This is Jessica Dolcourt for CNET.
Today I'm taking a first look at the HTC Wildfire S for MetroPSC.
Now, this is almost exactly the same phone as the Wildfire S for T-Mobile and for U.S. cellular.
One of the biggest characteristics is the small size.
The petite size is getting some (tenses?) because it is very easy to carry around and not everybody wants a phone the size of a miniature tablet.
But it also bad because the 3.2-inch HVGA screen could be hard at times to read and there is less screen space for typing.
Overall, this is a well-built phone anyway you look at it.
It's very solid.
It looks very pretty and premium.
And it comes in this white color for MetroPCS.
It runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread with an older version of HTC Sense On here.
That's the custom interface that HTC uses on top of Android.
There's a 5 mega pixel camera with a flash then it has a 600 megahertz processor.
So this is definitely not the fastest phone on the block.
Interestingly, this is the first HTC phone for MetroPCS.
I think this is a great thing because HTC typically makes good phones and I'd love to see more high quality devices of the sort with the carrier.
Unfortunately, MetroPCS is not known for having the fastest speed because it doesn't have a 3G network and because this is not one of their 4G LTE phones, so it will work very slowly.
If you're looking for a phone with speedier data, you should probably keep looking.
The phone costs $180 without a contract.
