HTC Salsa review: "Like" it or not

 

It takes two to tango, HTC seem to think. The HTC Salsa joins the ChaCha in a bid to treat young Android users to as much Facebook as they can handle. The little blue button makes an appearance again, this time in a more familiar context. While the...

Quad-band GSM and dual-band 3G support ; 7.2 Mbps HSDPA and 384 Kbps HSUPA ; 3.4" 16M-color capacitive TFT touchscreen of HVGA (320 x 480) resolution, Gorilla glass ; Android OS v2.3 Gingerbread with HTC Sense ; 800 MHz CPU, Adreno 205 GPU, Qualcomm...

Below-par screen sunlight legibility ; Camera not the best we’ve seen ; microSD slot under the battery cover, not (quite) hot-swappable ; No HD video recording

HTC Salsa Review

 

With more explicit Facebook integration than most, the HTC Salsa, along with its sibling, the HTC ChaCha, carries a physical Facebook button to tie whatever's going on in your hand to the world of Facebook. Sitting between the HTC Wildfire S and the...

HTC Salsa

 

The HTC Salsa has dual cameras, including a 5-megapixel colour camera with auto focus and LED flash and a VGA front-facing camera. The screen is larger than that of the HTC ChaCha, being a 3.4-inch, 480 x 320 resolution touch display.

Sleek design; Facebook integration; tabbed browsing; interactive lock-screen

Low resolution screen; poor camera; weak processor; no Flash support; unimpressive battery life

As a social network orientated phone, the HTC Salsa has got some things right, like having a dedicated Facebook button to make it easier to share your thoughts, links, pictures and videos with your friends.

Review of HTC's Facebook phone, the Salsa

 

The HTC Salsa is one of two new Facebook-oriented handsets from HTC. It combines typical Facebook integration with some extra functionality. The hardware Facebook key is something unseen on rival handsets, and offers a more user-friendly Facebook...

Deep Facebook integration, metal body, good battery life

Low screen resolution, slower 800MHz processor causes some lagging, poor camera
