Front

We've seen HTC's Wildfire S both in its unlocked glory and for T-Mobile. Now it was time we gave the U.S. Cellular variety a turn.

Petite

The phone is tiny by many standards, but we've also had readers confirm that not everyone is into mammoth phones. It runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread, but is more entry-level in all its features.

Typing

The smaller virtual keyboard could easily get in the way of larger hands.

Camera

The 5-megapixel camera took decent pictures, but they weren't the best we've seen.

Build quality

As usual, the Wildfire is a well-constructed device, which is one of HTC's hallmarks.
