Summary: In short, the conclusion is clear: the HTC Wildfire S is a smartphone which, despite its small screen, deserves at least a try. And besides, you can get it for free with a $100 mail-in rebate and new, 2-year contract.
Excerpt: Aaron reviews T-Mobile's newest Android phone, the HTC Wildfire S . It's no HTC Sensation 4G, but with a 600 MHz processor, 3.2-inch display, 5-megapixel camera, and Android 2.3 with HTC Sense 2.1, it's a nice little mid-range phone.
Excerpt: Aaron goes in-depth with the HTC Wildfire S , T-Mobile's newest Android smartphone. Announced at Mobile World Congress earlier in the year, the Wildfire S has a 600 MHz Qualcomm CPU, 3.2-inch display, 5-megapixel camera with flash, and Android 2.3 with HTC Sense 2.1.
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.
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.
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”.
Conclusion: If you just want to browse the web, do email, send texts and take some surprisingly decent photos and video, the Wildfire S does it in a stylish package. The display is sharp and colorful, though at 3.2", men with large hands will probably find the on-screen keyboard (HTC's and Swype) too small.
Summary: Cute : Most people would probably agree that the HTC Wildfire S is a cutie. It’s size and curvy design are eye-catching and it feels great in the hand or in the pocket. It does everything that HTC pitches: sharing photos and updates on social networks, mapping, web browsing… etc.
