    Default Eris Is great

    just got to say there hasn't been alot of talk about the Eris but wow what a great phone this is. the UI the multitouch the typing all work great. and its only a hundred bucks. i have to say if this thing gets 2.0 ill be the first to say its way better then the droid. anyone else here loving this phone.

    Know exactly what you mean. SenseUI is hands down the nicest phone/pda OS I've ever seen.

    For $99, the Eris is a steal. Played with the Droid and Eris yesterday and the SenseUI was much smoother than the stock android OS on the Droid. The Hardware and OS are a bit outdated but you'd never notice by just comparing the two side-by-side. If HTC gets SenseUI to work with 2.0 on the Eris as well as it does on 1.5, it'll bury the droid.

    I agree. Got my Eris today. An iPhone it ain't (had one, hated AT&T) but it is pretty good. And for $99, an outstanding value. First Android device and when HTC gets SenseUI running smoothly on 2.0, should be excellent. Compared to 3.1 on the iPhone, you can tell cupcake isn't quite as refined yet. But awfully close and they'll close the gap and/or surpass Apple quickly I suspect.

    i also love my eris. I would like a bigger/better battery.
    i am concerned that the eris getting 2.0 would take away from the droid. But as time goes by, i feel both phones will only improve.
    I also considered the droid but loved the sense ui. In my opinion the eris is way better than the iphone 3g (8gb).

    Yes, I agree with all of you. I haven't purchased anything (yet), but in all my research, I think
    the HTC 'Eris' is my preference, over the Droid, even tho Droid seems somewhat
    'higher powered' and is more expensive.

    I'm not sure I liked the feel of Droid's physical little keyboard, so a virtual (touch) keyboard will be fine.

    The ONE tempting thing about the Droid is its significantly larger screen.

    [All that said, right now I'm probably gonna get neither, as I'm 'not over' being pissed
    at Verizon that I can't just pay full-price for an Eris, buy it without a contract, and
    just use it from home as a PDA on wifi (I don't care about making phone calls on it...as
    I would just use my existing 'dumb cellphone' for that.) ]

    Wait until the battery gets hit with Google Navigation when 2.0 gets released. Ouch... have to recharge after driving down the block.

    Played with the Eris yesterday and I have to say I was shocked at how nice this phone is. To me this phone is better than the Droid. Though, it's a little small for me and still not as good as the iPhone 3GS.

    Great phone though, if I didn't have the iPhone I would have this phone.

    It's certainly not the iPhone, but I'm willing to venture it's the closest thing to an iPhone Verizon has had. I don't know why they don't push this one more. Great price, great little phone, just fix the battery life

    Plus, it's just like the iPhone 3GS ... download the compass app, and the compass works!

    Now, there's an App for That on the network that has a Map for That

    If they come out with a HTC Dragon 1 GHZ with Sense, I will sell the Droid and be all over the Dragon.

    Thankfully its now standard on all Android phones from them. Its part of their phone that gets you campagin. And truthfully ALL their phones now have some version of Sense on them no matter the OS. They want you to be able to tell its an HTC. This is the first time they really started adding their own touch to their devices. Im definitely a fan

    Default Loving the eris

    I just wish I had a few more instructions! I like to figure things out on my own but I need a little help sometimes. That's why I am grateful for this forum. Regarding battery life, I received it yesterday and I played with it for about 2 hours and it was almost drained this morning. I charged for about 1 1/2 hours this morning and it has about 1/3 battery life left after 8 hours. I haven't played with it all day but I have here and there. I don't think the battery is so bad. I'm sure I will have to charge it every night but that's ok.

    I'm very new to this-what does SenseUI stand for ? Thanks.

    This phone is so far advanced above any blackberry I can't believe it. By far the best phone I have ever had.

    UI is user interface. So the Sense UI is the user interface is one of the things that makes the Eris different from the Motorola Droid and one of the reasons that you see different widgets for the Droid and then a separate category specifically for HTC that are not on the Moto Droid.

    I actually spent some time looking through the User's Guide on Verizon's web site not long after I bought my Eris. That helped a great deal on little configuration things. And, you're right, this forum is great for all the detail and app-related things. Considering all the things this little phone does, I think it's relatively easy to use and fairly intuitive for the most part.
