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.

HTC Salsa Android phone

 

The HTC Salsa is a well designed, mid-range Android smartphone that integrates superbly with Facebook. It combines a sturdy design, a full touchscreen...

Unibody aluminium design ; Great Facebook software integration ; Latest Android software

Facebook button not a deal breaker ; Poor sunlight legibility ; Vodafone exclusive

The HTC Salsa provides easy integration with the world's most popular social networking service, but its ultimate appeal will depend on how much you use Facebook on a daily basis. The Facebook key is not a deal breaker, but putting that aside, the...

They're calling it The Facebook Phone… Actually they're not, but they should
