Excerpt: The HTC Wildfire S is here to take the baton from HTC’s entry-level Android phone for 2010, the hit HTC Wildfire. This time around it’s sporting a spruced up screen, a newer bake of Android and a luvverly metal shell. Wildfire S - Design and build quality: If the original Wildfire was a pico-sized version of the hit 2010 HTC Desire Android phone, so the HTC Wildfire S echoes the new look and design of its sequel, the HTC Desire S.
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. HTC and T-Mobile also offer access to HTCSense.com from the device, so there are plenty of opportunities for personalization.
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. Despite the specifications, it performs well in most day-to-day tasks. It's a nice little mid-range smartphone that would be perfect for a first-time smartphone buyer, or perhaps for a texting teenager.
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. 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.
