"Great choice for a smartphone"

This phone was chosen as it is a cheap pay monthly smart phone that uses an android system. The wildfire s is a very effective phone and the it is very easy to use as the menu system is very clear and straight forward.

The vast amount of apps that are available on the android market makes this phone a superb choice. These applications run very smooth and quick. One issue with this phone is the size, it is actually smaller than i expected it to be, however this is probably the reason why this phone is so cheap. I was able to get this phone for only £15 a month where i get unlimited internet! Texting mnay be an issue for people who have larger fingers, however you could always turn the phone landscape and this would help the issue as the buttons would be larger

Furthermore the satellite navigation that arrives pre-installed with the phone is very useful and easy to use. It has never failed to get me to my destination and is always accurate. Many feature are admirable for example the ability to find places nearby for example restaurants, pubs and ATM's and the feature that tells me how far away the destination is.

Product Information : HTC Wildfire S

Manufacturer's product description

Your HTC Wildfire S knows that the online world, is your world. Being offline is not an option. With the HTC Wildfire S, surfing the web is easy. Enjoy multi-window browsing, watch text resize automatically on screen as you zoom in and out, and simply highlight text to quickly look up what you're reading about on Google, Wikipedia or YouTube. You're as connected on the move as you are at home. Make the HTC Wildfire S your very own. Express your personality and customize it with colorful skins, soundsets and widgets - all available to download directly from your phone. Along with inspiring scenes to match your social, entertainment or more serious side, for those that have one. Wouldn't it be handy if your Caller ID not only displayed a name and number, but also vital stuff like their Facebook status and birthday? HTC Wildfire S does just that, so when you look to see who's calling, you know to say "Happy Birthday" the moment you answer the phone.
