Pros Great value, fantastic interface, good choice of apps, upgrade to 2.2 in the future, beautiful design and build quality, 3G and WiFi are fast
Cons Low screen resolution, camera sometimes takes poor photos in medium-low light conditions, can be slow, on screen keyboard isn't great
Summary I can't afford a high end smartphone but this phone is perfect for me. I can connect my social networking when I'm out and about and also browse the web. The apps are super useful and although not as refined as my iPod touch's apps, they're pretty good and work well.
The screen resolution makes for a mediocre on screen keyboard so if you have big hands this may not be for you. Also, the resolution means some apps wont play on the device.
If you're looking for a good value smartphone with some of the features of a high end one, this is for you. I've had mine a week now and I love it. I prefer it to the iPhone 3GS and it's half the price on a contract here in the UK!
Pros All of the standard smartphone and android gimmicks.Pretty neat interface. Cool widgets
Honestly can't think of anything else...
Cons Awkward shape, slippery & difficult to hold. Freezes constantly. Insensitive screen. Messages take forever to display. Shows your own replies as new texts. Clumsy keyboard. Drops calls. Music player has a bad layout. Volume control is terrible.
Summary I'm aware that it's an entry-level, but I've done a lot better for quite a bit cheaper on the smartphone side of things. I would honestly never get another HTC phone after owning this one. I know HTC have some high quality phones, and in comparison this one is just a toddler... but really, if you're going to do something do it right.
Previous to this phone I owned a Sony Ericsson Xperia, which was a cheaper, but much better entry-level smart phone.
Very often I feel like throwing this phone out of the window, under a speeding car, etc. I'm just glad I'll be getting a new phone soon.
Pros Pretty much of what it offers as a smartphone, being the first one I afforded!
Cons Battery life
Pros - 5MP Camera with EXTREMELY BRIGHT flash
- Sleek, brushed aluminium design
- HTC Sense - Has awesome features
- After updating to Android 2.2 - WiFi hotspot
- 3G reciever
- Capacitive Touch Screen
Cons - Not the best battery life
- CAN (not always) be laggy
Summary Overall, the HTC Wildfire is a good phone, IT DOES HAVE 3G (to those delusional people who think it doesn't), IT DOES HAVE A CAPACITIVE TOUCH SCREEN (how do you think it can use pinch-to-zoom?), and it sports a lot of great features that would normally be found on an $800 phone for only $249 (with Telstra). The only things that set it apart from a $800 smart-phone (eg. HTC desire) are the screen size (320x240 opposed to 800x480), and its processing power (528MHz opposed to 1GHz).
