For Those Who Dont Know What ChaCha means. Its mean "Uncle" . So "HTC Uncle" is best phone i think but price still litle bit higher.

Good phone, but here are somethings to be kept in mind.

1. camera is below avg when compared to other 5mp.
2. Video calling is not possible over 3G.
3. Battery backup is very low.
4. Otherwise a good phone.

I'm tempted to get one of these phones, but I'd like to know if it's possible to filter emails (and SMS) by keyword (whether it be in the subject or "From" line.

I have a Moto Q9h at present, and I can use the QWERTY keyboard to filter my SMSes and emails.

I've had it for a couple of weeks. Everything is good except the following three drawbacks,

1. Battery life sucks. One charge a day for sure. Sometimes I stay out late and the phone would die on me.
2. Back cover doesn't come off easily (i mean, it's so hard to get it right). It's getting on my nerves.
3. Switching back and forth between Chinese and English typing sometimes doesn't work for no reason. It is super annoying.
4. Camera really is not up to the task.

not that i like this phone so much. am getting this because i love the qwerty -smart -phone- kind of thing and besides its the only tolerable (atleast to me) screen resolution in its kind and the most updated OS in its kind. facebook button isn't really bad at all but not necessarily should be place down there. it could have been better if that button can be change to something more dedicated button to any app you like and mostly use. other than that, HTC made it good.

In my opinion
I think this is the best android phone in the market with v2.3, 800 MHz processor, 5 mp camera with touch and type option.
And the price is not too much. So this will be my first Android phone.
And guys u can compare this phone with other to see the results.

The dedicated “F” button ruins/cheapen the phone. I hope this is the last time we see dedicated “F”acebook button on a phone.

Finally a decent Qwerty Candybar Android Phone. But the "F" button ruins it :(

mobile phones nowadays are so dependent on facebook. facebook here, facebook there.. its ok to make facebook as an app, not a hardware part of the phone. It's so manipulating.

"We didn’t have a matching set of benchmarks for the HTC Desire Z, but the much better BenchmarkPi results (2059 for the ChaCha and 1282 for the Froyo-running Z) show that having newer architecture is more important than pure clock speed"

Please take notice that BenchmarkPI score is better when small. So 1282 is a better score than 2059.

Two months from now Facebook will be dead and Google+ will be the leading social network. Then this phone will have no use anymore.

Just kidding.

After the Desire, the Sensation, the Incredible, the Wildfire, etc., couldn't they have come up with a proper name? ChaCha...Geez, that sucks!
