HTC Wildfire S

The HTC Wildfire S for Virgin Mobile is very similar to the T-Mobile version that we reviewed a few months ago. It has a very tiny footprint and fits easily in small hands. It only has a 3.2-inch display.

Wildfire S Camera

The HTC Wildfire S has a 5-megapixel camera on the back. The overall build quality is solid, and it's clearly well designed.

Slim side

The HTC Wildfire S is quite slim as well, at around 0.49-inch thick. On the side here is a volume rocker along with a microUSB port.

Tiny keyboard

You might find typing on the small virtual keyboard a little difficult.
