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

Overall, though, the HTC ChaCha is the best attempt at a BlackBerry style Android device we’ve seen, the keyboard is very good, and the Facebook button inspired.

HTC ChaCha


You won't find a better phone for social networking but the smaller screen is a bit of a letdown.

Facebook fans have plenty to please them, with one-touch access for adding music, photos, updates, videos and webpages

Because so much is happening behind the scenes, the ChaCha had to be charged pretty regularly

HTC ChaCha


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

Facebook button counter intuitive

For its price, the ChaCha is packed full of features and accessed through a well thought out interface. Beyond its obvious Facebook centric approach, the ChaCha stands alone as an exceptionally attractive, well built and feature rich phone in its own...

HTC ChaCha review


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.

It’s rare that a device comes along that I am really interested in buying and the HTC ChaCha is one such device. HTC have set the benchmark for the front facing keyboard, Android phone and it will be a tough job for any other company to best the ChaCha.

HTC ChaCha review: A killer keyboard, at what cost?


We wouldn't say HTC has quite out BlackBerry'd RIM just yet

Solid keyboard and build

Screen the size of a postage stamp

HTC ChaCha review -


With one-touch access to post webpages, videos, music, photos and updates via the Facebook button, ?book fans are more than well catered for

With so much going on in the background we found the HTC ChaCha needed charging on a regular basis

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.
