The HTC Wildfire S succeeds the previously launched HTC Wildfire. However, with Wildfire S, HTC have plugged the loopholes pointed at its predecessor like an enhanced screen resolution and processor. The Wildfire S is a full touch mobile phone that comes with the latest version of the Android operating system, the Gingerbread (Android 2.3). This HTC smartphone is powered by a 600 MHz Qualcomm Scorpion processor and has 512 MB of RAM onboard.

The HTC Wildfire S sports a 3.2-inch TFT screen with resolution of 480 x 320 pixels, which is a step ahead from the measly 240 x 320 pixel resolution of the Wildfire. Like other HTC devices, the Wildfire S is also adorned with the proprietary Sense UI that brings in new features like improved settings in the notification bar and updating of your app drawer as per items downloaded. Also Friend Stream feature in the UI brings all the updates of your friends on social networks such as Facebook, Twitter or Flickr together in one screen.

A 5 megapixel camera is loaded into the Wildfire S with auto focus and LED flash capabilities, allowing images shot in low light to be clearer and less grainy. You can also record videos through the phone camera at 24 fps.

Design

This Android device has a metallic finish and small frame making it fit snugly into your palms or pockets. Weighing 105 g, the TFT capacitive touchscreen of the Wildfire S supports 256 K colors and features the regular sensors such as accelerometer, proximity sensor and ambient light sensor.

Storage and Battery

The HTC handset ships with internal memory of 512 MB. The Wildfire S is compatible with microSD 2.0 card, using which the memory of the phone can be expanded up to 32 GB. The battery used in the HTC Wildfire S is a standard 1230 mAh Li-Ion that gives talk time of up to 4 hours and standby time of 120 hours.

Connectivity and Features

Users can access Internet on the Wildfire S through GPRS, 3G, Wi-Fi and EDGE. You can share your Internet connectivity with other devices, thanks to the Wi-Fi hotspot feature present in the phone. Connectivity options include Bluetooth, USB and a 3.5 mm audio jack. Location based services of the HTC mobile phone are A-GPS which ensures you are always on track. The handset has access to the Android Market, from where you can download apps of your choice.

Honest Review

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....

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.

Hardware:
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.

Battery Life:
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.

Camera:
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.

Apps:
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.

Using Wildfire S for last 9 months...

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.

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.

'Good' But Not 'Great'

If you are one of those who wants people looking at your phone when you take it out of that pouch (You would surely need that, because protection for the screen is minimal) , go for this phone and if looks don't matter to you so much, I would advice you to stay away.
I call it the 'sophisticated baby', its sleek, its classy, its enticing and it surely has that 'Aww' factor.

I call it the 'sophisticated baby', its sleek, its classy, its enticing and it surely has that 'Aww' factor.
Why should I buy?(it might convince you, why not to buy?)
- Looks! Looks! and Looks! Its closest competitor 'Samsung Galaxy Ace' can beat it in many aspects but not on Looks! this phone beats many models of HTC itself, and other manufacturers on looks, hands down. This baby stands out.
- The 5 MP Camera is excellent in natural light and gives good high resolution snaps but there are some major hiccups in no light or low light surroundings.Actually under insufficient light you have to be really intutive while clicking a pic (guessing the frame) because all you see in the screen is nothing (Major flaw).
-The sound quality of this phone is really good! but the problem is the volume, its surprisingly low, if you find yourself mostly at noisy places, get ready to apologise to many callers over not attending their phone call.They may not understand, that you never heard the phone ringing :).If using vibration mode irritates you, please give this model a miss.The headphones provided with this set is Awesome! makes up for the low speaker volume of the phone for me.
-The screen resolution is really good and the viewing experience is satisfying.
-The touch is nice but if you are going to use this phone in humid conditions where you may sweat a lot, the touch becomes resistive once the screen is covered with sweat :) (personal experience.That is, using it in Chennai was sometimes irritating but in Bangalore, it works fine).
-Good processor! There is no Lagging problem with this model but the Internal memory is really low, beacuase their is just 150MB Internal storage.(the OS takes up the rest of the space)
-Battery Life is reasonable and would be sufficient for a sane user. For Insane one's I cant comment.
In my view (after 8 months of use), in its price range its a 'Good Buy', not a 'Great Buy'.Nowadays when such innovation is going on in the handset market, with new models coming up every other day, anybody who can afford this phone would move onto a new phone in like 14 to 24 months. So, why not go for looks, than quality in features? but then again make your choice depending upon the kind of usage for the product.
Thanks! Feel free to give feedback on my feedback :)

CONS:
512MB Memory is insufficient -bought a 32GB Micro SD card from Flipkart but cannot move most apps to the SD Card without rooting the phone (which is currently not possible for the Wildfire S)
Phone often needs to be restarted or cache cleared under heavy usage.
Speaker in an awkward location and in landscape orientation, often gets blocked by fingers. Sound gets muted if placed on the bed.
Mixes up all my Facebook, Twitter, phone and Email contacts by trying to unify them.
Very average battery life, background apps eat up the battery. With everything off and playing angry birds Rio, I reached low battery within a few hours from a full charge.
FM Radio is a joke, can't find any stations while I can with my Sony Walkman and Eton solar Radio.

Good features for the price, however I've ordered an original HTC car charger from the UK as once I put in a SIM, I don't trust the battery to last more than a few hours with GPS, WiFi and 3G on.

One of the best Android Phones in sub 15K category

This is one of the great Android Phones available in sub 15K category. When I say great, I mean overall looks, ease of use, performance and not just how many apps or games the mobile can handle.

First of all the Pros:

1. Stunning look. The size of the phone is perfect for my palm and the screen looks bright and big enough. For those fanatics who want BIG screen on a mobile better look for Samsung Note or buy a laptop.

2. HTC Sense is state-of-the art. HTC adds a lot of additional features (with common Android features) which enhance the overall look and feel of the interface. You will...

2. HTC Sense is state-of-the art. HTC adds a lot of additional features (with common Android features) which enhance the overall look and feel of the interface. You will feel the difference if you have been a Samsung or Sony Ericsson user with Andriod O/S.

3. I like the Camera. Good resoulution (5 MP), Auto-Focus (yahoo!) enable, and LED flash. You can't get a better camera on your phone at this price.

4. Sound Quality: Awesome. Although the bundled earphone is of good quality, do go for a premium in-ear headset. If you are a true music lover you will really praise the sound quality and HTC player which will remind you of Sony Ericsson's Walkman series.

5. Built: Excellent. Way ahead than other manufacturers. It is stylish and sturdy at the same time. The display is made of Gorilla glass (but it is always better to have a screen guard on). Looks like the body is made with a mix of superior ABS and Polycarbonate plastic.

Cons:

There are aren;t many. I felt that the battery could have been a little better (1500 mAh) as this is a smart phone with bigger display and non AMOLED.

I have read many reviews and I find some fanatics comments where people expect a super computer embedded in a 12K-13K phone. Ridiculous. If you are a game freak, go for expensive phones in 25K-35K category. If you want1 1000000 apps you better buy a super computer.

I am rating 4 out of 5 stars just beacuse of the battery back up and nothing else. It is advisable to carry the charger with you. (very nice looking charger which can be plugged in AC socket as well as your computer).

I bought this last year from flipkart at around 11.5k, the price dropped drastically just after that. Flipkart's delivery was quick and appreciable.
