I am really excited about trying this phone and can't wait for gsmarena full review. I hate touch screen phones, they are just not for me! But unfortunately all good smartphones are usually touchscreens and i thought that this is just a thing I will have to deal with in the future. But I was wrong! Looks like qwerty messengers are still popular and I am really surprised that HTC released one. I tried some qwerty sliders like HTC desire Z and nokia C6, but sliding mechanism is not very reliable and not really comfortable, also I was really disapointed with symbian touch IOS on C6, it is so clunky and full of bugs! I don't use facebook a lot on the phone, mostly at home on a pc, but I am interested in this phone because of it is the only full qwerty bar with android 2.3 on the market. Correct if I am wrong. Second phone I am interested in is Nokia E6, but I am a little bit sceptical about the Symbian Anna update, but it has a better camera and a better battery life, and that is a big plus for me! I really hope that there will be some sort of a test like E6 vs ChaCha on gsmarena, that would help me to decide what device suits me best! Blackberry Bold touch 9900 seems to be a very interesting device with good specs, maybe even better than E6 and ChaCha, but since I am from Estonia and currently live in Denmark, it is not available in any of those countries and I am not a big fan of cracking phones either, so this is not an option for me. Samsung Galaxy Pro B7510 looks as an outsider when compared to the specs of Chacha and E6, but it might be good option as a low-budget alternative. i know motorola has some decent messengers also available but I am not sure if they are available anywhere in Europe at all, and same about Acer beTouch E210. So, I am looking forward about news on E6 and Chacha, and ofchourle full phone reviews

jb82, 10 Jun 2011Does this require facebook ? I hate facebook! Also can you change the F key to something else?face book is the compulsary so u can not hate this okkk
The backlight of the keypad turns automatically on/off. Can not be adjusted or turned on all the time. So if the sensor thinks there is enough light, you cannot see anything in some circumstances. After 1 day I got rid of it again.

king, 09 Jun 2011Hi im kings were did u buy the mobile wat is the priceAre you using 2G or 3G mode? I mean that you wrote that the batterylife is not good. 2G mode should have much more usage time than 3G. You can still use wifi in 2G mode.

Hey guys, I just bought the Htc ChaCha phone yesterday and here is my review of it.
-Excellent qwerty keypad, very comfortable when texting
-Very good music quality, crisp and clear
-800 Mhz processor clock speed with 512mb ram
-Multi touch input method with a reasonably good 2.6 TFT touch screen, auto-rotate and gorilla glass display
-Android OS v2.3 Gingerbread (latest operating system)
-Good 5 MP camera with LED flash and face detection
-Very fast bluetooth connection with bluetooth v3.0
-The social integration on the phone is excellent
-Battery life is a huge disappointment, very poor battery performance especially with wi-fi on.
-The touch screen could have been better, the display is not very touch sensitive
-Auto rotate feature is arguably slower when compared to recent Htc devices
-Android is not as user friendly as Symbian or Windows mobile.
Overall I would rate this phone 8.5 out of 10, hope my review helped you guys decide. Cheers #Nealz
