Review: HTC Status
The Status is certainly an interesting device. It offers an appealing mix of features and capabilities at a low price point ($50 at launch).
The hardware's only real failing is the somewhat small display. I wish HTC had sacrificed some space on the keyboard and other controls in order to squeeze in a bit more display.
Signal performance was great, but that didn't translate to good call quality. If you're not that much of a talker and use your smarpthone mostly for messaging, this won't matter much.

The Facebook integration is top-notch, and I really like what HTC has done to make sharing thoughts, photos, links, and videos as simple as possible. Right now, I don't see how HTC could have done a better job. If you live and die by your Facebook account, the Status's features will probably help you become an over-sharing fiend.
The Status handles everything else — music, camera, browsing — about as well as most other Android phones and nothing here really stands out.
Bottom line? The Status is a good entry point for many feature phone users who would like to upgrade to a smartphone for the improved social networking experience. If the HTC Status were posted to Facebook, I'd surely "Like" it.
