    I must admit that I bought my HTC Wildfire in a panic after damaging my HTC Hero beyond economical repair plus working away from home for a long time ruled out the chances of finding the ever popular SIM free HTC Desire or HTC Legend in a normal high street store so I bought the HTC Wildfire knowing that if I didn't like it I could take it back and exchange it for a HTC Desire or HTC Legend and simply pay the difference.

    After playing around with it for an hour or two I actually grew to like the Wildfire - it was sleek, well finished, felt great to hold and it seemed to respond faster than my HTC Hero, needless to say I ended keeping my Wildfire for a number of valid reasons;

    "5 MegaPixel camera with LED flash and autofocus"
    I'm not a photographer or an expert but I've taken a few photos with the HTC Wildfire's snapper and its pretty good at taking pictures. The software is easy to use and its quite fast as well.

    "Android 2.1 with HTC Sense"
    The combination of Google's brilliant operating system and HTC's excellent skinning software has catapulted handsets like the Wildfire, the Hero, the Legend and the Desire into the iPhone league and arguably way beyond the Apple offering. Slick looking HTC widgets and apps such as a choice of twelve beautifully crafted live clocks to put on the home screen as you see fit, info sharing widgets such as the stocks, news, animated weather, web bookmarks, email, SMS messaging, twitter and facebook offerings to mention just a few.

    There are plenty of phones out there that will offer something better than the Wildfire. Bigger screen - better resolution - faster processor etc - but they all come at a price. The Wildfire comes in at a brilliant price point and offers a great feature set and a mature user interface (HTC Sense UI). If you trawl through the on line reviews, the biggest criticism is that it only offers a QVGA low res screen. Personally, I decided that it probably wouldn't matter to me as I'm unlikely to watch full length movies on the thing - but it's plenty good enough for you tube and web browsing in my opinion. I'm not disappointed.

    The social networking integration is great. Friendstream is a great way to keep track of Twitter and Facebook updates. Smarter still, the phone matches your facebook friends with your contacts - and when they call, you get their latest facebook update and also notification if it's close to their birthday.

    As you would expect with an Android handset - gmail integration is there (mail / contacts and calendar). It also connects to Exchange Active sync, which I'm using although it's a Zarafa / Z-Push backend in reality but I have absolutely no problems with it. The calendar appears to aggregate all these sources (including Facebook) in to one so you don't need to check a separate calendar for each.

    The Wildfire UI can be customised with widgets and apps. Don't be too worried if you've not faced this before - essentially you can put what you like / where you like on one of the seven Sense UI screens and make the phone your own.

    The application support is great. Today, for instance, I installed the latest Google Maps with voice search and also Navigation. The inbuilt GPS allowed me to use this as a Sat Nav unit.

    I have a HTC Legend myself, and totally love it, it's truely a great phone, so good that the missus was always on it. To fix this problem, I decided to get her a HTC Wildfire on a cheap T-Mobile contract (£10/month).

    The phone itself comes with everything you would expect from a HTC Android handset, but you do have to bear in mind this is a BUDGET android handset, so it's never going to match he giddy heights of the Desire and Legend phones.

    featurewise, it's complete, it has GPS, you can use GoogleMaps and Navigation, it's got Bluetooth, it's got Wifi and 3G, it does everything my HTC Legend does.

    There is very little not to like, the build quality is pretty good (a couple of realy minor niggles - like the rear cover fit, but again, this is a budget Android handset, so it's forgiveable).

    The important bit, the missus LOVES it, she has no problems using it, this being her first smartphone, coming from a Nokia 6300, so is over the moon with it.

    However... (and this is my reason for not giving it the full 5 stars), the display. It's a low-res TFT display, whilst not bad, it's slightly worse than I had anticipated, however a slightly bigger problem (at least for the moment), is that because of this, it does not currently have the full range of Android marketplace applications open to it (for the Techies: Android Marketplace applications have to be compiled for Android 1.6 or newer to support low-res displays, and alot of applications are still targeted at Android 1.5 or newer).
