HTC Wildfire S. As Smart A Phone As You Could Hope For The Price

AdvantagesAwesome Phone - Great Amount Of Technology Crammed Into A Small Space

DisadvantagesBattery Life, And FM Radio Isn't Great, No Stylus Provided As Standard

"...browse. Why I Chose the HTC Wildfire S: I had a look around and the HTC Wildfire S seemed to be the one phone that jumped out at me that had the best compromise between tecnology and price. For £25 a month I could get the phone for "free" along with 2000 cross network minutes, 2000 texts, 5000 3 to 3 minutes and unlimited internet access. The internet access was the least of my worries to begin with until the salesman pointed out that I could ..." Read review

HTC Wildfire S: Let's See Your Wild Side!

AdvantagesCheap, very user friendly, customisable, various additions.

DisadvantagesThe screen can be unresponsive.

"...my close friends had the HTC Wildfire S and it came highly recommended, although I trust their judgement completely I wanted to read a few more reviews to see what the general view of the phone was. The reviews were pretty good and so I decided to go for it. Firstly the cost, I have had a look in various places and it seems the price range for this particular phone is anywhere between £120 and £200 it's a case of looking around and finding the best ..."

Wildfire S to get or not to get? Review with images

AdvantagesGreat touch responsiveness , Wi-Fi, Apps

DisadvantagesCan be laggy with some apps

"== HTC WILDFIRE S REVIEW == === A Bit Of Background === The HTC Wildfire arrived in mid 2010 while the world was still overly excited for the HTC Desire. The wildfire was as popular if not more popular than the desire due to its look, design and most of all, the price. It was for most people the first affordable smartphone. There were onle two major things that let the Wildfire down, one of these things was the screen resolution. Basically it was ..." Read review

AdvantagesStylish Look and Feel!

DisadvantagesBattery Talktime!

"... I have been using the HTC wildfire since December 2011. My husband brought me this phone for Christmas. I have always wanted a HTC branded phone and really liked the phone when I first saw it.

Highs and lows with HTC Wildfire S

AdvantagesPrice, easy to use, camera

DisadvantagesVery small internal memory

"...more hi-spec. ***The Phone*** The HTC Wildfire S was brought out in 2011 as an upgrade on the wildfire model. Design wise it is a fairly standard looking touch screen phone but is a little smaller than the likes of a Samsung Galaxy but not much smaller than an iPhone (it's dimensions are 101.3 x 59.4 x 12.4 and weighs 105 grams) while I opted for a black finish to my phone as I worry about white phones getting marked in my bag. In terms of operating ..." Read review

Good price/quality phone, though sometimes frustrating

AdvantagesSmall, lightweight, fast internet, battery is quickly loaded

DisadvantagesWay too little internal memory, sometimes gets stuck

"This is my first ''luxury phone'' which I acquired last september.Outside of the phone:The phone is lightweight and feels good in my hands. The four buttons on the bottom are the only buttons necessary: home, menu, back and search though the last one is barely used in my case. The ''hold'' button is sometimes annoying while listening to music while riding my bicycle; when I try to put my phone back into my pocket, the hold ..." Read review

Wildfire S A Perfect Smartphone

AdvantagesExcellent Camera, Good Android Platform

DisadvantagesBattery life runs away when playing games

"I have had the HTC for almost two years now and even though its a little outdated, its still a really great smart phone. I wasn't sure at first, whether the smart phone was for me at first because I hadn't know too much about smart technology. However, I really loved this phone and still do!!! My HTC Wildfire S came with an Android OS and comes with a great 3.2 inch screen which is of course a touch screen! However, the phone came with lots of ..." Read review

HTC certainly see sense!

AdvantagesSmall, light, quick, great apps, easy to use

DisadvantagesLow battery life, a few small issues

"...chose to opt for the HTC Wildfire S due to the need for on the go internet and easy operating. Now that I have had my phone for two months I can confidently say that it is a great little phone and one that I would recommend to others! Internet: I find the internet very easy to use and I am impressed by how all pages are scaled to fit the screen and how zooming in and out is very easy. There are numerous apps that enhance the internet experience ..." Read review

Fantastic value for money.

AdvantagesGreat music player, camera and social networking connections.

DisadvantagesBattery life can be poor.

"...how great she thought her HTC Desire was. As I was buying a phone out right, and not on contract, I knew I couldn't afford to buy that one. However I was told about the Wildfire, that it was like a mini version of the Desire. So after hours researching, the Wildfire seemed to come up trumps. And after finding it on promotion for £100 I decided to go for it. And I am so happy that I did. I literally could not live with out it!! The phone fits nicely ..." Read review

The HTC Wildfire S comes highly recommended. Review with images

AdvantagesEasy to use, great compatibility with apps, good looks, lightweight, terrific online capabilities

DisadvantagesKeypad on touch screen is not suitable for people with larger fingers

"After not hearing much about HTC phones, I was actually delightfully surprised when I received my new Wildfire S in the post. Being small and lightweight with a large screen, it was ideal for me as I always carry my phone in my pocket and in the past, I have had phones that weighed me down and felt bulky even to the point of discomfort. Aside from this, another feature that appealed to me was the fact it was completely touch screen which meant no ..." Read review

Is It Any Better? Wildfire S

AdvantagesGood Battery Life, Lots Of Feature, Strong Build.

DisadvantagesDesign Is Horrible.

"...i used to have the HTC Wildfire (Not S), and honestly i would choose it over this anyday. Considering this is the upgrade i don't think it has any more useful features and the design is horrible. Just my opinion, but the phone is too small and generally uncomfortable to use. I have big hands but stil it is alot smaller than most smartphones on the market, this may be a pro to you, i don't know. Now i think the screen size is the same, but the actual ..." Read review

Great choice for a smartphone

AdvantagesUses android, touch screen, navigation works effectively.

DisadvantagesBattery life, the screen is a little small

"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, ..." Read review

An average smartphone, but comes with it's problems

AdvantagesEasy to use, goof functionality

DisadvantagesInternal memory

"...a common fault with the HTC Wildfire. It's SO frustrating though and now means that it's actually impossible to use the phone to it's full capabilities and means that my partner is likely to start looking for a new phone. It's a shame because without the one downside it's a really great phone and does everything else well. ..." Read review
