HTC ChaCha Review

  • 3.5 / 5
    • The good:
      handy design, excellent touch screen, lets you transfer files across apps effortlessly, excellent Android experience
    • The bad:
      small screen, annoying prerequisite for using the Facebook dedicated button
    In many ways the HTC ChaCha is like a Facebook phone as it boasts of remarkable integration with the popular social network. This integration is well thought of that even Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg was vocal in commending it during its launch. Its dedicated Facebook button at the bottom of HTC ChaCha is the handheld’s distinguishing feature. With a sleek design similar to HTC Hero, the mobile phone is slim and nicely built using white plastic and metal, making it a perfect company for people who are always on the go. With a size of 124g, it’s not that light but it’s manageable. The battery door however poses a problem when changing the battery, memory card and SIM card because it’s made of plastic material. On the other hand, the rubberized keys are commendable for messaging functions. The top side of the HTC ChaCha houses the 3.5mm headphone jack and the lock button. The bottom side on the other hand has the microphone hole. You will find the volume button and micro USB port at the left side. For snappers, the phone has two cameras found on both front and back. The 5MP camera at the back also comes with LED flash. Below the 2.6 inch and 480x320 resolution touchscreen, you will find four touchscreen controls -- Home, Menu, Back and Search -- and under these four buttons you will find the call and end buttons. It follows that with a smaller screen you have smaller icons. But rest assured, the touchscreen was highly improved because it seems to have no lag time. HTC ChaCha has something to say on the matters of Android experience as it runs on an excellent Gingerbread 2.3.3. It’s really a handy phone as it lets you transfer files across apps effortlessly. One annoying feature however involves the dedicated Facebook button. Upon clicking it, you have to post a status update and if you really don’t want to, you just have to go to the home screen and use the Facebook widget instead. You always have these two options when sharing things on Facebook -- either you share through the Facebook Android widget or Facebook for HTC.
