Description
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.

BEWARE: MAJOR FLAW IN THE PHONE

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 ...

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 al...

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 informati...

'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.
Why should I buy?(it might convince you, why not to buy?)
- Looks! Looks! and Looks! Its closest competitor 'Samsung Gal...

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 featur...

A good phone

I wanted something to upgrade for my wife with a budget of around 5-6k. After a lot of reading and reviewing mostly on flipcart and youtube I came to a conclusion that I could get one with a decent quality at that range and so I pushed it up to 10-15k. Thatâ??s when I came across the Wildfire S. Now believe me at this prices range there are a whole lot of Samsungs and Sonyâ??s.

Now I knew Nokia wasnâ??t a contender due to its OS being sluggish and Microsoftâ??s mango being new, I didnâ??t w...
