HTC Wildfire

 

Designed for international markets, the HTC Wildfire is a compact, budget-friendly Android phone packed with features, but you can find similar devices in North America for less on contract and with added 3G support.

The HTC Wildfire features a compact and solid design. As the successor to the Tattoo, it offers an updated OS, a 5-megapixel camera, and good call quality

Features a lower-resolution screen. The smartphone can be sluggish at times. Lacks support for North American 3G bands. Camera quality was rather subpar

HTC Wildfire ( Alltel Wireless)

 

The HTC Wildfire features a compact and sturdy design. The Android 2.1 smartphone has a very affordable price tag and offers a 5-megapixel camera and full wireless options.

The Wildfire has a small, lower-resolution screen. The smartphone can be a bit sluggish.

For Alltel customers on a budget, the HTC Wildfire is a very affordable and decently featured Android phone, but it comes at the cost of screen quality and processor speed.

HTC Wildfire (black, unlocked)

 

In April, HTC took to its Facebook page to ask its fans for help in picking a name for its next phone--a phone that the company described as "playful and full of youth." The end result was the HTC Wildfire, which launched in Europe and Asia in mid-May....

HTC Wildfire review: Desire Mini

 

Occasionally HTC takes a little break from high-end smartphones and dips its toes in the waters of the lower midrange. The HTC Wildfire is a down-sized, down-clocked and down-priced version of the HTC Desire. If Sony Ericsson can do it with the X10...

Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support ; 3G with 7.2 Mbps HSDPA ; Android OS v2.1 (Éclair) with Sense UI ; 3.2" capacitive touchscreen of QVGA resolution ; Multi-touch support ; Qualcomm MSM 7225 528 MHz CPU, 384 MB RAM, 512 MB ROM ; 5 megapixel auto-focus...

Poor screen image quality, QVGA doesn't do Android OS and the display size justice ; No video-call camera or videocalling whatsoever ; CIF@15fps video recording (352 x 288 pixels) is below par ; No voice dialing ; No DivX or XviD video support out of...

But while the Desire was something that easily snatched everybody's attention, the Wildfire is a bit more toned down despite its fire-some name

If phones could make babies, then this HTC Wildfire would indubitably be the love child of the Desire and Nexus One. But of course, the humdrum reality is

The HTC Wildfire is the company's second attempt at a budget Android device, its predecessor being the underspecified and relatively unloved Tattoo . Packing the same Sense UI as more expensive siblings like the Legend and Desire, together with a...

HTC Wildfire Review

 

HTC is on sabbatical from its high-end line with the Wildfire. There is nothing really wild or fiery in the specs of this mid-end Android handset. Compared to most of the company's Android offerings, it naturally has smaller screen with paltry...

HTC Wildfire Preview: Best Budget Friendly Smartphone

 

The HTC Wildfire is making waves and fanning flames for all Android users. With its Desire-like looks and very wallet friendly price, the Wildfire is sure to grab a lot of attention, not to mention satisfied customers.

Overall, while the HTC Wildfire is a budget friendly smartphone, it does not look or act like one. However, the Wildfire receives four stars overall, because of the trade offs in lieu of the price. Nevertheless, with only a few trade offs to mention,...

There's something to be said for minimalist gadgets. Anything with just one purpose is usually built pretty well for that purpose, which is why today's dumbphones are way better at making phone calls than smartphones. At the same time, we all want...
