HTC Salsa review: "Like" it or not

15 July 2011
It takes two to tango, HTC seem to think. The HTC Salsa joins the ChaCha in a bid to treat young Android users to as much Facebook as they can handle. The little blue button makes an appearance again, this time in a more familiar context. While the...

I am using this phone since last 1.5 years:

1.Screen secsitivity and touch response is excellent
2.Hardly the phone hangs
3.Fast access to applications
4. Good look and feel
5.Robust( I accidently dropped it from my hand 3-4 times and no performance issue)

1.Low internal memory issue if you install a few APK.
2. Facebook chat issue
3.Issue with configuring email accounts other than Gmail
4.Issue of HTC sync operation in USB debug mode, it worked for me only once.
5.Memory card cometimes do not fixed into the slot and comes out, and no hot swap option.

              I think this phone very good specification,very fast browser,camera is good but not very good...the audio good,but i dissapointed about the f button its annoying for the smartphone,because social networking isnt the main needs for android user i think. The most i like from this phone is very fast browser.

                FACEBOOK BUTTON
                The worst thing about Salsa and Cha Cha is the Facebook button. HTC is giving more importnce to these.We cannot say how long those social netwrk sites r gonna to be popular. Like what has happnd to Orkut. One day the key will become useless and you wud want to hide this embarrassing button. This really keeps me out of these phones. Would have been good mid-range phones if that 'ANNOYING Button' was not there.

                        The camera quality is a disaster. Why did you say that it's "fine"? It's not about sharpness here but images turn out purple!
                        Also, the "like" button spoiled it all.

                          It doesnt support Video calling over 3G(Network Operator), it does support Video calling over internet using Skype or Tango applications, this is really huge setback even after having front cam.

                            I have just bought the salsa..I quite liked it compared to what I thought about all the HTC phones...
                            Apart from facebook, touch is awesome, browsing is faster..screen simulation while playing games like ANGRY BIRDS is no less than I PHONE..I would rather say that HTC SALSA gives competition to lot of other droid phones in the market...

                                  HTC salsa supports flash lite and not flash as told in the review. I could not log into youtube or dailymotions and watch videos. but i could watch videos only via youtube app and dailymotion app.

                                  Plz dont confuse us. i bought this mobile thinking it supports adobe flash 10.3 as told in ur review ... huh!

                                    The HTC Salsa comes with full Flash support? Does that mean you can play videos on any site or only youtube? Is this function is on galaxy ace? If it supports then it is a good mid range phn coz it has better ram, front cam, flash support which no other company's mid range phone has.
