish to keep your personal apps separate from your business apps.
CAMERA. Love that it has a 5.0 megapixel camera to capture those impromptu photo ops. Wish it had a flash, but am not too dissappointed that it does not. When I want to take "real" photos I just use my "real" camera and not my phone. I love the "albums" feature and how I can seemlessly flow through the pictures I've taken or downloaded to my phone.
SOCIAL. Love that I can do updates to my social network pages on the go and that all of my contacts also get updated. Convenient!
WEB. Love that you can save bookmarks of your frequently-visited web pages!!! I've found the browser fast and responsive.
MP3. Have not tried to upload music yet. Will be interested to see how sound quality is and how the interface is. I'm used to seeing Verizon's music interface so this will be different as it does not support V-Cast.
Overall, great phone and it's a "keeper" for me. I've been loyal to LG phones in the past, but HTC has certainly swayed me to try something new...and I'm glad I did.

Cons: Looking forward to 2.0 operating system

Summary: This phone has it all. Don't mean to review other phones here, but I have tried a number of phones lately. Had jailbroken Iphone for 30 days, liked the phone, AT&T call quality unacceptable. Mytouch 3G was nice, but could not type with any accuracy on the soft keyboards, even with HTC, Touchpal, and Better keyboard apps. Motorola Droid was heavy, and slide out keyboard was worthless, soft keyboards not so great either. T Mo BB Bold was very good, except call quality was terrible, very unblackberrylike. Browser stinks too.
I was nervous about the typing experience on this phone, but I am very impressed. The Iphone soft keyboard, to me, is excellent, and this one, even in portrait mode, is a close second. Call quality has been very good, happy with Verizon thus far. Love the HTC sense UI. Had read phone could be sluggish, not really a problem for me, use task killer liberally though.
This thing is a sleeper, GREAT Phone, especially for the initial cost.

Summary: I own a small marketing consultant biz and I am always looking for the next app and gadget that helps me multi task and stay connected in real time..this phone is all that and then some..I finally am able to walk away from my computer and continue to do the same tasks that i would on the comp with this phone..I utilize a lot of IM services and Social network tools as well as Financial streaming data such as stock quotes etc..this phone allows me access to all of those services and keeps me updated to those services in real time..FANTASTIC ..the other day while utilizing the Wi-Fi I was emailing and Skyping while having a phone conversation...maybe that sounds like a little much for some of you but my job requires some major multi tasking lol..
The GPS functionality on this phone almost takes this device into the SciFi realm..the other day i was in a town and wanted something to eat..so utilizing one of the augmented reality apps I was able to scan the horizon and the app pointed out the eateries and gave directions to them AMAZING..Also, one of my hobbies is to hunt, hike and scout...there is an app for this phone that allows you to record your tracks and stats, take pics and send it off to google maps to create a nice personalized map of my trip..very useful
Some say this phone is sluggish..well my comment to that is get a task manager installed and kill some of the apps running in the back ground..I push this phone to the max and sometimes it feels sluggish but then i open task manger and realize i have just about every app on the phone running at the same time ..even a comp slows down with too many apps running..
THE BATTERY..at first i was worried about the battery issue..out of the box it stunk..but by utilizing some settings configurations and an app killer I can get a good solid days use out of my phone now..and I have always charged my phones at night so a 1 day use doesnt bother me
The customization of this phone is really only limited by your imagination and whether or not a developer can develop it..I am all for the Android experience and where its heading and I also like what HTC has done with this phone ..really a gem

Summary: Like many, I too debated on which Android device to purchase but in the end I decided on the Eris. The screen and the overall layout is remarkable and I couldn't be happier with its performance.
With all of the negative reviews out there in regards to the battery life and performance on the Eris, I only have one thing to say. Don't listen to them. The battery needs to calibrate and go through a small conditioning process in order to last longer. When you initially activate the phone let the battery COMPLETELY DISCHARGE for at least 3 days in a row.
Afterwards, set the functions and sceens to your liking and let it go.
After my own personal experiences with the Eris, I have found that IT IS NOT necessary to download any of the App Killer or Task Killer apps off of Android Market. You don't need them. If the phone bogs down, it will manage its own memory, after all, it is a smartphone, right? Those programs like Task Panel, TasKiller, etc, drain more than they conserve because they run and are constantly killing background apps. No need for it to do that. So leave them be, despite suggestions and you should be fine. You can leave GPS and WiFi ON, but be aware that some widgets and apps ( like WeatherBug) constantly run GPS in the background and are a bit redundant, seeing that you already have AccuWeather built in on the display clock.
The only management apps I suggest downloading are Power Manager to manage power profiles by whats left in the battery, and LookOut to scan for viruses, malware and gives you a "where's my droid" function as well.
With both of these apps and my own personal setup I generally have an awake time of around 40% which is still a little high, but my battery lasts 14 hours or more.
IF YOUR PHONE DRAINS PREMATURELY AND YOU FEAR THAT YOU MAY HAVE THE AWAKE TIME SOFTWARE BUG (which I did not), refer to the android user forums for advice, or better yet, since it is a Google phone, GOOGLE IT! LOL
I hope my review and advice helps, and influences to give the Eris a fighting chance. Its well worth the time and effort. I'm going on 2 weeks operation without a hitch and very confident that this phone will serve all of my needs as a smartphone. While it only has Android 1.5, we should see 2.0 or 2.1 in the near future.
Good luck with picking the right phone for you, and Happy Holidays.

Surprisingly Good Phone
by bssapp on December 9, 2009
Pros: Touch screen. Apps. Speakerphone (try out through a car casette adapter!) Media capabilities. Phone clarity. Ease of use.
Cons: Honestly, not a lot. The touch keyboard takes some getting used to, but other than that it's pretty amazing. The battery can get used up quickly.
Summary: I bought this phone from Verizon on an upgrade and with the rebate. So at $19 walking out the door I was pleased with the deal I got to begin ...
Summary: I bought this phone from Verizon on an upgrade and with the rebate. So at $19 walking out the door I was pleased with the deal I got to begin with. But I even told the salesman that if Verizon was able to get the iPhone in the future "I'd throw this phone in a ditch and buy an iPhone whatever it costs." See, I'd love an iPhone, it's AT&T I won't use. And I really like Verizon.
But now I had a droid I didn't expect much out of. And it went out of its way to convince me of its usefulness. I switched from a moto q, a blackberry like phone. The biggest change is the onscreen keyboard, but I'm getting used to it. I chose the eris over the moto droid because I like a candybar style phone, and in my experience moving parts, like a sliding keyboard, break.
The apps are amazing. Games are fun and responsive. Web is easy. You even get iPhone-like pinching and swipeing. The screen is rich and colorful.
Using media like mp3s and video took a little more research and experimentation. The best way, I've found, to get media onto the eris is with an app called usbmount. It allows the sd card in the phone to be seen like another drive on my mac. Then transfers and organization are simple. I use an app called meridian for playing music and mp4s encoded through quicktime. 500 kbps seems to be ideal for mp4s.
Google maps and the direction capabilities of the droid really surprised me. I was looking for a gps, but no more. Also, my ipod stays on the dock. I casually surf the web on my phone, so I use my desktop mac about half as much. Although I'm still a holdout for the iPhone coming to verizon, I won't be tossing put my eris the day that happens.
The battery life could be better, but it can charge through miniusb so there are plenty of opportunities to do so. Also, if you turn off the WiFi and gps antennas when you're not using them, the battery lasts much longer.
So, 1 month in and this little phone has completely changed my mind. I really like it. I'd buy it again, at full price.
And to prove the functionality, I even wrote this review on my eris.

Pros: track ball, good resolution, multiple screens to customize, widgets, touchscreen, call quality and lot of features
Cons: battery life

Summary: This is a nice phone for the price.
One of the major problems I am facing is the battery. I have used LG env touch, IPhone, Samsung rogue, LG Chocolate in the past .. and I would say this was the worst in terms of battery. It drains out really quick. Besides the battery issue, there are no other issues with this phone [atleast so far].
Good things - The touchscreen feel was really better when compared to LG env touch and rogue. [If I have to compare with Iphone .. no difference in the quality]. I will definitely say .. this is the first verizon phone [in the ones I have used] that made me happy with the touch screen.
Other notable things is the customizable home screen. Though it got only 7 screens to customize .. I think they are more than enough [in general]. Instead of adding regular icons to these screens, try adding their widgets that came preinstalled with this phone. They are really sweet.. I liked them a lot !!
The android os is not the current version .. but, I heard HTC is trying to bring 2.0 for this phone too .. then, it will be a software upgrade [as per the verizon sales person].
The other cool thing is the track ball .. I never used this track ball in the past .. But, I became a fan of it as soon as i started using it. It is very nice and easy to use ..
Just to mention - Camera quality is average .. , no key board. [if you are a serious texter and needed a keyboard... look into motorola droid .. ] ..
I know it is heard to cover everything .. but, I am sure .. I mentioned the most important things I liked/disliked .. In case if I found anything worth mentioning with this phone .. I will update it here.

New to Android and I love it!

Pros: Slim design, Great touch screen, HTC Sense User Interface, Customizable, Lots of free apps

Summary: I know that many of you out there want to compare every phone that comes out to the iphone. That's fair considering that the iphone has pretty much set the standard to what a smart phone should be. But like anything, there's no single device that's going to be perfect for everyone. Whether it be which service provider it's on, or form factor, customization, etc.
HTC has done a wonderful job of taking the Android OS and putting it's own twist on it. It is a clean and fairly simple to use interface. Sure it has some quirks about it but what device doesn't? Android is still very young but I think it has already shown us what kind of potential it has with the release of 2.0.
If your on the market for a new phone and cannot decided between an Android device or and IPhone the best thing to do is go out and get your hands on all of them. Is the Android an "IPhone Killer"? No it's not. Does it come close to being as good of a device as an IPhone? It sure does. There's pro's and con's to all the devices out there and all you can do is keep an open mind when checking them out. Don't let your friends/co-workers make up your mind for you.
As for me...I'm pretty happy with my Droid Eris so far. It's fairly easy to use. The HTC Sense user interface looks good and seems pretty smooth. GPS seems to be pretty accurate. Call quality is great! Customization is nice. Browsing the internet is worlds apart from my blackberry. And the "pinch" zoom is nice. My only real complaint is the battery life. I've had to make a few tweaks to the settings to get a full day of battery life with normal use ie text, facebook, twitter, google maps, little internet browsing.
Although I'm a new Android user I can already see that I will be one for a long time to come.
