A Facebook phone.
Can not see that going down too well these days.
Imagine being directly connected to The Zucker direct.
Some of your contacts might be upset.
It's like asking yourself why people buy samsung A series phones when the s20 ultra is so great. Totally different price ranges, bro. I did have a ChaCha and loved it at the time, not necessarily for the social media features.
Sony Ericsson also used a Facebook ish type of skin over for the Xperia X10. Timescape. Great idea but was poorly executed and killed the phones resources....
I was once a proud owner of HTC Salsa.
Haha,this was an article filled with terrible phones.I remember owning a Samsung Galaxy S2 i9100 when the HTC ChaCha arrived,I could not believe anyone would buy any of these social media phones when great phones like iPhone 4,Galaxy S2,Htc sensation etc...were around.
loved my cha cha
Never had any problems with Facebook. But Instagram is big headache. It doesn't let me to follow people anymore. And so many limits. Really annoying.
I used the ChaCha back in the day. I didn't care about FB, but was interested in the hardware keyboard, which was starting to become rare in those days. It was a decent phone overall. The keyboard in particular was good to type on.
These days you can't find any new phone with a hardware keyboard. Unfortunate.
cha cha was such a beautiful device 😍
Matt, 20 Dec 2020Nokia actually released some phones with Facebook dedicated button and WhatsApp dedicated butt... moreIndeed. I did a similar article on the Nokia Asha phones a few years ago:
I'm glad these failed, I like to think more people caught on and in less than a decade, here we are... the social network is falling flat.
htc chacha design and other htc phones during that time were incredible
it's a shame we came to an era where all phones have to look the same
it's not the companies though, it's the people that refuse anything that is different looking anyway
from all these nostalgia, what I really miss is Dexter on the contact
Oh god, I had the Chacha. I really hated that phone! :D
Anonymous, 20 Dec 2020I stopped using Facebook in 2010. I'd be the last person to buy a Facebook phone, lol. I stop using it in 2012 Facebook is a stain on humanity
xperia miro was also a phone made for social media, bit on the software side... timescape, embedded social media contacts to local contacts, contact photos synched to social media display pictures... the led strip lights for social media notifications, out of the box not for ordinary notifications like calls and texts...
Although I liked the HTC ChaCha I wouldn't get this just because of Facebook.

I get it now. They attempted this so they could see every bit of user interaction outside of facebook. Sneaky sneaky.
Nokia actually released some phones with Facebook dedicated button and WhatsApp dedicated button. I think these phones were part of the Nokia Asha family.
