Comment: Slick interface, great to use, can't let go of it (just had it 3 days now).
But apparently no support for full flash player despite Gingerbread OS, so no iPlayer. Also poor FM radio.
Good: cheap android phone with good display
Bad: battery life

Good: great size, responsive touch screen, good looks, great camera, classy looking.
Bad: batter life
Comment: before this phone i had a blackberry curve and i hated it! now i have an android phone i finally feel like i am on the 21st century! when i first got my wildfire s i hated it for texting but now i have got used to it and its a breeze:) the touchscreen is very responsive and the pinch to zoom is very smooth. pictures look sharp but videos arent great which i am not fussed about. the phone doesnt seem to slow down to much during multi-tasking but a tiny little bit of lag is sometimes visable. the only criticism i have about this phone is the battery life, i often struggle to get through the day with out charging it. highly recommended phone!
Good: - Bright screen display ,
Comment: I brought a HTC Wildfire S , Yesterday , and since I haven't been able to put it down !!!! ,
I have FINALLY Upgrade from a SE K850i ( after replacing the screen 3-4 times at £30 a pop ) , not only that I broke the zero key and the camera button doesn't work - i still love it and had it for three years !! I have used alot of different smartphones from blackberry , Nokia, Motorola and Samsung , but i have sold them on so fast because i just didn;t like them for various reasons! The HTC Wildfire S has been completely different though!
I picked up the Wildfire S in white for a deal at £90 and unlocked , ( Currently selling on Ebay from anything from £100 - £200 ) , and so far i haven't been able to complain ! I have a 2GB memory card for the time being - which i think it will be full very soon =p ) , but to cut this review short I'll tell you what i find personally best able the phone ,
Comment: This phone seems so good. I was disappointed when I found out that the HTC Wildfire was now unavailable on a Vodafone contract, which is what I am going for, but I have made a deal with my mum and I have now going for this phone for £20.50 a month. I can't wait for the phone. I'll do a review of it here when I have it at the end of this month! :)
Good: Really great apps size interface everything!
Bad: Uses internet when you dont want it to
Comment: I have had thisn phone for a couple of weeks and in wouldsuggest going to the carphone warehouse for great deals!
Comment: I really want a HTC wildfire S! i've had a blackberry curve 8520 for around a year and i am getting really tired of it! it sticks and it turns off at random moments! My birthday i just around the corner and i want a new phone!
The HTC Wildfire S really caught my eye as you can get it in purple and white(my fave colours)
I would like to read more comments about this phone and i would like to think that there would be good reviews on the product!
Comment: good phone
Good: Pocket sized
Bad: I cant get the Mobile Network to work
Comment: I only had the HTC Wildfire s for less then a week and i love it, but i just cant get the mobile Network to work.
Good: A good improvement on the Wildfire. Nicer screen resolution. HTC live wallpapers.
Bad: Battery life seems a little shorter but not significantly so.
Comment: I got a Wildfire a few months ago and really enjoyed it. When my mum was renewing her contract she very kindly took my Wildfire and let me have her Wildfire S as she has not had a smartphone before and won't use it for much beyond the basics, which the Wildfire is fine for. I had to factory reset my phone for my mum and when I was setting up both phones, the new Wildfire S was noticably quicker downloading apps. Also as it has wireless N capability it was communicating much faster with my router. The screen looks so much better now and I love the compact size. I use the phone fairly intnsively and I reckon it is going to need charging every day to day and a half. But it charges so quickly, that is really irrelevant and it tends to be joined to my PC when I am in front of it anyway so it won't really impact me. My friend has an HTC Desire and I can't stand the size of the thing! The Wildfire S still feels like a phone! Although Angry Birds still sticks occasionally it is MUCH smoother than on the Wildfire. The Sense interface feels smoother on the S. I am very happy with this little phone. I haven't tried any other higher end smartphones other than the original iphone but I think I am going to be very happy with this one.
