HTC Wildfire S
Advantages: android app store, other smart phone benefits, camera, nice appearance
Disadvantages: Not very durable at all, Freezes A LOT
It really disappoints me to say this, but the HTC Wildfire is the worst phone I've ever owned. I got this phone as my first ever contract phone, and it was a BIG mistake. When I was first looking at it, the phone itself and all its features looked great. I thought it was a very affordable just-as-good android that would have similar functions to an iphone which i've never had before. I spend the first few days exploring all it had to offer, the app store which had quite a bit of variety (however having the iphone now I do have to say it's not as good as the iphone app store), you could download music on it, the camera wasn't great.
Personally I found browsing the internet a bit difficult on it, compared to an iphone or even any other cheap samsung i've had with a touch screen.
After 5 days of starting to get used to and like the phone more my screen went completely black and the phone would not turn on, it just stayed black. I hadn't dropped it, I tried everything I could think of to fix it (plugging it in to charge, changing the battery, etc) but no, that was it. Funny enough my boyfriend who bought the same phone at the same time as me started having problems with his as well about a week after. It would send texts, the screen would freeze and after about 2 weeks in total of having the phone his was broken in the same way as mine. Overall I wish I would have saved myself a lot of hassle and just got a better phone to begin with.
I don't recommend the HTC.
Summary: Very expensive when you consider the actual quality your getting
