Budget HTC Phone
Member Name: scotshurdler
Advantages: Android system, Slim and light, fairly inexpensive
Disadvantages: Poor screen definition, slow , battery quick to drain
The HTC Wildfire released in 2010 as an alternative to the higher end HTC Desire and mid level HTC Legend, came in with a much lesser price tag for a handset.
On the surface it does all the same things as these other phones, runs the same operating system (android) and enjoys the perks of doing so, such as free apps and regular updates to the system ensuring the phone doesn't become outdated.
It is unfortunately though far slower, without the same high resolution screen which can make running many apps a struggle and is prone to freezing occasionally. This sadly, makes it hard to enjoy the features that it offers.
I suppose these shortfalls are be expected when the basic cost is far less than other phones but if you are going to get a new phone on contract then there quite often is no need to opt for a low level handset such as the HTC Wildfire. Many wildfire contracts come in around the £25 mark on the major networks but with a little bargaining or just looking out for the better offers, you can bag a top level HTC for the same price per month.
Overall I DO NOT recommend this phone, it has a lot of potential but not the specifications it needs to pull it off.
Summary: Budget option to the better HTC phones but not exactly better value
