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

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


HTC Wildfire running on Android OS (2.1 Eclair) and powered by a 528MHz Qualcomm MSM7225 chipset, features quad-band GSM and 900/2100 MHz WCDMA/HSDPA support, a 3.2-inch QVGA TFT non-AMOLED display, 384MB of RAM, a 5MP camera, 512MB of flash storage, a...

Responsive touchscreen

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.

HTC Wildfire


Inside is a fairly modest 528MHz processor, quite a lot slower than the Desire and even the HTC Legend, and the same as found in the HTC Tattoo. The specification and anticipated Q3 release indicate that this might be the replacement for the Tattoo,...
