The HTC Status started life as the HTC ChaCha, and while we may lament the changing of the name at least here in the United States, the new name reflects much more accurately what the phone is about. With Facebook integration running through out every corner of the device, and a dedicated button on the lip for easy access, this phone does not conceal its love of the popular social network. Now, if only the button worked as promised.
There’s a lot to like with the Status, but some significant detractors also play against it. We even went so far as to theorize last month that the HTC Status could make a decent business phone, and now it’s time to put that to the test.
While the social integration is nice, and there are some definite upsides to the handset, does it actually pass muster as a decent phone? Watch the video to find out our final conclusion.
