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 Status review


For many smartphone users, a quality keyboard is the only feature that truly matters. These passionate devotees will proudly live and die with their

Excellent keyboard ; Facebook integration is fun and useful ; Reasonable price

Sense is buggy and lacks polish ; Many third-party apps won't display properly ; Disappointing battery life

While the Status can be fun and offers a quality keyboard, the software makes typing a pain. What's more, several apps don't display correctly on that tiny screen.

HTC Status (AT&T)


The Android-based HTC Status, America's first "Facebook phone," opens up a big social world through too tiny a window.

Beautiful hardware. Terrific keyboard. Dedicated Facebook button makes accessing the world's most-popular social network easy.

Slow. Tiny, cramped screen. Incompatible with many third-party apps. Difficult battery cover.

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

HTC ChaCha Review


A touchscreen with a QWERTY keypad � the HTC ChaCha certainly tries to cover all possible angles, but does the inclusion of multiple input methods guarantee a good device? A good looking and nice phone for an Android lover looking for a good keypad,...

Excellent QWERTY keypad and angled design makes typing more comfortable, Well built

Battery life is a disappointment, Facebook button doesn�t do much

HTC ChaCha Reviewed: QMD for Facebook Fans


This is a fairly powerful quick messaging device from HTC that runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Designed for Facebook addicts it has a full QWERTY keyboard beneath a small landscape screen much like a BlackBerry. Get the full details as we take it for...

HTC Status Review: Phone for Facebook Fans


The HTC Status is an Android smartphone with a focus on social networking. We take a look to see how it holds up. Should the Status be the choice of Facebook addicts everywhere?

Good keyboard ; Robust Facebook integration

Extremely small screen
