But now, it's time for the HTC Wildfire, as good as it was, it's now getting a little dated, which is why, HTC have released a new, more improved version of their phone. The HTC Wildfire S. Ok, so not much originality in naming the phone, but it is an evolution, not revolution, so it makes sense.
Again, this phone is aimed at the budget market. That doesn't mean is doesn't pack a punch however. No. It's actually rather powerful. It might not be able to compete with the iPhones and and Galaxy S's of this world, but for the price you can't go far wrong. We mean, the first Wildfire gave a lot for your cash, but where it was knocked down was in the average display resolution, slow CPU and limited RAM. We're thrilled to say that HTC have made improvements on all of these problems with the announcement of the Wildfire S.
The Wildfire S has a cooler design than the first Wildfire, with 4 virtual keys underneath the display and no physical keys. This has helped it to become slighter and less heavy than its predecessor, the Wildfire, which just helps remove the chunkiness of the original. With its metallic body it looks and feels very smart and not like a budget phone at all. Although not strictly in the super slim class, with a thickness of 12.4mm it doesn't feel bulky and fits fine in the hand, making single-handed maneuvers an option if you're nimble-fingered.
The display size is the same as the original Wildfire, at 3.2 inches, but the resolution has been doubled to 320 x 480 pixels which really does make a lot of diversity for software, apps, and overall usability. Physically, the screen size is the same, but in terms of pixels, they're much smaller, and everyone knows how important that is. Browsing the web is much more distinct, and multimedia is much more vivid Also, and importantly, the UI has been given a fresh lease of life and has been updated to the latest version 2.3 (Gingerbread).
Overall, the HTC Wildfire S is a very decent, and as of writing, one of the best budget mobile phones on the market. So, from amongst all the mobile phone reviews we have done, we'd give this a 4 out of 5.
