SANS - Survey on application security programs

Home from home

There are up to seven home screens and you can get all the usual decorations, including FriendStream and HTC’s lovely weather widget, but all look a little cramped. Some apps don’t even try to fit into the screen’s restricting dimensions, and for some you’ll need to turn the phone on its side to see them as they should be. Web pages seem to fit in just nicely though, since they’re generally designed for screens with a similar ratio.

The Flash support appears to be only Lite however, so you’ll get some animated banners, but not necessarily the full streaming video experience. It’s running Android 2.3 with HTC’s latest Sense 2.1 user interface. And while the latter takes a bit of juice to run, the ChaCha’s 800MHz processor seems to be up to the job, proceeding at a goodly pace through the apps and showing only very occasional signs of lag when things got busy.

The 5Mp camera is OK by HTC standards (that is, not great) but the overall quality is satisfactory. There’s a fairly anaemic flash with it plus autofocus, face detection and geotragging.
