HTC Salsa (Icon Blue)

Key Features

  • Android v2.3 (Gingerbread) OS
  • 3.4-inch Capacitive Touchscreen
  • 5 MP Primary Camera
  • 0.3 MP Secondary Camera
  • 800 MHz Processor
  • Facebook Button
  • Expandable Storage Capacity of 32 GB
The HTC Salsa is a social-networking focused phone running Android 2.3 Gingerbread. A dedicated Facebook button on the Salsa allows users to share updates/pictures/videos with just one click. The Salsa sports a 3.4 inch TFT capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 480 x 320 pixels.

HTC's Sense UI further improves the impressive Gingerbread smartphone experience. The UI features a unique lock screen that lets you jump directly to a selected set of shortcuts. A 800 MHz processor powers the HTC Salsa, complementing the processor is 512 MB of RAM.

The HTC Salsa comes with a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash and can record standard definition videos. There is also a front facing VGA camera for making video calls. Other camera features include Geotagging and Face Detect.

Design

The Salsa sports HTC's signature aluminum chassis with soft touch plastic trims on either ends. At 120 g, the Salsa is one of the lightest Android smartphones in the market. The rounded edges and slight lip near the mouthpiece renders the Salsa with a more natural hand grip.

Physical buttons on the HTC Salsa include a power button, volume rockers, a camera shutter and the back-lit Facebook Button. The Salsa features an accelerometer, ambient light sensor and proximity sensor.

Battery and Storage

The 1,520 mAh Li-Ion power cell allows the Salsa to go unplugged for much longer than normal Android smartphones. The HTC mobile supports 9 hrs of 2G & 8 hrs of 3G talk time. The Salsa comes with 512 MB internal memory which can be expanded up to 32 GB via microSD cards.

Connectivity and Features

The Salsa supports 3G, Wi-Fi, A-GPS and Bluetooth v3.0 connectivity and syncs via a micro USB port. A unique Facebook clock on the Salsa features a stream of updates acting as the ticker. Apart from the usual HTC Sense widgets like Calendar and Friend Stream, the Salsa is preloaded with a Facebook Chat widget.

When you click a photo on the HTC Salsa, the Facebook button glows as a reminder that it can be uploaded to Facebook. A single tap is all that is required for the image to be uploaded to your Facebook album. A similar action can share links, videos and even the song you are listening to on the Salsa's music app.

When the Facebook Button is held down for more than three seconds, the phone opens the Facebook Places mode, that allows the user to check in their current location. Other features in the Salsa include Wi-Fi tethering, Document viewer and notification bar access to wireless radios.

Great Phone at 15000 bucks.

I researched a week before buying this phone on d net.. Nd dis was d best android phone i found around 15000.
The salsa comes with latest android 2.3.3 which is gr8 nd it also has HTC sense 3.0 which is d same as in htc sensation and it is outstanding.
The camera clarity is gr8 nd d phone looks nd feels gr8.
The downside to this phone is d internal memory which is relatively low.
Also i bought dis phone 7-8 days ago nd I havent found d need to use d facebook button even once.
So overall gr8 phone at a gr8 15000 price

First Android

I have bought this phone from Flipcart a week ago. Needless to say, the Flipcart delivered it right, like usual.
As far as my usage of mobiles, there has been so many brands and models that I have tried, and was satisfied with my E71 till I bought HTC Salsa. Being my first Android phone, it was the right decision to buy from Flipcart; for the best lowest price in Indian market and shipment.
Apart from all those nice features that any Android phone has over other operating systems, what I liked the most is the ability to customize the screens. You can add (almost) anything that you desire...

Apart from all those nice features that any Android phone has over other operating systems, what I liked the most is the ability to customize the screens. You can add (almost) anything that you desire on to your screen???whether it is weather, stocks, news, favorite picture in a frame, clock(s), and so on.
Another good feature is HTC Salsa is the only phone that has got a front camera (for video calls) in its class. The next option for front camera is Samsung Galaxy for which you will have to pay INR 4000-5000 more.
Internal memory is moderately low. You need to always move the installed software (app.) to the SD card to free up the internal memory. I say memory is low because with the access to Android Market???it's so tempting to install apps from there and try out; you feel everything out there is for you.
I wish Android will do something about the usability of Contacts; at this point I would say it is not that easy to navigate. At the minimal you need to tap 4 to 5 times to call a contact???though, alternatively you can add widgets and customize based on your need. One another feature I wish Android could add is to lock widgets that you have placed on a particular screen. So you don???t remove a widget by mistake.
Overall I am happy HTC Salsa user, and would give 99% of satisfaction. 1% goes off for its low internal memory.

Good phone except battery backup!

I ordered this phone from flipkart and i got it within a week.. Thanks to flipkart.. Now about the phone, Its great phone in its range, but there are few drawbacks.. Internal memory is given as 512MB, but the memory available is just 150MB.. rest is used for system softwares(may be OS and other stuff) and the battery backup is not good, morning if i charge to full, by evening 6 it will be empty.. battery really sucks! If battery becomes low, even touchscreen becomes irresponsive sometimes...Other than this i'm happy with my first android phone..

Good Phone but low on internal memory

This is a good phone, touch is quite sensitive. Only flip side is that it is low on internal memory, which limits on how many applications you can install on this phone. Even if you put high capacity memory card (like 16 GB), it can only be used to store data like songs, photos & videos etc.... (View complete review)
