Frequently Bought Together With This Mobile
I had to choose between samsung galaxy pro, motorola charm and HTC chacha. Finally I decided to buy Chacha, because of it's great looks and speed processor. This phone didn't disappoint me, it has great features and HTC sense is awesome. This phones comes with 2 GB memory card, and a not-so-good ear phones, USB cable charger(as always HTC again impressed me with the charger, nice and cute). For those who are looking for a mobile with touch n type features, I would suggest this phone.
1) Features: overall nice features. you get what you could expect from a android 2.3.3 device. No shortcomings I see except the absence quick settings tab when you open the notification bar. Migration from my nokia e71 to ChaCha was easy and seamless using phone transfer wizard.
2) Performance: I am not a multimedia guy, so please dont expect me comment music movies and gaming performance of this phone. UI looks cool, polished and pro, as expected from an HTC device. There is absolutely no lag whatsoever when the phone is used.
3) Build: The phone looks premium but I guess its not sturdy. Most of the body is plastic. I have moved on from nokia e71 so this build quality would never impress me.
4) Calling is good: I used to get dropped calls from my e71 but this phone has really been nice so far. no dropped calls no noise in conversation.
5) Battery Backup: Dont curse the phone. There is a bug in Android dialler (Android issue id=17383) that is responsible for poor battery backup. once fixed I guess one should get about 36 hour battery support easily with moderate usage. For now I am using battery saver and task manager apps to drag battery life beyond a day. Thanks to google X-(. Just waiting for the dialer fix.
Overall a nice Value for money phone if battery bug gets fixed from google.
I found this on google forum plz let us know if it helped.
it has alreadt helped one user.
Solution for HTC CHAHCA android 2.3.3
My GF's phone had the same problem. I've been reading this thread and tried all of the proposed solutions (Blue-tooth on, Fast Reboot(99cent), sense options off, even did a Factory reset) but none worked. Somewhere, I can't recall where, I found an other work-around, and it looks like it works for us.
Since all other solutions didn't work for us, I'm not sure this one will for everybody.
Here it is:
- Download the App "Proximity Screen Off" (by Shailesh Soliwal).
- open it(see note below) and select the box for "Enable Device Admin" (give permission)
- "Disable in Landscape" selected
- "Enable during call only" NOT selected
- Both "Cover..." boxes are NOT selected
- "Disable Accidental Lock MUST be selected
- For "Timeout", we have 1 second.
- Press the "back" button on the phone
- Chose "Start Service"
Running 2 days now and battery usage is back to normal.
Good luck, hope it helps you all. If so, let Google know.
Hopefully with the next update it's solved.
Note: The app also comes with a nice "ScreenOff" shortcut you can place on the desktop. Not to be mistaken with the "ProximityScreenOff" app itself when opening :)
I'm keeping my fingers cross that this works till Google fixes this bug.:(
I bought this phone at the pre-release order stage itself through Flipkart. The phone was delivered promptly when released and ws received in excellent condition. The phone did not disappoint me at all and is indeed a fantastic Android Phone with amazing features. The android market and htc hub and htc sense are unique application and enable easy donwload of useful features...
The looks and feels good...however the battery performance is particularly bad and is infact totally disappointing... With bare minimum use the battery lasts for just about 12 hrs and incase u use the phone with auto sync features (which is what the phone is meant for) then..the battery gets drained in under 6-8 hrs...
Now that is truly and utterly disappointing...so heavy app users kindly check this out before hand..
Otherwise a well designed and good phone..And yes dear Flipkart people if u can find a marathon battery for this phone kindly let me know.
Guys this is the one we should go for.We cant fully rely on touch,so i was looking for a cool android touch and type phone and finally I got it.Well there was a question for wildfire S lovers whether to go for samsung glaxy ace or wildfire S and the only plus point for Galaxy was the processor speed.Now chacha is both touch and type and has good processor speed and the sexiest qwerty type phone ever. go for it.I am saving money to buy this one guys.
