Conclusion: The HTC Wildfire S is a neat little mid-range phone with a stylish design. It has a lot to offer, but isn’t without its limitations. The limited storage space, will frustrate those who want to download and use plenty of apps, who should check out the HTC Desire S or wait for the HTC Sensation.
Excerpt: HTC Wildfire S remains underpowered and builds on its popular predecessor, with its more alluring design and superior display. It is a beautifully designed Android 2.3 Gingerbread smartphone with plethora of additional software features and decent five-megapixel camera. The Wildfire S is developed and designed by HTC Corporation and was announced in the month of February 2011 at Mobile World Congress and revealed three months later in Europe.
Summary: The HTC Wildfire S may not be up there with the pricier handsets, but as a budget handset, the HTC Wildfire offers a handsome alternative with all the features you need to stay in touch, browse the web and listen to the odd tune.
Conclusion: I really wanted to like the HTC Wildfire S. Its compact, cute design seemed like the perfect antidote to the 4.5" monsters everyone seems to be focused on. But at the end of the day, it was just too much of a compromise. And the slow, stuttery navigation was just icing on the cake (I don't like cake, hence the odd analogy).
Excerpt: Lately we’ve gotten accustomed to high-end, expensive smartphones. The low-end is still primarily populated with the “dumb” flip-style phones. Apple has opted for selling older versions of its iPhone as “entry level”. HTC, on the other hand, has decided to offer slower, less feature-rich phones as their entry-level models.
