HTC Cha Cha review: Hands-on

 

Following the HTC Salsa, the HTC Cha Cha joins the ranks of the Facebook phones

HTC ChaCha - Pocket-lint

 

A valiant attempt at touch-type Android, but a few niggling problems along the way make the ChaCha a lesser device than it's touchscreen sibling

Looks great, thoughtful reworking of HTC Sense, runs smoothly

Some keyboard issues, battery life is pretty poor, some regular apps leave you little space to see what you are doing

When thinking of the HTC ChaCha, it’s worth setting the “Facebook phone” elements to one side. The ChaCha is a more important device than just Facebook and if the button was removed, you’d still have all those features anyway.

HTC ChaCha review

 

Body of a Blackberry, mind of an Android. Can the new 'Facebook phone' poke above its weight?

Great Facebook integration ; Thought-out UI ; Typing is a dream ; Small battery with a long life and quick charge ; Responsive touchscreen

Screen sometimes feels too small ; Camera could be better ; Flash on websites doesn't work properly ; Chin makes the design look odd ; Awful name

Let's get one thing straight: the HTC ChaCha is not the Facebook phone. It's not manufactured by Facebook. But let's get another thing straight, too: the HTC ChaCha is the Facebook experience

HTC ChaCha

 

The HTC ChaCha is a messaging phone, with a dedicated Facebook button, that runs Android.

Stylish design ; Excellent keyboard ; Crisp screen ; Good Facebook integration

So-so battery life ; Landscape screen can feel cramped ; No Flash support

Below the keyboard on the right hand side there’s a dedicated button with the Facebook logo stamped on it. It looks a little bit odd perched out here on its own - almost like its addition was a bit of an afterthought. Nevertheless, Facebook is pretty...

HTC ChaCha review

 

The HTC ChaCha is a Google Android smartphone with a dedicated Facebook button.

The HTC ChaCha offers smart integration with Facebook and also possesses an excellent physical keyboard. Its small screen will frustrate users keen on mobile web browsing, but if you can live with these drawbacks, the ChaCha is very good value for money.

The ChaCha is perfect for heavy Facebook users, but the small screen makes it trickier to surf the rest of the web

HTC ChaCha Review: In Depth

 

The ChaCha is one of a pair of FaceBook-centric phones released by HTC, and differentiates itself from the HTC Salsa- and, in fact the majority of HTC's handset range- with a hard-key keyboard that…

HTC ChaCha

 

Beyond its obvious Facebook centric approach, the ChaCha is an exceptionally attractive, well built and feature rich phone in its own right.

Beautiful, solid design, Excellent keyboard, Screen that holds its own in direct sunlight

Facebook button counter intuitive

HTC ChaCha Review

 

What's in a name? HTC's two phones with Facebook access have dance-related monikers. There's the Salsa and this one, the ChaCha (you can just call it your Facebook phone)

In terms of Qwerty phones, it’s hard to beat BlackBerry for its keyboard and businesslike efficiency. The ChaCha comes close, but it’s aimed at a different market, adding the funkiness of Android, the class of HTC Sense and above all the convenience of...
