Facebook is undoubtedly the best social networking site in the world as of now. No site beats Facebook when it comes to social networking. Facebook has over 800 Million users and most of them are addicted to Facebook in such a way that they just cannot live without it. That’s why when they are away from computer or laptop, they take out their phone and access Facebook from it.
To make Facebook accessing more better and easier, there are some phones which are exclusively made to make Facebook experience better than ever. In this post, I am going to tell you about the best Facebook smartphones/phones available and also, I will give you its purchase link so you can buy it if you like.
1. HTC ChaCha
Beginning with the best! HTC is the best and the most reputed company in the ones which are offering Facebook phones. They had released two Facebook phones at once. One of them is HTC ChaCha. HTC ChaCha is a Facebook based phone with a special ‘f’ button which lets you share and access Facebook faster. It is also a Touch and Type QWERTY phone which gives you a variety to choose from.
HTC ChaCha is a touch and type phone with QWERTY keypad. It has a 2.6 inches screen. It has the HTC Sense v2.1 which makes HTC phones special. Internal ROM and RAM is 512 MB.

2. Vodafone Blue 555
The cheapest one of them all! Vodafone Blue 555 was released in August 2011 and was promoted a lot as the new Facebook phone. It is a HTC ChaCha look-alike which is quite disappointing. Vodafone Blue 555 maybe the best phone manufactured by Vodafone. Even though its specifications are not very good, the low price sets all right. Also, you get 1 year of free Facebook access on your new or existing Vodafone SIM when you buy this phone.
Vodafone Blue 555 has a QWERTY keypad with 2.4 inches screen. It comes with 40 MB internal memory which is expandable up to 16 GB with a microSD card.

3. Motorola Motokey Social
This phone is a good competitor to the above phone but it beats Vodafone Blue 555 very easily. Motorola Motokey Social mainly focuses on Facebook but also gives you an opportunity to access some other sites such as Twitter and Youtube with ease. Motorola Motokey isn’t launched yet but will be by the end of December.

Why Buy Facebook Phones?
Well, one thing which must have entered in your mind when you saw these Facebook phones and that why is the need to buy special Facebook phones when Facebook can be accessed from any phone with internet. Well, these Facebook phones are kind of limited for the Facebook addicts.
In these phones, you can access Facebook with just a button press and also you can share photos, videos, status, etc. very easily. That’s the main reason to buy Facebook phones and also, they can be good phones if you are looking for QWERTY based phones.
Verdict: Which Phone to Buy?
HTC ChaCha, Vodafone Blue 555 and Motorla Motokey Social are the best Facebook phones in my opinion. HTC ChaCha is the best in these three and Vodafone Blue 555 is the cheapest. Motorola Motokey Social is yet to launch but it has good specifications but a bit absurd battery life. Specifications wise, HTC ChaCha is the best. Price wise, Vodafone Blue 555 takes the win.
What about Motorola Motokey Social? Sadly, it hasn’t hit the markets yet but it has got good specifications and that’s all. The specifications make it look like a phone which will cost around Rs. 5,000 to Rs. 8,000 but it may be less. If the price was provided, Motorola Motokey Social could have taken Vodafone Blue 555’s place because in the specifications, when you put Vodafone Blue 555 vs Motorola Motokey Social, what you get is a simple victory for Motorola.
Well, if you are looking for a great Facebook phone and can spend over Rs. 10K, just go for HTC ChaCha. You can never find any better Facebook phone than it. Vodafone Blue 555 offers more value of your money than any other Facebook phone. You can negotiate the price to buy it for Rs. 4K and also you get free 1 year access to Facebook with your existing or new Vodafone SIM. As of Motorola Motokey Social, it is better in specs than Vodafone Blue 555 but doesn’t has anything special to take it more forward.
Eventually, I would like to say that Motokey Social can be skipped unless it is priced low. As of now, if your budget is low, go for Vodafone Blue 555 or if you have a high budget, HTC ChaCha is waiting for you.
