Overall a great lower-end smartphone

Disadvantages: internal storage
I've had the wildfire for over a year now and overall I'm really pleased with it.
+ lots of apps available on the android market
+ sleek design - small and light enough to be comfortable, not so small it's fiddly
+ battery life (if you turn off 3G/wifi while you're not using it)
+ good camera with some nice features (lighting, focus, timer etc)
+ good quality sound
+ user friendly - it took me no time at all to get used to it (and I'd never had a touch screen before)
- internal memory is tiny - most of this is used up by things you can't delete on the phone (apps I never use such as stocks, news & twitter) and some downloaded apps cannot be moved to the SC card
- slight issue with touch screen not working in one corner - this seems to have resolved itself now
- constant requests to update - I've stopped doing them as they take up precious memory
If you're looking for an amazing, fast, powerful smartphone, you'd be better with an iPhone. If you're looking for a lower-spec phone which can still provide good internet access, the usualy phone features and a decent camera, I'd recommend it. Just watch the memory!
Summary: For the price, you can't complain!
