Frequently Bought Together With This Mobile
Recently ordered this phone from flipkart. The phone was delivered in perfect condition and on time by filpkart, as always. But upon using the phone for a week, i realised the phone had one major flaw. It was with the INTERNAL MEMORY.
It only has 150mb of free internal memory as oppose to 512mb ( 350mb is already taken by the OS), while out of the 150 mb, 70-80% of it is already pre-loaded with apps like the HTC sense, Peeps, etc.
So now when you want to install apps of your own, you only have around 20mb-30mb of space left. The phone starts acting all stucky and weird. Now, after not installing the apps you want, the cache starts becoming a problem. So every time you have to clear your cache for all the apps to make space and let the phone run smoothly (apart from not getting to install the apps you want). You will just have to enter login information again-n-again. They do have a way of transferring the app from phone memory to card memory, but sadly, most of the apps are not transferable.
(It seems the apps which have their own widgets, are non-transfarable)
Sad that such a beautiful and powerful phone has such a major problem. Im sure HTC could have sorted this 'Internal Memory' problem, but they didn't, just to restrict the user usage and experience. So now, you have no choice but to upgrade to a higher end model.
Hello Folks. Well i purchased a HTC Wildfire S about a month back. Although I didn't purchase it on FlipKart, I just thought i need to write a review. I have heard one too many folks with nothing but bad things to say about this phone. So i thought i'd write a review. Ok Review first.
Look and Feel :
A decent looking handset, with gorilla glass (Although prone to minor scratches every now and then), plastic body but feels premium finish, with USB to micro USB cable for charging which can also be plugged directly to charger as well(this is a standard with most smart phone i guess). The 2.3 gingerbread OS is slick. HTC sense adds for a better looking UI.
Most reviews claim the processor to be slow, But it is not. I atleast have 20 apps running simultaneously, just to check for any lag. But guess what. No lag what so ever. Smooth as ever. Memory available to the user for installing apps is only about 130 MB. The remaining 390 odd MB used by the OS and default apps. You can install apps to the SD card, but all google related apps cannot be moved to the SD card like maps, google plus which actually consume atleast 25 MB. This may be a problem to some, But i say install only what you really need and you should do fine. Expandable upto 32 GB, so storage is not an issue. On board speaker is decent, although it could have been just a little better. Default earphones provided are awesome. Got great sound.
People have complained about the battery life. And i would agree. Max life i get is about five hours(Using the internet, messaging, chatting, 3 hrs Music, fiddling around with other apps and a game or here). It is not bad if you ask me. Just make sure you carry a charger around or atleast the usb cable just in case.
I am sure many would want to know about. Captures decent pictures with good light. But the sensors on board don't perform that well in low light, which directly results in bad pictures. You could use the flash, but it does not help most of the times. Overall, one of the better cameras for a phone in this budget.
2.3 OS is the all new improved version. A little different than the previous ones. You could get a lot of apps of the android market. The keyboard is a bit of problem. Keys too close to each other. You could always get anothre keyboard off the market. Facebook, twitter, peep, friends stream, gtalk, maps, youtube etc are by default present. Youtube videos plays in HQ. Phones works better with WI-FI. Opera Mini browser is faster than the on board, so you should probably get that. Pinch and zoom works like a charm. The widgets are all very easily customisable. Music player is great.
It is a great phone if you want it to be. Keep your expectations real. Just because it looks like real high end phone doesn't mean it should work like one. Remember - It is a phone and not a computer.
My rating is 9 out of 10.
Alternate models LG p500, DELL XCD, Galaxy ACE
Thanks for reading.
i received my handset in just 4 days.. even before the expected date of release.. that's great..
sleek and easy to handle.
great touch response.. it does not miss a click.
colors are good but not great.
the cell is up-to date with 2.3 even then some softwares dont run with this because of low processor..
hard to type (no swipe typing like in samsung sets)
music loves have bad news - low system sound (very low)
the player is also not good.. really bad when it comes to playing your favourite tunes :(
the 2gb card is not enough .. plus it does not have a lot of apps pre installed
When you tilt the cell horizontally the buttons vanish into thin air.. you will have to tilt it back to actually click..(really frustrating)
build is really good.. but it does not have a protective film on the screen so better buy one
Other than this the phone is really good .. and the battery is not as bad it works really long until you are bent on sucking it up in one go :D it is very kawaii(sweet in jap) and also has a great multi-touch
Hi people, I have been using wildfire s for last 9 months...yes, when I bought the phone, I was unhappy about the battery life and the low internal memory. And I almost decided to sell my wildfire s and buy some high end android phone with large internal memory.
But 2 months back, I came across the process of rooting my wildfire-s. Rooting is the process of gaining administrative access to your phone.
Well, I understand, the process is a little confusing but once you gather enough information about rooting, it will be a cakewalk.
So, once I rooted the phone, I was able to install a custom ROM (Cyanogenmod 7.2) which not only enhanced the performance of my phone but also resolved the 2 critical drawbacks of this phone - Battery Backup & Internal Memory.
Once I rooted my phone, I can dedicate some space on my external card which acts like phone's internal memory. I dedicated 2 GB space on my 8 GB sd-card and now I have almost 75 apps installed on my phone and I am still left with more than 1 GB space in my sd card.
Once I rooted my phone, I was able to control my CPU speed i.e. underclock it or overclock it when required. So, I underclock the phone CPU when I am not using it to the minimum value so that it consumes less battery. And believe it or not, I am getting 30 hrs. of battery life on moderate use i.e. I make 10-15 calls a day, send 50-100 sms per day...surf the net whenever needed...and facebook and google talk is constantly running in the background.
So, I hope, this review would have answered most of the queries that you must be having.
I am very happy with my wildfire-s now...
Thanks for reading this review.
Thanks to Flipkart for delivering within 3 days of ordering. Extremely neat packaging and no worries at all.
The phone is extremely cute when u look at it (I have dark grey colour piece). This was my first touch screen experience and had no probs at all for first time user like me. Android too is very good experience. I activated 3G immediately on Vodafone and experienced the speed too.
The music sound level is too low which means that music must be heard using earphones only else bad.
Some applications need to be downloaded. Like I downloaded Scientific calculator (Nokia actually gives scientific calc pre-installed even in low end phones like expressmusic). You will get many free apps from Android for this phone and would enjoy (I also installed Chess - my fav pastime).
HTC brand itself is great and after using Nokia and Samsung for past few years (button phones of course), I find this is worth it. You will find very few service centres even in big cities like Mumbai for HTC (like u need to travel atleast 10 kms for the nearest service centre which is not the case with Nokia or Samsung). Still I am happy to do something different now with HTC.
All in all it is a great phone. Worth buying if u dont need video calling at this time when 3G is just launched in India and that too in few locations.
The phone is good looks feel features. I am just disappointed with its internal memory. Way too less if HTC wants to bring good...Read More
