I bought my wildfire s a month ago.And i am not facing any problem so far. If anybody facing battery packup problem please download "juice defender" and install it. Believe me guys it is too good. It literally increases your battery backup. I recently upgraded it to 2.3.5. After i upgraded some new things have been added such as lock screen market updata and internal memory's been increased. But i faced a little problem after upgraded like phone is being slow sometimes.so i raised a question regarding downgrade the os to htc customer care. The below details are said by htc customer care people.PPl if anybody faceing the same problem please follow the same step.

I DID THE SAME THING.NOW IT IS WORKING FINE.
sam, 29 Dec 2011how can i update my htc wildfire s to icesandwich?HTC has released Android 2.3.5 upgrade a while back. So far no plans from HTC for ICS. But I am not sure whether Wildfire S processor and hardware is compatible for ICS upgrade.
Recently, I have seen that XDA developer deployed ICS ROM in Galaxy ACE which is having the same processors and hardware. That is just a developer work.
Therefore, I could not confirm whether ICS supported in Wildfire s, even it is supported, it is in HTC hands to provide the upgrade.
If you have no fear to tryout with ICS and if your wildfire S is S-OFF type, you can try with ICS ROM. But it is all your risk, your phone may become a piece of usless brick!
So far I haven’t heard anyone done ICS treatment for Wildfire S
Please dont try these and waste your money uless you are a developer who knows the risks very well.
Better I would suggest to wait for HTC upgrade plan.
really iam a htc fan i bought this phone 2 mopnths back this time htc make fans custommers unsatified even no value for money cam 5mp but no quality sound is also not good battery very bad the ((***major diadvantage is s-on****))we cant modify with custom roms very bad htc gone
To get the most out of the battery, just disable or turn-off the things that consume lots of battery power.
- auto sync
- cell location
- mobile network
- reduce screen display to the lowest tolerable percentage you can read. Less than 20% will be good.
Just turn them on whenever you need them.
I use this phone for almost 7 months now and I get 1-2 days out of a single charge.
I normally use it for browsing the net / streaming videos using wifi, calls, text messaging, listening to music, and playing games.
DO NOT BUT THIS PHONE.. I thought of a good phone after reviewing all the comments..
- LOW BATTERY BACKUP
- LOW Internal Memory (Only 125 MB Available out of 512 MB of ROM)
- You can not install the applications directly on SDCard
- Worst thing is signal issue.. I am having a N82 earlier and never have a signal problem but in Wildfire S Signal is horrible I have changed the Service provider but no go
I could see lot of threads going for phone comparison, which one is good to buy with budget.
With Midrange phones, Wildfire S, Galaxy Ace, Explorer are the major phones in discussions.
My personal Comments as a user of these phones:
Let me start with Wildfire S as I am holding this in my hand every second.
Good: Build Quality, Pixel density, HTC sense, Touch response.
Bad: Internal Memory, Camera, Gaming, Useless preloaded apps
Good: 3.5 Inch Screen, DLNA, Camera, Hugo Boss edition, Internal memory more than 100MB,DNSe Sound enhancement
Bad: Less pixel density, Cheap Plastic finish, No Automatic brightness control
Good: Build Quality, Pixel density, HTC scene 3.5, Touch response, Snapdragon, Cortex A5
Bad: Internal Memory, Camera is downgraded, Gaming, Useless preloaded apps
Thanks for HTC! Announced 2.3.5 Upgrade with some system updates.
New lock screen is available and memory space is optimized after the 2.3.5 upgrade.
I had only 20 MB of internal memory and after the upgrade, I have about 40 MB free with the same applications and data on my phone.
List of new things after upgrade
1.Android Market Upgrade
2.Android 2.3.5 upgrade
3.New Lock screen
4.eBuddy XMS built in application
5.Improved Application Memory size
6.User available internal memory is increased (means the memory available for installing any new application and data; Not refering the total Internal Memory. It is because of the improved applicaiton memory size)
It would be good if Wildfire S also gets the Tamil and Hindi font update, as HTC explorer.

TP, 27 Dec 2011Please advice, HTC Wildfire S or Samsung Y???I would say HTC Wildfire S, because I have used both the handset and didn't really like the display of Galaxy Y. Wildfire S is a bit more expensive than Galaxy Y but it's worth it.
