Great phone but a bit slow
Member Name: ajivins
Advantages: Clear screen, Easy to sync with Google.
Disadvantages: Not quite as snappy as I would like. Battery life could be better.
This is my first Smartphone and so far I have found it really easy and intuitive to use. The screen is large and bright and I find it big enough for the little bit of web surfing I require whilst out and about. As an Android product it is really easy to set up with your Google account, and works pretty seamlessly - it is fantastic to have all my Google contacts synced with my phone.
The only downside is that it can be a little bit slow. Compared to other people's more modern Androids that I have played with, I find this phone is not quite as snappy as I would like. The battery is mediocre. My previous phone would go for over a week without being charged, whereas the Wildfire only seems to last a day or 2 at the most with light to medium usage. On the whole, if you can't afford one of the more up to date Android's I think this one would be a good choice, it does everything I need it to at the moment.
Summary: Great first Android if you can't afford one of the newer models.
