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.

 HTC wildfire Review

| | See all IanDeee's reviews (1)

Phone arrived a little late due to the one I ordered not passing the delivery inspection, but a replacement was sent out a day or so later so all in all good service from them.

As for the phone, well the instructions were in French, but honestly, two seconds on Google and you can download the English PDF version of the user manual, so no worries there.

About the phone. I researched a fair bit before buying a Wildfire S and I read a fair few comments that stated that the battery is terrible, only lasting a day tops. The Sim Fee option doesnt work with EU Sim cards. But the winner whine was the phone is slow responding, apps running slow etc. Well, its a phone, not a quad core Pentium.

So on that note here is my feedback after using the phone. I travel a lot in the EU and have sims for Germany (Vodafone) and for France (again Vodafone). Both sims work fine in this phone so Im not too sure what people are on about unless they are using a different service provider and having troubles there.

The battery I find is very good. If you hammer the hell out of it, then yes it will go flat in a day. But you have to be using the phone like a laptop, that is, wifi on, gps on, writing emails, txts playing about with apps etc. Well, Ok, most laptops I use only last about 3-4 hours under that kind of use, so having a days worth out of a phone isnt really that bad is it? On the flip side, Ive turned off the wifi, gps etc and just used it like phone. That is, one or two txts a day, probably about 15mins worth a calls a day, the odd picture for work (no way around that) and Ive gotten 4 days worth out of the battery.

I find the phone very quick to respond, there is hardly and delay between selecting a function and it being executed. Id say it was on par with the iPhone and other high end smartphones. That being said, Im not one for playing games or using many of the apps you can install so I can really give any feedback in those areas.

One last whine I was reading a lot of was the lack of internal memory, well a 16Gb SD card sorted that out. And yes you can install apps to the SD card rather then to the phones memory. I cant quite see as to what people were moaning about regarding the lack on internal memory.

An excellent phone, highly recommend it.

Lost my iPhone on holiday so purchased this and continued my contract. Have been counting down the days until I could upgrade my phone again as this handset is terrible.

Battery life is woeful, touch screen is extremely slow and unresponsive. When trying to answer calls it often rejects calls when trying to unlock handset. Typing texts is painful as handset cannot keep up with the speed your fingers press the keypad. Also, trying to resend failed texts messages often results in you spending a good minute trying to get the phone to do what you want it too as it often just highlights one word of the text you've pressed.

Recently my phone has decided to enable car mode (which I have no idea how its managed to do this as I have no car and have never activated Bluetooth on it) and all phone calls automatically begin in loudspeaker.

The only reason i've not given this phone 1 star is because it does, sometimes, make phone calls and send texts.

 Warning! Low internal memory

If your looking to install loads of apps look somewhere else.
Its internal memory is only 512Mb and loads of it is taken up by its bloatware.
Other than its fine as regular cellphone.

 My lovely little Android!!

Lets start buy saying that I think around 200 pound is still a lot to pay for a phone (even if it is an Android). Reviews on other sites have said it's low to mid range and you get what you pay for. Well I'm getting on a bit now and think you get quite a lot on this phone. It does everything I could want, and I love it. It may not be as big as say a Desire or an iPhone, but then I'm a man and don't carry a hand bag, so I need something that fits comfortably in my pocket. The only slight niggle is that the speaker could be better (louder) but you can get apps to repeat your ring/message tones, so that isn't a problem. I also got a protective cover and screen cover so it is now perfect. If you've got 300 to 500 pound to spend, great, get a better model, but for all of you out there who can't justify spending that kind of money this phone is ideal. Oh, and let's not forget it's main job is as a Phone!

 queitly brillant wildfire s :)

I have spent ages looking for a new mobile that was not apple iPhone prices but still did everything an iPhone could. And this is it. You may get some reviews suggesting it is very slow and yes sometimes it does have a go slow moment but its only a couple of seconds . Overall this phone is brilliant it does everything anyone would want unless your a mega gamer. And a feature for me that I really love is its not a massive huge phone that takes an entire pocket up. The desire is well over 100pound more and I really don't think your gaining a lot for that money vie only difference is a faster processor and a larger screen. Wildfire has had the up grade it needed wildfire s (:
