It is good that you people take the same building(probably in front of your office.. :P ) picture from all the phones in camera test.. I am a regular reader of DP Review too and the problem I face there is the samples they add for every camera is taken at different place and conditions.. So it is difficult to compare the pictures(hence cameras) directly(but reviews will be great)..

Where's the equalizer? Ever forgot it or what? And hey mate there is audio quality test, and the test tells itself it beats the galaxy ace and other phones that competes on this. C6-01 is the 1st better and this is the next.

The review states that this handset doesn't do 720p video recording...I have the phone sitting in my hand for testing, and yes it does

The 600MHz snapdragon CPU that is present in Wildfire S is faster than the 800MHz ARM 11 CPU that is present in Galaxy Ace. You cannot compare processors from different architectures based on their clock speeds.

200 euro or 300$ on the market today, very expensive, look at the zte blade, you can find it for 70-80 euro and has bigger screen.(and it s the same quality: plastic!)

Now I like HTC devices, good builds, good UIs and they rarely fail to deliver. But this all boils down to this: it is an entry-level phone with a midrange price. If it were price slightly lower than the Galaxy Ace, I would definitely consider this.
