ProPrice. Build-quality, features, versatility

ConsLots to learn. Iiffy battery life.

From Poor Man’s Blackberry to Poor Man’s iPhone It’s been another difficult decision week. What shall I give priority to on my ‘plastic’ this month? Buy a new front tyre for the SEAT or get a new mobile phone? Hmmm, tricky one, especially since my wife has been flaunting her sparkly new phone...

“Wildfire over iPhone 4”

published 16/07/2010

ProGreat value, Easy to use, Very customizable

ConsA couple of minor texting faults - very minute!

Firstly I apologize as this is my first review for several months and so it may not be the best read, but I felt this phone was such a great discovery it deserved a good review. "WHAT IS THE WILDFIRE?" The HTC Wildfire is one of the latest models from the HTC company and rivals the iPhone4 in the...

I needed a new phone to use as a second phone alongside my iPhone but didn't want to spend too much. I kept hearing rave reviews about Android so thought I'd try it out, as it would give me more functionality than a normal mobile. I chose the Wildfire, an entry level Android phone from HTC...

Consprovided memory card is low capacity

For those of you aware that I was moving to contract (as opposed to pay as you go) - this is the phone I went for. The deal I got was from t-mobile (who I had been with on pay as you go) - I got the phone free and for £20 a month I get 600 minutes, 500 texts, unlimited internet and 60 minutes to...

ConsOut of date running system, grainy screen.

The HTC Wildfire is quite an old phone now but as is the way of being a parent I pay for the latest contracts and then have my childs old phone if it has survived two years of teenage abuse. When the Wildfire was brand new I insisted that my daughter use screen protectors and a gel case which has...

How I came to end up with the HTC Wildfire S is interesting as it wasn't actually my choice. About 6 weeks ago my previous "smartphone", the Samsung Galaxy Portal (aka Samsung Spica) decided to turn itself into a high-tech paperweight. Being relatively technically minded, and having a laptop to...

I was recommended this phone by a friend just before christmas. I researched it for quite a few days to find out the best deals: It turns out cheaper to go on a contract, but if you wanted, it would be just as easy to go onto pay as you go.
