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 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...

HTC ChaCha Review – the (un)official Facebook phone

 

While this is in no way the official Facebook phone, there is no doubt that the HTC ChaCha was created with Facebook users in mind. Posting wall statuses and sharing content over Facebook is what the HTC ChaCha been primed to do, and it does it pretty...

Built like it was a high end smartphone ; Good Facebook integration (The Facebook chat application and the dedicated Facebook button brings the ChaCha closer to becoming a true Facebook phone) ; Highly useful and well made full QWERTY keyboard ;...

Screen might be too small for some people ; HTC once again skimps on memory

I have no issues with the HTC ChaCha being powered with an 800 MHz processor, I honestly think the phone is fast enough as it is. The battery life of the ChaCha gets no complains from me as well as the ChaCha easily lasted me a day of use from a single...

HTC ChaCha Review

 

This is our full review of the HTC ChaCha. The ChaCha is one of HTC's two Facebook phones with deep integration with the social network keeping you always connected.

Excellent build quality ; Great QWERTY keyboard ; Facebook button and integration ; Good battery life ; Solid performance

Non hot-swappable microSD card ; Medium camera quality ; Processor is rather slow compared to nowadays' dual-core CPUs ; Screen might be too small for some

There’s no doubt about the target audience for the HTC ChaCha. People who are also living their lives on Facebook will love this phone and so will those who send lots of text messages and e-mails. The QWERTY keyboard on the ChaCha is great and typing...

HTC ChaCha Review

 

There is no way that you can look at the ChaCha's design and remain completely indifferent. There's just a scrappiness and audaciousness about it, not to mention all the design throwbacks to a simpler time when phones were still smart, but not, as...

As a Facebook phone it has no choice but to succeed, since there’s nothing quite like it out there in terms of convenience. This phone won’t even need to be sold to people for whom mobiles are synonymous with Facebook, they’ll probably just buy it on...
