HTC Wildfire S review

HTC Wildfire S review Back in February of this year HTC announced a number of new handsets including 3 that were direct upgrades/replacements of existing models. We’ve already had a look at the HTC Desire S and the HTC Incredible S so now it’s time for the HTC Wildfire S to go on test.

Its predecessor, the HTC Wildfire, has been on sale for almost a year and sales have been good for HTC as the handsets has been available both SIM free and through a number of UK operators both PAYG and on contract. In fact, as an entry level Android handset, I’d say that the Wildfire was responsible for introducing a whole new group of users to the wonders of Android.

The Wildfire S is similar to last years model, virtually the same size and just a little bit lighter. Main difference is in the screen being twice the number of pixels at 320×480 HVGA resolution but still remaining 3.2″ in size.

HTC have also done away with the optical trackpad in each of this years models and the Wildfire S is no different so the area below the screen is a lot more ‘clean’ if a little bland.

Other changes go beyond the cosmetic and we’ll look at these throughout the review so be sure to read on to learn more.
