Summary: The HTC Wildfire looks and feels like a cut-down HTC Desire, but that's no bad thing. Its low-resolution screen doesn't show the powerful Android operating system at its best, but we can forgive its blurriness when the phone offers so many software and hardware features at such a low price
Cons: Low-resolution screen makes Web sites hard to read and hinders the user interface in places; occasionally slow to respond to taps.
Excerpt: If phones could make babies, then this HTC Wildfire would indubitably be the love child of the Desire and Nexus One . But of course, the humdrum reality is that 'tis just an Android 2.1 replacement for the entry-level Tattoo -- same 528MHz Qualcomm MSM7225 processor, 3.2-inch 320 x 240 capacitive LCD touchscreen instead of 2.8-inch resistive, 384MB RAM instead of 256MB, and a 5-megapixel camera instead of 3.2 (although quality matters more, obviously).
Pros: Stylish, Great battery life, Affordable
Cons: Weak video playback, Poor camcorder, Low-res screen
HTC Wildfire review – does this super-cheap Android cut too many corners?
17 June 2011
Excerpt: In this HTC Wildfire review, I’m not only going to review the Wildfire itself, I’ll also show how it differs from the HTC Desire, the flagship Android phone that’s been flying off the shelves all year.
Conclusion: The HTC Wildfire is an excellent mid-range touchscreen with some great features. Though it looks a lot like a small version of an HTC Desire it should be noted that the display isn't as sharp and the phone isn't quite as quick on its feet as it's bigger sibling. Despite this, it’s one of the best low-cost handsets around.
Excerpt: If you can’t justify forking out the small fortune it costs to buy an all-singing, all dancing, top-of-the-range mobile handset, then the HTC Wildfire could be for you….. HTC ‘s Wildfire has been around for a few months now and offers an entry-level look at Google’s Android 2.1 operating system for those restricted by budget or just not interested in high price tags or expensive contracts.
Summary: The HTC Wildfire is a good handset, but it's lacking when it comes to stand-out features. We really love the design and the compact footprint, and it's worth a look if you're on a tight budget. If you can afford to spend a little more, however, HTC has lots of other handsets with higher resolution displays and more powerful processors.
