As a social network orientated phone, the HTC Salsa has got some things right, like having a dedicated Facebook button to make it easier to share your thoughts, links, pictures and videos with your friends. Furthermore, the new interactive...

The HTC Salsa is a solidly built smartphone with a good screen, reasonable camera, fine UI and an emphasis on social networking, thanks largely to its clever Facebook button. This latter will endear it to ’bookers, but otherwise it doesn’t...

The HTC Salsa provides easy integration with the world's most popular social networking service, but its ultimate appeal will depend on how much you use Facebook on a daily basis. The Facebook key is not a deal breaker, but putting that aside, the...

The HTC Salsa is currently exclusive to Vodafone and free on the $29 cap or $45 Infinite plan over 24 months, well priced considering this phone is suited for the younger market (or the young at heart Facebook user). The phone also supports...

Between the ChaCha and Salsa, the latter is superior but it doesn't mean it's the best Android smartphone you can buy at this...

Shame we didn't think of it first. Facebook has 750 million users. And you don't actually need all of them. Oh well, some of them are obviously a bird, a rodent or a fish but that's not the point. All you need is to get a mere one percent...

The Salsa is a decent phone, but given Vodafone will give you a Nexus S for exactly the same money, we're not quite sure why you'd opt for...

The HTC Salsa is a nicely made smartphone, though the chassis is a bit iffy in places. The Facebook button is a bit gimmicky in that it doesn't offer anything new or special, but it does give you speedy access to Facebook features....

What HTC has tried to do with the Salsa is produce a phone that has Facebook at its core, while still doing everything else you’d expect from a mobile device. And it does just that. Its features manage to ensure your virtual interactions work...

Here we are at the end of another exciting review, I have to say that during my time with the Salsa there have been some good moments and some annoying ones but my overall opinion is that it is simply a revisited handset with the addition of a...

Overall the HTC Salsa is a great social media smartphone which is perfect for connecting users across Facebook while on the go. This phone’s primary function is its Facebook integration, for those looking for a business type device or a great...

If you’re a Facebook addict who likes to keep tabs on your virtual social circle, the HTC Salsa is the phone for you....

The HTC Salsa offers decent power, impressive battery life and a good screen, as well as handy Facebook features. If you’re after a Facebook-focused phone, we reckon the Salsa’s a better bet than the HTC ChaCha and INQ Cloud...

Sponsored links, if any, appear in green. The HTC Salsa is one of two new Facebook-oriented handsets from HTC. It combines typical Facebook integration with some extra functionality. The hardware Facebook key is something unseen on rival handsets,...

There's a slight lack of high-quality action in the mid-sized Android phone section. The big manufacturers are focusing their attentions on creating monstrous, high-end "super-phones" with entire LCD monitors stuffed in their cases, while the...

The lives, but is it really in tune with your social networks or is the tie up an unnecessary addition? HTC’s not been shy with bringing phones to market this year; there’ve been a fair few barnstorming handsets already from the Taiwanese...

So if you're looking for a phone in this price range, you will fall into one of two groups, those who should get an HTC Salsa or those who'd be better served with an HTC Desire S or another similarly specced handset. If you consider your...

The Salsa is an odd little phone. If HTC hadn’t bothered with the extra Facebook garnish, and instead made a low- to mid-tier Android handset with the sturdy chassis of the Legend, two-day battery life and most of the more appealing features from...

If you are looking for a good mid-range handset equipped with useful Facebook shortcuts, this is the device to choose, although hardcore Facebook fans may prefer the INQ Cloud Touch. The integration is subtle though, so if you happy using the Android...
