Bad: ugly back
Comment: @Hex_uk in response to your comment; I have had the wildifre for 3 months now and it has been great. The screen being qvga has not been an issue for me at all, only minor apps i have noticed missing due to screen resolution (IE sony's blu-ray player remote app)
the wildfire can also be updated to 2.2 now meaning there are no software differences between the two devices, and the processor is only 72mhz slower which i doubt would make a substantial difference.
I think ti mainly comes down to which one you prefer the look of, and the price that they are sold at.
However it maybe worth noting HTC are more inclined to update the gratia to 2.3 (or 2.4 as the case may be) than they would be to update the wildfire to 2.4. although i expect they will. my friend with an htc magic running 1.6 received an update a month ago to 2.2. it would seem HTC are good at looking after their customers.
Comment: Does anyone have any thoughts on how this compares to the Wildfire? I am looking to buy a Wildfire as it suits my needs perfectly but am holding off a while to see what price the Gratia comes in at on PAYG. The biggest advantage I see the Gratia having over the Wildfire is that it has an HVGA screen rather than the Wildfires QVGA.
Comment: Not having tried this I cannot accurately make a review. Although it looks like a good mid range phone, the lack of processing speed, camera and other features that seem below par, I have to say "not for me"
