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

HTC Wildfire review

 

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

Stylish ; Great battery life ; Affordable

Weak video playback ; Poor camcorder ; Low-res screen

HTC Wildfire Review

 

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 a cross between the Desire and Tattoo, with a little flair thrown in. This is a true innovation in budget friendly smartphones and where it skimps on price, it makes up for it in features.

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,...

HTC Wildfire Review

 

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...

Touchscreen is too close to the edge of the phone

HTC Wildfire Review

 

The HTC Wildfire under review today is the newest entry from HTC to hit the market as an alternate of HTC Tattoo that we reviewed earlier, both with respect to price and hardware similarities, as we shall see further ahead.

Review: Review of HTC's affordable Wildfire smartphone

 

The HTC Wildfire is one of HTC's latest Android smartphones that is aimed at the social networker who wants an affordable handset. Containing most of the HTC Desire's high end components, the Wildfire packs an impressive feature set, yet costs around a...

Full HTC Sense UI, great Facebook integration, great specs for the price

Low resolution display, sometimes slow text input, slow-ish processor

The right side of the handset is totally bare, but the left side is home to the volume rocker and micro-USB port used for charging and data. Atop the phone are the 3.5mm headphone port and power button, with the microphone pinhole and a lanyard fixing...
