HTC Wildfire S Review Roundup

By Gary Johnson - May 18, 2011

The HTC Wildfire S is the company’s attempt for an affordable smartphone. The original model was quite successful for HTC, as people on a budget looked for a feature packed touchscreen device. For those of you considering the device we have a HTC Wildfire S review roundup for you.

The handset was first announced back in February but how does it perform? Chris Hall of Pocket-lint has written a detailed review of the device. Just to recap the handset has a Qualcomm 600MHz processor running Android 2.3.3. The display is an improvement over the original with a 480×320 resolution display.

The display has a crisp image but is too small for using the internet on a regular basis. Touch response of the screen was ok for its 3.2-inch size. It was also found to be a nice compact handset if that’s what you are looking for.

Another review on theunwired concluded that the Wildfire S is great for anyone who is new to smartphones. But for an entry level smartphone it may be the best available at the moment. Ginny Mies from PC Advisor gives the handset four out of five stars and says what it lacks with features is made up with its looks.

An article by Chris Davies of SlashGear has a good review of the device with video and camera shots. It was found that the processor may cause issues for the speed freaks out there, but people wanting a respectable handset which won’t break the bank the Wildfire S could be for them.
