4.0 out of 5 stars Great Smart Phone but not totally smart! 26 Jan. 2011
Let us deal with my only gripe first. A smart phone should be smart enough to allow you to create folders on your phone to enable you keep your photos/video in specific folders. The only way to create folders is by connecting your phone to your PC which is not always the most convenient thing. Now that that is done the good points, the phone has a good feel to it (you will probably need a case as it feels quite slim and is begging to be dropped), after the initial set up process was done I have found it to be a very user friendly phone. The resolution of the display when looking at photos could be better, but then it is half the price on PAYG than an iPhone or HTC Desire. You can't assign any musci you download as your notification sounds but there are applications you can download from the Android Market that allows you to modify music files and save them as a notification sound, the one I used is MP3 Ringtone Maker, works fine and is pretty easy to use. Do I regret my purchase? No not one bit. I would recommend you have a look at one if you have a friend who has one or in a shop.

5.0 out of 5 stars HTC Wildfire. WOW. 16 Nov. 2010
All I want to say is wow. I had a Nokia 5800 and this trumps it hands down. This phone has so many different features and so many apps/games you can download.

Sometimes I think that this is a major step up from the Nokia 5800. If you are thinking about getting it, just do it. It is well built and feels solid. For me the size is just right not too bulky. Battery life at this moment is much better than the 5800. Camera is good and so to is the video mode.

This does have its issues sometimes like freezing like most phones these days. The start up from when you touch the on button to when it fully loads up is longer than my previous phone. I don't like where the volume button is cause it is fiddly when you accidentally keep hitting it!

If you can't afford a desire then this is definitely best budget smart phone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great value and battery life 2 Feb. 2011
My previous phone was a Palm Pre which I was given for free. Whilst it was great to have a phone for free, and it did get me addicted to e-mail and internet access via my mobile, the battery life on that phone was so poor that I literally couldn't get through the day without finding somewhere to charge up my phone. Turning on wi-fi was guaranteed to have the battery gone in a few hours so, despite the fact that I liked the screen and the push out proper keyboard, I reluctantly looked around for something else.

I chose the HTC Wildfire primarily because it seemed the best value for money. So far, I've been really pleased with it. The battery life seems amazing compared to the Palm. I can use the internet, check e-mails all day and have wi-fi permanently on and still not get close to running out within a normal day - although I must say I'm not a heavy calls user so it might be different if you're on the phone all through the day.

The screen is not as good as the palm - you get what you pay for, but its more the clarity of the text rather than the screen size itself, so it's still good for looking at websites.

The keyboard is a touch screen version which has taken some getting used to, and wouldn't be great for those with big fingers and thumbs as it would be hard to type accurately with any speed. However, you can turn it sideways for a larger keyboard and it does bring up suggested words in a similar way to predictive texts.

All in all, really satisfied, only loses out very slightly on the screen text quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars great for the price 10 Dec. 2010
By Andy
really like this phone. i did have nokia N900, but the wildfire is better (there are more things you can do with it and much nicer touch interface - more responsive).It feels nice to hold, and seems to be built very well, screen resolution is not great though, but battery seems very good.Since the phone is really a budget phone, do not expect instant loading of some apps / programs also.
if your only used to using non android phones, you might find it slightly complicated to use at first. After a day or so you will know how to use it and it will seem easier to use than non android phones (not including iphone, since that is by far the easiest phone to use). Its the sort of phone you will like playing around with and trying things out. Lots of good apps to download.
this has the android 2.1 software and AFAIK there is no update available to 2.2 software, not sure if there will be. i wonder if its worth waiting for a budget phone with android 2.2 if you are thinking of buying.

for me this is the perfect phone if you do not want to spend too much.

i also recieved the android 2.2 update on Christmas Day.

1.0 out of 5 stars Laggy and switches itself off frequently 12 Mar. 2012
This phone is a real bottom-end Android smartphone. The processor is slow, so the unit is always about 10 seconds behind you on whatever you do, even with hardly any apps installed on it. You pretty much need to switch everything off on it - backlighting, wifi, etc - if you want to get the battery to last more than a day without recharging it.

The most important issue with this phone is that it frequently (daily for my 18 month old one) gets hot and then just switches itself off. So a really bad phone to have if people ever need to get hold of you, as it can be off for hours before you realise. The only way to get it to go back on is to take the battery out and restart it that way. I have sent mine back to vodafone, but received it back after just over a week with a note telling me that there's nothing wrong with it.

Remember - its cheap for a reason.
