HTC ChaCha Touch-and-type Smartphone


Like any new SKU, all it takes is one manufacturer to launch a successful product and then everyone piles on. Apple's iPad is one such example that comes to mind, since before its existence no one really cared much about tablets. In the mobile space,...

Leaving aside the Facebook integration for a moment, HTC have done a really good job with the ChaCha as a phone. The name ‘ChaCha’ doesn’t exactly roll off your tongue but I guess that’s HTC’s way of differentiating their social media phones from the...

HTC Status Review


Heavy Facebook users will appreciate the ease with which they can text and post to the Social Network using the HTC Status. Shoppers will also like the phone's low $49 price, making the device a solid BlackBerry alternative for the younger crowd....

Excellent Facebook integration, Clear call quality, Great keyboard

Small screen, low resolution, Tinny audio, Hard to reach battery and microSD card, Slow data speeds

HTC ChaCha review: Status update


Standing out in the ever growing crowd of droids is a tall task indeed. Doing so while keeping the whole thing affordable, is next to impossible. HTC – of all makers – somehow managed to achieve it, vastly improving the market prospects of their...

Light and compact metallic body ; 2.6" 256K-color TFT capacitive touchscreen of HVGA (480 x 320) resolution ; Full four-row QWERTY keyboard and a dedicated Facebook button ; ARMv6 800MHz CPU, 512MB RAM, 512MB ROM ; Android 2.3.3 (Gingerbread) with HTC...

Awkward landscape UI and limited compatibility with some apps ; Limited Adobe Flash support in the browser ; Sub-par camera image quality ; D1 video recording is short of inspiring ; Non-hot-swappable microSD card slot

HTC ChaCha Review


You wait all this time for one HTC Facebook phone, and two turn up. Hot on the heels of our HTC Salsa review last week comes this, the HTC ChaCha , also announced back at MWC 2011 in February and bearing the same dedicated Facebook key as its sibling....

HTC may have given the ChaCha an odd name, but get past that and this QWERTY handset is one of the more usable - and certainly one of the most memorable - Android phones around today. There's a compromise to be made on screen size, but in return you...

HTC ChaCha Review


Latin dances have inspired the names of both of HTC's new social phones with Facebook buttons, hoping to draw some excitement and buzz from the vivacious Latin culture into these sociable smartphones. With our review of the Salsa being less than spicy,...

HTC Status


Just when you thought Facebook was everywhere, along comes HTC with their Status (aka ChaCha ), a phone with a dedicated Facebook button implanted right on its keypad. The impossible to miss button lets you quickly update your status or share photos...

HTC Status Review (AT&T)


We first eyed the HTC Status back in February at MWC where it was first debuted as the HTC ChaCha, but also as the Facebook Phone. The HTC ...

Excellent form-factor with great keyboard, beautiful Sense UI really extends the usefulness of this device, affordably priced, great build quality and design, excellent social network integration

Display is too small for some tastes, not a 4G device, we experienced frequent Force Close errors

HTC ChaCha Review


Chacha your way to Facebook.

Excellent build quality and keypad; SenseUI and Facebook integration work well with this phone

Hard to remove battery cover, average screen quality, microSD is not hot-swappable. Out dated SenseUI compared to other HTC phones sold today

The sim card and microSD slots are under the battery so you have to not only remove the battery cover but the battery as well to change either one. Although I have praised HTC for the build quality on this phone, they have gone overboard with the...
