HTC ChaCha Facebook Phone review


htc (1)

For all you Facebook aficionados who were looking for a good Facebook special device, the search is over, especially with HTC ChaCha Facebook phone generating some good reviews within a few days from launch. Though Vodafone has also come up with Vodafone Blue Facebook phone but as per its price tag, it has excluded some features, notably 3G and Wifi and this is where HTC ChaCha comes into the frame, along with other features that are better and bear enhanced specs.

I was a little dubious when HTC ChaCha came to the stage crashing those curtains. It was making all the news, especially because it was largely known as a Facebook phone which apparently created a zestful uproar within the Facebook cum smartphone community in India.

It was obviously a very well thought idea to make a Facebook special phone and HTC has executed the task with aplomb.

Let me just take you through some device specifications and I’m sure this would make you think for a change:

• Following the regular HTC model, ChaCha runs with a Google Android OS.

• Popular for its designated and special one-touch Facebook button, you can instantly share anything on the social site. Text messages, chatting, sharing photos and songs can be done within no time.

• It has a touch screen TFT display of 2.6 inches along with a resolution of 480×320 pixels.

• QWERTY keypad also attracts the Indian population for being fast and funky.

• The phone supports 3G and Wifi which puts it way ahead of the rest and justifies its price tag.

• Comes with dual camera, one of 5 megapixel with LED flash and the second in VGA enabling video calling on the phone.

• Has a processor of 800 MHz having 512 MB RAM.

• Includes Bluetooth 3.0 with A2DP and 3.5mm audio jack. Also has EDGE, GPRS, MicroUSB 2.0 and Ambient light with G and Proximity sensor. Also owns an inbuilt GPS antenna. All this makes up for a very good combination.
• As far as the battery goes, it has an excellent piece in 1250 mAh Li-ion which gives a talk time of 6.5 – 7.5 hours on 3G and 2G networks respectively. Even the standby time is equally good.
Now for the price which may appear a little high to some but given the features and class along with the ease of Facebook capability, HTC ChaCha Facebook phone clearly justifies its price label which is approx. Rs. 15,900/- . The HTC authorized resellers in your vicinity should be able to give you some better deals.
Also, TATA Docomo is presently taking care of its launch and advertising mostly and accordingly HTC ChaCha is being offered with some special packages and schemes.
All said and written, Now go for HTC ChaCha and you would go GaGa over Facebook..Enjoy!
