HTC Wildfire S Features

The HTC Wildfire S is the excellent entry-level smartphone that is the successor to the compact and feature-packed Wildfire from 2010. Though an introductory Android model the Wildfire S does not compromise on smartphone features or quality; it's tiny, curved chassis is satisfyingly solid, and fits snugly in your hand.

Inside the high-quality design the Wildfire S builds on the features of its predecessor with a 3.2 inch HVGA touchscreen which has twice the resolution of the original, plus the latest version of the Android operating system (Gingerbread) under the hood. The 600MHz processor might not be the biggest, but paired with HTC's Sense interface on the Android platform they give a good performance in all the smartphone fundamentals such as web browsing and app usage. The Wildfire S also has a 5 megapixel camera, GPS, WiFi (b/g/n), Bluetooth 3.0 and a memory card slot, meaning it can more than hold its own against rival mid-level smartphones on the market.

Features you'll love:

  • Small, lightweight entry-level Android phone with full smartphone functionality
  • Lovely design provides excellent build-quality and reassuringly solid feel
  • Clear and bright 3.2 inch touchscreen with twice the resolution of the original Wildfire
  • 5 megapixel camera, WiFi and all your modern smartphone fundamentals in tiny package
  • Runs on the latest version of Android (Gingerbread) with HTC's user-friendly Sense interface and bags of features designed to delight you

What we say:

If you're looking for an Android smartphone on a budget or one that you can hide in the palm of your hand, but don't want to lose any of the latest smartphone features, HTC's Wildfire S is a great choice. While it won't break any records for speed, it still runs impressively smoothly, and with it's unibody design the Wildfire S feels good sitting in your palm. Many will love its compact size, cute looks and full Android experience.

Manufacturer's description

Here's an idea: Express yourself
A phone that reveals the real you

Surf in style:
Your HTC Wildfire S knows that the online world, is your world. Being offline is not an option. With the HTC Wildfire S, surfing the web is easy. Enjoy multi-window browsing, watch text resize automatically on screen as you zoom in and out, and simply highlight text to quickly look up what you're reading about on Google, Wikipedia or YouTube. You're as connected on the move as you are at home.

Snap, tag and share:
Whether it's a photo you've snapped with your HTC Wildfire S camera, or one you've received, it's easy to share it on Facebook and other social networks. Select any photo you want on your phone, upload it and tag it for all your friends to see.

Share apps in a snap
The Android market has over 100 thousand of the latest applications, games and tools that you can download straight to your phone and easily share with your friends. So you can fill your phone and your life with everything you love.

HTC Sense
HTC Sense is an experience designed around many little insightful ideas. Ideas that seem so simple, you think "why hasn't any one else thought of that? It just makes sense." It's a phone experience full of lots of little surprises, delighting you every time.

Express yourself:
Make the HTC Wildfire S your very own. Express your personality and customise it with colorful skins, soundsets and widgets - all available to download directly from your phone. Along with inspiring scenes to match your social, entertainment or more serious side, for those that have one.

An icebreaker for your calls:
Wouldn't it be handy if your Caller ID not only displayed a name and number, but also vital stuff like their Facebook status and birthday? HTC Wildfire S does just that, so when you look to see who's calling, you know to say "Happy Birthday" the moment you answer the phone.

All your friends' updates in one place:
Friend Stream groups all your friends' social network updates together, so you never miss what's most important to you. Whether they're on Facebook, Twitter or Flickr, you can keep tab of all your friends' tweets and photos, all at once and on the same screen. Plus a single update from you can be sent to each of your networks all in one go.

All your email accounts in one inbox:
If you juggle more than one email account, the HTC Wildfire S will merge them together so you never miss a thing. They're color coded so you know what's what, and you can sort them by importance, groups or content. It's one easy access point for all your incoming and outgoing mail.

I was loathe to abandon my trusty Nokia for a smartphone, but was impressed by the HTCs my friends were spotting. I have now had this phone for 6 months, and haven't found it to be lacking in any regard. It is so lovely and small also.
