To the people who say that the nokia E6 is better. I'm really sorry...but i have to deny that. I am a die-hard nokia fan, but i have to say that this phone is better in most of the aspects. let's see:
1.The main thing, this is an android, that's a symbian, though the e6 offers more business functionality, symbian doesn't stand up against android, and with the sense skin on top of it, it blows symbian stragiht out of the water.
2The qwerty keyboard is significantly better. The F-button is a boon for social networking addicts, and let's face it, this phone was made for them.
3.though the screen of the nokia E6 is better, it's smaller, and trust me, even half an inch's difference takes a huge toll on usability.
4.The camera on the nokia E6 may be 8mpx, but if you read the review, people will be better off sticking with the 5mpx mode, and the lack of autofocus is a real killer, because anything closer than 50 centimetres is blurry.
5.People say the design is horrible. In my opinion, the design is quite nice, it sticks out and looks wacky,unlike the boring candybars and business messengers out there.
In the end, the main difference is the people its aimed at. If i was a 40 year old man with business and work on my mind, i wouldn't be caught dead with this, similarly, if i was A 16 year old facebook addict, which i am, i'd die to get this, which co-incidentally i am. So it all boils down to what you'd use it for and i believe that the chacha trumps the nokia E6 in every issue except of-course in a meeting.
1st. you can't compare the chacha to the E6
the E6 is 2900LE in egypt but the chacha is 1800LE
so u can't compare 2 different types of phones
n also the E6 has an 8MPX camera but the chacha has a 5MPX camera , the last thing is the E6 shots HD videos
but the chacha only record's 640X480 videos
so it's un fare fo us to compare the chacha to the E6 cuz simply it's like comparing the iphone to the galaxy S II , u can't do that !!!!
2nd this phone's price is so good for it's options
u get a good battery,camera,video,qwerty keyboard n the most important thing is that u can play HD games on it which is great !!
i'll buy this phone ISA or i'll buy the pearl 9100
after ramadan or when i finish 1st term of school
I use this phone for almost one week.. everything is good. Internet fast . Good key pad ... And value for money .. in $ 450
Compare HTC cha cha with nokia E6.....E6 really kicks some serious u know what! better resolution, better battery life ,better camera,better 3G connectivity ......proper smartphone.price too not much different I guess
Hi when this handset will be launched in Pakistan and any price guesses for Pakistan?
does the cha cha have signal boost UMA?? or can u download it to the phone??
For the record, I don't even have a Facebook account and admit that the Facebook button is really just a gimmick. What's important about this device is not stated on the review here. It is that the full keyboard is probably the best of any other phone, it truly is a pleasure to use for a person like me who needs to be able to write lots of messages using proper grammar and punctuation.
Android 2.3 runs very quickly, I see no discernible difference between applications like Whatsapp and Skype compared to my old Desire which had a beefier processor and more memory. The only disappointment for me is that the camera is average, although what should I really expect for a £200 phone?
Like I said, if you hate typing on touchscreens and use the web a lot, then I am not aware of a better device out there.
Just to answer a few question from other readers.
1. The battery life of the ChaCha is decent, but nothing spectacular. I get 1.5 days out of it with wi-fi turned at all times and fairly heavy usage. Better than a HTC Desire or iPhone, but not by much.
2. With regards to the running of applications on internal memory. I have actually installed several apps (Whatsapp for one) to the external memory card and am running them fine.
I love the phone and would wholeheartedly recommend it. It trounces any of the Blackberry and Nokia models in terms of being able to write out text on the generously apportioned full key pad. The screen isn't exactly big, but for me, the most important aspect for a device is that it's quick for me open a browser, put together properly written e-mail's and communicate rapidly.
this phone is available in KSA
so it must have arabic support !
however, every mobile phone the meddle-east n africa has arabic support sometimes francais,Duch but always arabic n english
it's a nice phone,nice price,nice brand and a nice screen ! bec. the resolution is high u can play HD games which is really cool in a med-price phone
it costs like 1800LE=1300SR
but i prefer the salsa more than the chacha
u can compare phones on jawal123.com,gsmarena.com,mymobimobi
