HTC Wildfire S
Advantages: Good Battery Life, Lots Of Feature, Strong Build.
Disadvantages: Design Is Bad.
Okay so i should start of by saying 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 phone is smaller, it no longer has the four buttons at the bottom and instead these are now touch screen buttons. The touchscreen tech is not actually bad, i don't think much has been upgraded in that department though.
The reception seems to work very well as does the batterie life, however again the old one also worked perfectly. The durability is rock solid, i mean i have dropped this phone many times already onto hard floor and other than a few scratches it works fine, however on my old phone the screen did crack, and i believe the screens are the same so this could be an issue.
The camera is 5MP and actually is very good for a phone, better than my current camera. The menu's do seem a little complicated, however after getting used to them they are quite cleverly designed.
Overall i woudn't say don't get this phone, but i would deffinatly try it out first as it is not the easyiest to use in my opinion. If i had the choice i would choose the older Wildfire, but as most functions are the same, not a bad phone, just the actual case design.

Summary: A Good Phone With All The Modern Features, But Is Un-comfortable For Me.
