The Good The HTC Wildfire S is a decent phone at a bargain-basement price. Despite its size, it's a full-fledged smartphone, which includes the user-friendly HTC Sense interface. For those wary of bulkier smartphones, the HTC Wildfire S offers a refreshing departure.
The Bad If you're used to any normal-size smartphone, this device is going to feel tiny. The small screen makes Web surfing, watching videos, and playing games tough. If you have large hands, steer clear.
The Bottom Line If you can get past its small size, the HTC Wildfire S is a bargain for first-time smartphone customers with few-to-no expectations.
HTC Wildfire S
If you think smartphones have gotten entirely too big, you may want to consider the HTC Wildfire S. The phone is diminutive by regular smartphone standards--it makes the compact iPhone 4S look towering--but it makes for a nice transition if you're used to a petite flip phone.
In fact, if you're looking to jump on the smartphone bandwagon, you may not need all the horsepower and features that come with higher-end devices. After all, those also tend to come with higher-end prices. And that's where the HTC Wildfire S comes in.
