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.

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 f...

Really happy with this phone

My requirements were quite clear, Android, Qwerty and No Micromax/Spice(based on previous experience). There was not much choice with these specs, but really happy with this phone. Touch is very smooth, keys are good, well spaced. People looking for big screens should not go for this. Android and HTC sense does not really require my review as everyone knows what they are all about.

If i have to be really critical i'd say battery could be an issue for some people. It isn't that bad, as it wor...

Please read once before buying

I bought this phone (not from flipkart) after supposedly doing alot of research and reading a lot of reviews. Prima facie,it seems like a good phone for the physical qwerty keyboard fans. It has a beautiful qwerty keyboard with a lot of space betweenthe keys. This makes typing a hell of an easier job. Then, it comes with Android, however this one is a little different than thenormal android 2.3. I guess that is done to suit the landscape version and layout of the phone. It annoyed me that the...

Fell in love with this phone when i first saw it.... but....

My review:

Looks, design, feel - 5 stars (looks much better than all those similar looking devices that we find in the market now)

Facebook button - 4.5 stars (very helpful for quick fb posts and updates)

UI and touch - 4 stars (very smooth and clean)

Qwerty keypad - 4 stars (buttons are crisp, it's a joy to type)

Screen size - 2.5 stars (they could have made it slightly bigger, not for someone who wants to play games or watch videos)

Battery -2 stars (gets over very quickly when using ...

htc chacha

i buy htc chacha last week. screen touch functioality is so good,but the 5 megapixel camera clearity is very bad. even samsung's 2 megapixel camera's clearity is very clear then it.
one more bad experience with it is if you connect it with PC then with in half hour the phone become so hot so you cannot touch it to ear upto next 15 mins. to make or receive a call.
the good thing is only it gives you a royal look.
