HTC Wildfire S (MetroPCS)

CNET
12 November 2011
  • Summary: Despite its small stature, the HTC Wildfire S is well-crafted and easy on the eye. Unfortunately, a slow data network holds it back.
  • Pros: The HTC Wildfire S is a beautifully built Android 2.3 Gingerbread handset with a decent 5-megapixel camera and lots of additional software features.
  • Cons: Without compatibility for MetroPCS' LTE network, the Wildfire S is stuck at slow-as-slugs 2.5G speeds. Its small size makes it trickier to maneuver the Web.

HTC Wildfire S

MobileTechReview.com
23 August 2011
  • 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. Call quality is good and reception is average on T-Mobile.
  • Pros: Compact, affordable entry level Android smartphone.
  • Cons: No 4G, no Adobe Flash, relatively low res display.

  • Conclusion: It is a fine average offering at a mid-range price, and ought to suit those whose demands are not too high, especially in areas such as video or web browsing, but check out the competition before buying and think about whether you need a larger screen.

HTC Wildfire S

cellphones.ca
5 November 2011
  • Excerpt: The HTC Wildfire S was released in May of 2011 to replace its popular predecessor, the Wildfire. The phone received some minor tweaking in its overall appearance, and the new version is slightly thinner and lighter than its previous incarnation, but not by much. The major improvements the Wildfire S offers over the previous generation are in the hardware and software departments.

HTC Wildfire S

3g
7 August 2011
  • Summary: A nice addition to the ranks of affordable smartphones, but there is nothing that really makes it stand out
  • Pros: Android 2.3 at a pocket-friendly price; small size; top-notch networking integration.
  • Cons: The snapper lets it down and the chip is a tad slow. While the phone runs on Android 2.3, it lacks the power to make the most of it.

HTC Wildfire S review -

Mobile Choice UK
7 June 2011
  • Pros: Android 2.3 for a very affordable price, dinky form factor and excellent social networking integration.
  • Cons: The camera is disappointing and the processor is on the sluggish side. Though it runs on Android 2.3, the Wildfire is incapable of making the most of the OS.

HTC Wildfire S review

expertreviews.co.uk
21 May 2011
  • Excerpt: The new Wildfire S is 6mm shorter and weighs 13g less than the Wildfire it replaces. Its screen has the same 3.2in diagonal, but its 320x480 resolution is an improvement on the previous model's 240x320 pixels. We can't help but feel the looks have taken a step backwards, though, due to the tacky chrome strip around the screen and the removal of the handy directional optical pad.

HTC Wildfire S review: A mini Desire S missing the crucial bits

electricpig
28 April 2011
  • Summary: For better or worse, this is micro Android, not budget Android
  • Pros: Tiny metal shell feels just like a Desire S
  • Cons: You'd never guess it was Android 2.3, so little has changed

Auswertung der Testberichte

eTest
24 September 2012
  • Excerpt: Das erste HTC Wildfire war ein echter Kassenschlager. Zu einem günstigen Preis brachte es die Tugenden eines HTC Smartphone unter das Volk. Bei Display und Arbeitstempo mussten Wildfire Besitzer aber Abstriche machen. Mit dem HTC Wildfire S präsentiert der Hersteller nun einen würdigen Nachfolger, der es jedoch mit immer stärkerer Konkurrenz z.B. von Samsungs Wave-Serie zu tun hat.
