HTC Wildfire S
Advantages: Build Quality, Size, HTC Intuition
Disadvantages: Performance under heavy loads
The HTC Wildfire S is designed to fill the gap between the cheap and expensive, opening up the middle ground of the market.
Look and Feel:
The phone is very sleek, with a relatively low profile and high quality finish. Upon opening the box, the Wildfire S comes across as compact but not tiny or diminutive. In fact it is probably a very good size for those who struggle with some of the larger phones on the market. It is weighty in the right way; that being not too light to let slip or too heavy to notice when in a pocket.
As a touch screen phone, the response and performance of the screen is paramount. In this arena, the Wildfire S encounters very few issues and comes out with all colours flying. The screen is pleasantly responsive and is easy to manipulate.
Rather under powered compared to most phones on the market today, the Wildfire S does suffer from low internal memory (a cost cutting measure). Although it does support Micro SD cards (moving files here will help the running of the phone), you can find yourself limited if you are a heavy app user. This aside however, the little HTC does run it's race very well indeed, and if used within it's limits will easily stand out from the crowd.
The Wildfire S does not try to hide the fact it is a budget smart phone, but it hasn't cut corners either. If you don't spend all day on your phone but want something that is compact, intuitive and well rounded, the Wildfire S is a fair consideration. The battery life is ok, and it comes with enough features to keep the average user happy.
Summary: A well rounded, no frills smart phone
