HTC Chacha (Black) Price: Rs.12499

The HTC ChaCha is a touch and type phone that combines a 2.6-inch capacitive touchscreen and a QWERTY keypad. Running on the Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) operating system, the phone is powered by 800 MHz Snapdragon processor and 512 MB of RAM to run all your applications smoothly.

This social media oriented Android phone also boasts of the proprietary user interface, the HTC Sense, which brings with it features such as flip to silence, customizable homescreen and all your friends' updates on Facebook and Twitter via Friend Stream.

The HTC ChaCha is loaded with a 5 megapixel camera with LED flash and auto focus features. You can also record videos using the phone camera at 30 fps. A front facing VGA camera is also fitted on the device through which you can video chat.

Facebook on ChaCha

HTC has specially packaged the ChaCha phone for all those of you bitten by the Facebook bug. Sharing your photos or the places you visit has never been easier than with the ChaCha in your palms, as it comes with a dedicated Facebook button that is located just below the keypad. You can share a photo or a link on Facebook just by pressing this button. If you want to share the information of the places you visit then you can hold the dedicated Facebook button for some time to start start the Facebook Places function. This social media phone lets you keep your friends closer round the clock. And the list of Facebook-focused services on ChaCha doesn't just end with a dedicated button.

The ChaCha is loaded with a variety of Facebook widgets. There is a clock on this handset that provides you with all the Facebook updates as a ticker. The Calendar widget on the phone ensures you remember to wish your friends on their birthdays.

Design

The design of the HTC ChaCha benefits those who text heavily as it comes with a well-spaced out QWERTY keypad. The buttons are big enough for you to easily click and type. The back of the ChaCha is slightly bent that gives a better viewing angle as well as better grip for typing. Additionally, the phone remains scratch-free even if placed face-down.

The capacitive touchscreen of the phone, with a resolution of 480 x 320 pixels, makes for ideal viewing of websites. In between the screen and keypad, lays a row of standard Android function buttons of home, menu, back and search. On the top edge of the ChaCha are located the power/lock button and headphone jack. The volume rocker and a microUSB port are housed on the left edge of the device. The phone packs in the usual bunch of sensors including accelerometer, digital compass, proximity sensor and ambient light sensor.

The HTC ChaCha is compatible with microSD 2.0 cards. You can use the same to increase the memory of the ChaCha up to 32 GB. The ROM installed on the phone is of 512 MB. The social networking phone uses a standard lithium-ion battery of 1250 mAh capacity. The battery serves a talk time of 4 hours and standby time of 120 hours.

Connectivity and Features

The internal GPS antenna and Google Maps present on this device let you track your directions. The Document viewer and editor lets you create and edit Word, Excel and PowerPoint files. The handset also has access to Android Market from where you can download applications of your choice.

Very Good Phone

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.

Very nice phone bugged by Android Dialer batter issue

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.

HTC Chacha battery issue.

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

Dear all,
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.:(

Good and Very Capable Phone with Ultra Poor Battery...

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.

We wants it

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.

Solidly built phone. Keypad that makes typing a joy.

I've been searching for an Android phone with a hardware keypad for a while. Not finding something that I liked prevented me from making the jump to Android, until I got the HTC ChaCha. First thing to notice is how the phone is built, it feels solid and well built and not flimsy or fragile. The user interface is snappy (especially compared to my ultra slow previous Nokia E50) and surprisingly smooth. The screen is a little small but is very sharp, so text is readable although a bit small. The best part about this phone is of course, the keypad. The keys are well spaced (unlike other qwerty phones which are more crammed) and have a very good tactile feel, its a joy to use. You will get used to typing very fast very soon on this keypad, especially with the dedicated buttons for period, comma, and question mark. Other things work as expected including data connectivity and audio. Now coming to the battery life, it seemed to last about 20 hours as soon as I bought the phone, but it seems to be improving after a few charge-discharge cycles. Its still in the ballpark of one day on a charge. Some indications are that this may be caused by a software bug, but it waits to be seen if an update will improve battery life.

All-in-all, a great, handy little phone (as opposed to the trend of larger and larger slab-like full touch phones) Speedy UI. A very practical keypad (this is what I love). Better battery life would have made this phone a small form-factor 5-star winner.

One of the best social networking device!

It's a great phone if you are someone who uses Facebook and Twitter a lot. The batter is definitely a downside. I don't think there is a Dialer "bug" on this phone. The Dialer just does a lot of work syncing all of your contacts' social networking info. It is working all the time in the background. The battery lasted 9 hrs on the first day. It improved to having to charge once every night (roughly 16 hrs battery time) from the second day onwards. I suggest you charge the phone for the first few days overnight with the phone switched off. I just believe it helps the battery get a little better if anything.

You will need Juice Defender app to help you get the best out of the 1250 mAh battery.

Not a great phone if you are looking to play games on it. Install every form of social networking app including Skype, Whatsapp and the likes and it is worth every rupee you spend on it.

Download Adobe and you could read pdf books on this too, although you'll find the screen space quite tight and just enough. The display is the best thing on the ChaCha and the thing I love most about this phone. The Gorilla Glass relieves you of all worries about keys and phone in the same pocket. No screen guard, no scratches.

I found the internal memory sufficient. After installing the apps I've mentioned above, I have got 51MB left. Which is not a lot, but works fine for me.

Be sure to get 3G data pack on. That's an additional expense you should make room for if you want to make full use of the device.

The QWERTY keypad is perhaps the best ever. Nokia X2 01 has one of the best QWERTY keypads of all QWERTY phones. This one is better than that!

The Gingerbread is great with seamless touch experience and overall a great phone to carry with you and be on the grid all the time. I give it 4 stars, because it is a great phone in everything it promises to be, except for the battery. But the battery will only get better as you use it along further charging cycles.

Good luck :)

Excellent Mobile for people who prefer hard keypad for typing

I think every Android vendor should come up with QWERTY models because there are a good number of people out there who prefer QWERTY keypad over touch keypad.

There are only two option for this group of people
1) BBs and all of us know they suck with very few customization options available in them and limiting the user to go for exclusive BB plans, etc.
2) QWERTY smartphones by all the other "once upon a time" famous players like Nokia with their "not up to the mark" OS.

Very less number of apps on their app stores is is also an issue with both the above.

The only solution would be to go for android or iPhone and iPhone is definitely out of scope because of lack of hard keyboard and the price. So, the only option is android with keypad.

Coming to HTC Chacha, it has more than every feature that an average smart phone user would vouch for. Following are my reasons for choosing this phone.
1) The display - 2.6" screen with 480x320 resolution is amazing. First look at the phone, I thought it would be 320x240.
2) Processor - 800 MHz processor at this price is a very good deal
3) RAM - 512 MB RAM to support all the other specs is good enough
4) Battery - 1250mAh as compared to 1200mAh that all the other phones in this range have. It could've been even better though.
5) Secondary Camera - Frankly speaking, I was surprised to see a secondary cam in this considering the fact that this is not a high end model.
6) Keypad - I love the tactile feedback while typing, be it on phone or a system keyboard. And in this phone, the keys are placed more spaciously making it even easier to type than most of the Nokia QWERTYs out there.
7) Sense UI - I played with almost all the droid phones out there and without any second thought I can say for sure that HTC provides the most elegant and easy to use UI among all the others. Samsung's UI is the most user unfriendly UI I have ever seen. And in this phone, HTC made the UI even more neat. The cool white and blue colors that they used in all the basic apps is a visual feast. I wonder why most of the droid phones have dull greyish black UI.
8) Updates - HTC gives updates like no other droid vendor. Believe me, it gives updates for even discontinued models. No other droid vendor gives updates for phones in this price range. Samsung gives updates for only high end models like the S2, Note, etc. and even they will be very buggy.
9) Price - It initially started off with 15k which was a bit on the higher side but now, at 11.5k with all these power packed features, it is the best deal you can ever get.
10) Design - The design is very neat and clean with a small bent in the middle. It definitely looks great in any body's hands.

Initial impressions

I have received this phone 2 days back, and I have no big complaints. The phone looks good and performs well. The problem with most HTC devices I am told, is low battery life. For me, the battery life is fine -- but then, I don't use the internet or the multimedia too much -- just casually to check my e-mail once in a while. Also, I am told that after about 3-4 full charge cycles, the battery life would improve. I cannot verify this as of now, but if that happens, it would be awesome.

For normal calling, I am able to easily get 1.5 days out of the phone. But yes, Bluetooth and WiFi usage drain the battery like crazy. Trying to transfer contacts to the phone from an old Nokia C2 drained of half the charge in 2 hours. And I have not yet figured out how to transfer the Calendar, notest etc. -- HTC can transfer data from later models of Nokia, but not from the C2.

The UI never lags - On my old Galaxy Tab, the UI hangs from time to time. But it is easier to use -- I am able to turn on various connectivity features like WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS etc. from the notification bar on the top -- but in the HTC sense, I need to go into the settings to do that -- or use a separate widget.

I also miss a few features from my Nokia -- timed profile, speed dial, key based phone unlock. Need to see if some Android apps for this are available.

Call clarity is really good. So I guess music must also be fine. The bundled earphones are a real charm.

I am careful not to install too many apps on this phone. Flipkart shipped free of cost an 8GB micro SD card, so I hope the low memory on the phone is not taxed too much.

Also, one major problem I am facing is that there are not as many accessories available as for other phones -- like an affordable belt pouch -- I think this is because of the curved shape of the phone. I am wondering if I should try using a blackberry belt clip for this.

Overall, I am happy about buying this phone. At 11,499, it does feel like a very good buy.

Attractive package, but not a very SMART phone!

Summary:
Promises a lot but delivers little! Be ready to live with a number of compromises. A good android QWERTY smartfone with touch, 2x camera, business and social features, and true extendable memory is still a mirage!

The Good:
-----------
1. Screen -legibility, touch response, scratch-proof (no need to use screen protector)
2. Keyboard - probably the best keyboard in this segment, you can type without errors for long.
3. Looks - neat, slim, professional!
4. various sensors for auto operation (e.g screen brightness, proximity, turn the phone to activate speaker etc)
5. Fits and weighs well in your hand, can operate with one hand.

The so-so:
------------
1. Camera - great in daylight, good flash for indoors. but overall is not as good as samsung/sony.
2. Build quality - feels sturdy, but the shell is starting to show scratches.

The UGLY:
-----------
1. Battery last for less than a day for normal usage expected of this phone (1-2hr of voice, business/personal emails, limited browsing). Charge twice a day and use juice-defender!
2. Internal memory: The phone has only 150MB of internal memory. This will be occupied by all standard Apps (Email, Facebook, Google Maps, Browser, Contacts, HTC sense etc) - which cannot be moved to SD card. New apps downloads can be installed in the SD card. The 150MB limit is reached very quickly (e.g -2 email accounts, facebook, G.maps update, contacts sync, HTC apps, Google store etc). The phone restarts 1-2times a day due to low memory. This limitation makes you have to prioritze the apps you need. Hence, I have deleted settings for facebook, twitter, HTC likes/hub etc from the phone to save memory. (note that skype and whatsap can be installed on the SD card, but it still consumes some internal memory). You can either be Social or Business, but not both!!
3. HTC's non-Sense - while being a well put together UI, the "pull ring" is more nuisance value! It just adds an extra step into the unlock sequence. The ring screen cannot be removed, unless you hack the phone and void the warranty. Due to this, you will always need to use the touch screen to unlock the phone. I wonder why we cannot use the keys alone in a QWERTY phone.
4. Touch screen issues: This is a BIG problem - if the phone is low on memory or CPU is blocked, the touch screen will not respond and you cannot UNLOCK the screen! you have no other alternative than removing the battery to restart the phone and praying the device recovers.
5. HTC service is a dud: The phone gave up within 60 days. It was eventually repaired by HTC, but it took me 4 visits to Service Center. Sample this ...they have wrong SC address on the website; and the SC doesnt accept phone because their "Servers are down"; The helpline guys told me to perform a "hard-reset" on the phone to resolve the internal memory limitation .. WHAT! Each visit to the SC consumes a lot of your precious time and $$$ in petrol! That adds up to a big bill eventually!!
6. In call voice volume is very poor in normal and speakerphone modes - you can barely hear the opposite party! However, the volume is good while using headphones and bluetooth
7. The front camera doesnt work for Skype video calls!!! There are alternative programs, but how many of your friends use those?

I bought this phone in July 2012 and the screen stopped responding within 60 days. Sent it to HTC service centre and they replaced the motherboard. They also added scratches on the body. I am praying the problem does not re-occur, but the touch screen is already iffy! I never had to repair my Samsung's or Nokia's before. Honestly, I think HTC's quality is suspect! Appears like they started out building a great phone, and then decided to release a "minimum viable product"! Consider this:
1. Low internal memory for any practical use of the features offered
2. The case heats up while talking or browsing.
3. HTC Sense forces itself on you!

I am waiting for the warranty to expire before I hack this phone, remove the bloatware and move the large apps to SD card. Hopefully the hardware will last until then.
