Short Review of HTC Salsa

HTC Salsa, HTC, Salsa, Cell phone, Mobile Phone
At first glance, it looks like a HTC Wildfire S having a facebook button. But it is much more than that. Check out the develop quality. The physique is metallic and strong, and also the colour is really a kind of metallic-looking grey/blue/lilac. It is an Android phone that looks distinctive, and that's certainly a good thing.

What concerning the facebook button? The blue button tends to draw the eye. It whispers seductively, "press me". So you push the button and suddenly you're sharing every thing together with your friends. A single press and you are sharing pictures, videos and status updates. You're checking in with Places. You are telling everyone what music you're listening to. You're watching your friends' status updates, your chatting continuously, your data usage is going via the roof, but you just can't stop. Simply because that is the appeal from the Salsa - total facebook immersion. Due to the small blue button.

But then again, the Salsa is not a cheap phone. It's more expensive than mid-range, but does a good metallic case along with a big blue button justify the dosh? We don't think so. The Salsa does have plenty of great features - in addition to the build high quality, there is a moderately quick 800MHz processor humming away inside and a huge 1520mAh battery that will energy your social networking till the sun goes down, after which a bit longer.

There's a VGA front camera for video chatting, and also the delicious HTC Sense user interface with Android 2.3 Gingerbread. But there are plenty of decidedly mid-range functions right here too. We cannot ignore the relatively small 3.4 inch screen. And it is only a TFT screen, which doesn't cut it amongst the large boys of the Android globe, and also the resolution is really a lowly 320 x 480 pixels. There's only 512MB of onboard memory, that is going to prove restrictive even when you buy a microSD memory card.

So, if facebook is the feature which you use most on your mobile, you may find the HTC Salsa to become your ideal phone, even though you need to also take a look at the HTC ChaCha. But when the blue button is something you'd use only occasionally, or hardly at all, you'd be much better off selecting one of the other Android phones in this price bracket, such as the HTC Desire S, Samsung Galaxy S or Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo. Or you can save some pennies and downgrade to the HTC Wildfire S.
