Good: Size, Features, Camera Multi-Touch, Music on speakers plays loud...
Bad: No Equalizer for music (sounds flat), Screen Resolution, Very Very slow and does lock up occasionally, loads wrong message threads in your SMS sometimes, Internet browser can be slow and horrible to look at.
Comment: The HTC Wildfire is a good phone, in design, looks, screensize and features. It packs a lot of punch for such a small smartphone for such a small price. However The phone does lack some features such as a Music Equalizer for music fans, so you cannot adjust the bass or treble levels to how you like your music, the phone can be very slow to respond sometimes, one time taking up to 5 minutes to respond which if in an emergency could be a matter of life and death, the screen resolution for such a phone is very poor, you have to really zoom in on text and pictures to see finer quality or read things, the battery life is also poor, having charged my phone up fully yesterday for a long journey using both trains and phone features the phone ran out of battery just as I was getting back to the city where I live.
Overall if you want a basic android phone, this is good, would recommend however getting the new Wildfire S seeing as it should have better features than this, however if you dont want to pay the S prices, then get this.
