“Good all rounder”

Written on: 06/06/2012 by idontbeleevit (0 reviews written)

I have only owned a wildfire s for a couple of months, having previously had only cheap phones. I like it ery much but at first thought I would struggle to get used to it. The battery does run low easily but I have found turning the screen brightness down helps this a lot. Overall I am pleased but I am not a teenager and am very new to the world of apps… Read Full Review

“Nice little phone”

Written on: 01/06/2012 by TwinCam (33 reviews written)

Htc Wildfire S is a great little phone it does everything you want in a smart phone and has nice touches like htc sense. Its well built and is pleasing to the eye. It's drawbacks are, small screen, battery doesn't last long with lots of use but i guess most smart phones are like this, the cpu struggles at times and more so of course when running lots of apps. Despite its limitations i still strongly recommend, if you can find a good deal… Read Full Review

“waste of time!”

Written on: 25/05/2012 by sarah2712 (1 review written)

i hate this phone. i've resorted to using the phone i had previously cause the wildfire has caused me so many problems. it's slow, doesn't have much memory and the screen resolution is awful. the biggest problem i've had is the fact that it wouldn't let me delete text messages, but wouldn't let me receive them either cause it was telling me that there wasn't enough memory for anymore. pretty stupid. don't buy one… Read Full Review

“Lost it down the sofa for a year...didn't bat an eye lid. ”

Written on: 15/04/2012

I've unfortunatley had the HTC wildfire over a year now, when I first bought it I thought it was the best thing in the world, especially for its money, however within just a week I was starting to see its faults. For starters, being a teenager it couldnt cope with mass amounts of socialising and using apps whilst bored. My battery life never lasted me through to the next morning, so I HAD to charge it every night. Secondly, it constantly needs updating in some way or another, which is… Read Full Review

“Best Value Mobile Phone Ever”

Written on: 27/03/2012 by lukefreeman (1 review written)

This phone is the best value phone that has ever existed. It can do absolutely anything that any top of the range smartphone can do. The screen is quite a low resolution compared to top of the range phones and its CPU is pretty slow in comparison and this can mean quite a few apps are not compatible with the phone. Also the internal memory is very small and although you can put in a memory card to boost storage, all installed apps use internal memory (even if they are installed to the SD… Read Full Review

“HTC Wildfire”

Written on: 09/02/2012 by nixonrussel03 (3 reviews written)

HTC Wildfire is one of the most easy-to-use androids. The navigation of the mobile is very simplistic which is good. You can easily move around the different screens and applications. Worth the value … Read Full Review

Written on: 05/01/2012 by muralis (2 reviews written)

i got the HTC wildfire at an offer from my phone provider.the prices was pretty decent so i thought i wud try it since my last phone died on me.the phone worked okay for the first 3 or 4 months but then it started becoming slower and slower.apps take 20secs to load,the browser is pretty slow and the battery lasts max 2 days. if you're connected all the times to the internet, the battery last 1 day. the resolution is the smallest out of all the htc i came across, but the many apps work okay so… Read Full Review

“Good but not without its faults”

Written on: 26/11/2011 by beeuk32 (1 review written)

Very stirdy phone with a massive range of apps, due it being on android system. Screen resolution very good and clear, music player is user friendly but does not sound all that great. Overall layout and style of the phone has pleased me no end and I will miss it, when I get another upgrade. The only majour problem with the phone, that has botherd me and to be honest its not really affected my phone, but my partners; is that there is a problem with deleting old messages. When any attempt is… Read Full Review

“Not a patch on the Desire!!”

Written on: 10/11/2011 by alialiali (9 reviews written)

First of all I will go into a short explanation of how I came about owning the wildfire. I had the HTC Desire on contract and whilst it did have little niggles that annoyed me I was overall very impressed with the phone. However, my 2 year old daughter + a bath full of water + a poor insurance policy on the phone = a very dead HTC Desire and no cover to get a new one. With another 9 months to go before my contract was due for an upgrade I was having a little look around for a cheapish new phone… Read Full Review

“Blood pressure too low? A HTC Wildfire will soon sort...”

Written on: 14/09/2011 by Nickwilko (1 review written)

Whilst it is no doubt a good thing to have fairly reliable access to the internet whilst on the go, I feel that after owning a HTC Wildfire for over 12 months, the price I've have had to pay for this access (because I'm stuck in a contract) is increased blood pressure and an overall lowered tolerance threshold! To return to the mild-mannered individual I believe I was before, I'm strongly considering digging out and returning my good old Nokia 6230i. The main reasons for my frustrations are… Read Full Review

“HTC...Don't Bother.”

Written on: 04/09/2011 by drinmurf (14 reviews written)

I found the Wildfire disappointing. Graphics were average and the choice of apps on Android is very limited. The stlye is lovely, feels heavy and sturdy but slim and sleek at the same time. Camera was 5mp, which was pathetic. I would not buy a HTC as they are constantly crashing, freezing and deciding to shut down… Read Full Review

“The HTC Wildfire is a decent phone. However since I...”

Written on: 29/04/2011

The HTC Wildfire is a decent phone. However since I got it it has slowed down very very much. Especially the keyboard lags, and the letters only appear a few seconds after I have typed them. Booting up the phone takes an age and a half. Texting is a nightmare, both because of the keyboard but also because generally the messages program works extremely slowly. It is very noticeable, especially after a few weeks use, that this is a lower-end smartphone.

Having said all this however, it is packed… Read Full Review

“The HTC Wildfire is one of the newest HTC handheld...”

Written on: 07/02/2011 by mac4221 (2 reviews written)

The HTC Wildfire is one of the newest HTC handheld mobile phones to be released from Android. Retailing for around $299 AU, this phone, in a nutshell, is a good phone that does what a phone should do. However, the resolution of the screen is much less than its brethren, like the HTC Hero or the Desire. This was made as a phone for teenagers in my opinion, it is very much social networking related with friend stream allowing you to view twitter and Facebook all at once. It does however, not… Read Full Review

“HTC wildfire a3333 ”

HTC wildfire a3333

I've been using this phone for almost a month now. Its user friendly and great value for money. Excellent phone. Upgraded it to Android 2.2. Works perfectly. Rate it 9/10.

At first glance, the Wildfire's handsome and familiar-looking device.You can see several elements borrowed from the company's two other Android handsets -- touch buttons and the reassuring back texture from the Nexus One, although the buttons don't work as well on the big daddy; optical trackpad… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/11/2010 by sausagecreature (2 reviews written)

HTC Wildfire: Great phone, battery drains quickly if using all facilities (i.e. GPS, Mobile internet, Bluetooth),but this is common with all smart phones.

Tech support at HTC are sadly not great. They are nice to deal with, they sound proffessional and helpful, they answer the phone quite quickly most of the time.
BUT....they fall down on actually "committing to what they promise" or being able to fix things:


I have an issue when using the phone as an internet modem, after a few days the… Read Full Review

Fantastic phone, really is the best I've had - so easy to use, and Apps/internet works well. Able to personalise the phone much more than other phones.

Great phonem would recommend to anyone.

Only slight criticism would be the phonebook pulling in all facebook contacts, makes it difficult to organise… Read Full Review

“Great phone in fact the best phone I have ever had,...”

Written on: 02/09/2010

Great phone in fact the best phone I have ever had, very impressed with it. Doing this review on it! Small, light, more pocket friendly than other bigger screened phones, the trade off is the screen resolution but I have not found that a problem. Good value as you get a lot of phone and apps for your money....!
