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, holding the dedicated button for longer will 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 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.

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 l...

HTC has discontinued HTC CHaCHa because:

1)Poor battery life.
2)CPU Overheating during gaming.
3)Poor Camera

However if you can live with 5 hours battery life & can tolerate heating of your device , go for it.

HTC ChaCha

I was looking for a Qwerty phone with Android. Was glad when HTC ChaCha came into the market. It is an Excellent phone but with the worst battery. Battery exhausts within 4 or 5 hours. Battery lasts for the full day only when you do not use any applications and dont get many calls and messages. But then, why any one will buy this phone if they cannot use any of the features dreading that the battery will exhaust???? Regretting having bought 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...
