HTC Status


Also known as the Facebook phone, the HTC Status lets you quickly post to your account, but you'll have to put up with a tiny screen.

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....

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 (white, AT&T)


The HTC Status is the country's first-ever "Facebook phone." Designed in collaboration with Facebook, the Status was first introduced at Mobile World Congress in the form of the HTC ChaCha. Its biggest selling point is a dedicated Facebook button that...

The HTC Status is a well-made phone with a fantastic QWERTY keyboard and a slight bend to the body that makes texting that much easier. The Facebook button works as advertised, and it could be a great asset to anyone who's a Facebook fanatic

The HTC Status has a tiny screen, with hard-to-read text and tedious scrolling. It also has an odd landscape-mode screen as a default, which makes portrait-only apps rather problematic to use

The HTC Status offers stellar hardware and a fantastic Facebook experience, but it's hampered by a tiny landscape-oriented screen.

HTC Status (AT&T)


The four-row keypad is almost exactly as big as the 2.6-inch touch-screen LCD, and has huge, oval plastic buttons with a very satisfying click. There's no dedicated number row, but there are dedicated cursor keys, and of course that Facebook button.

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

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

HTC Status Review


Have you updated your Facebook status recently? Now you don't have an excuse with the new HTC Status, which is available from AT&T. The Status is nearly an exact duplicate of the HTC ChaCha that is sold overseas, as both come with similar hardware, and...

The HTC Status is America's first phone with a dedicated Facebook button. While the service (allegedly) created by Mark Zuckerberg is without a doubt the most

HTC Status Review by Sydney


Currently, there are over 750 million active users on Facebook and more than 250 million of those users access Facebook from their mobile device. For you 250+ million users, HTC and AT&T have just the phone for you, the HTC Status, a.k.a. The Facebook...

Excellent keyboard; Facebook button is very handy; customized version of HTC Sense works very well on the small display; good build quality; decent battery life

Inconsistent 3G data speeds; poor camera quality; some apps only work in portrait mode, making it uncomfortable to use those apps

The Status may be a mid-range Android smartphone, but in a lot of ways, it doesn't act like one. HTC's customizations for the small display are excellent, the keyboard is one of the best I've used, and the dedicated Facebook button is extremely easy...

HTC Status Review: Phone for Facebook Fans


The Status is a very unusual design for an Android smartphone. For one thing, it features a single-piece keyboard design, which is featured on only a handful of other units like the Motorola XPRT, Droid Pro, and Samsung Replenish. But the Status goes...

Good keyboard ; Robust Facebook integration

Extremely small screen

An entry-level phone well-suited for teenagers and young adults who live on text messaging and Facebook

Don't be fooled by the nice design, the phone is good for about 2 days and then the problems start to happen.

Nicely spaced Keyboard

Resets, Never any memory, no good apps, to use instagram you have to turn the phone
