HTC is fine. They have made middle of the road Smart Phones for years. They have recently gotten into higher end stuff (ie HD2), but they are better know for making Smart Phones that are affordable to everyday users.
Comparing the Droid and the Droid Eris though... there is no comparison head to head.
The Droid has a better, higher resolution screen, a faster processor, a GPU, more memory, and is running 2.0.
The Eris just doesn't match up. That doesn't make it a bad phone. The Eris, like the Hero on other networks, is well liked, if a bit laggy at times thanks to the addition of HTC Sense to the Eris interface. And for its price, it is one of the best smart phones around.
It is better than many other WinMo or BB devices... but it ain't no tape a scud missle to a racerhose sort of device like the Droid.
Im thinking of getting a DROID but I was wondering if HTC is any good or reliable. I know HTC has the ERIS but idk if its better than the DROID so I want to know what you guys think
