HTC Wildfire S? There's no need to swear ;-).
I would recommend the Samsung Galaxy W.
All the best.
Gas, 17 Mar 2012hey man,which link did you use to update to 2.3.6.is it official rom?@ Gas
This is the Rom I used; as far as I can tell it is the official one. I have been using it for about two months now without any problems at all. No lag, no Force Closes, and the battery life now is superb; I manage to get 5 days from one charge regularly.
I gave up on Kies a long time ago, in my opinion it is a bug ridden piece of bloatware; so I use Odin for flashing my phone. I've upgraded four Galaxy S phones now without any trouble; but as a disclaimer I would point out that you flash your phone at your own risk.
On the link page you will see that you get a new lock screen, a photo editor, and Face Unlock, along with several bug fixes.
perfect mobile but no flash light....... its great mistake of samsung company.

I upgraded my Firmware to Gingerbread v2.3.6 VAP mainly for the built in photo editor.
The bonus was that I also got the new lockscreen (nice), and Face Unlock which I'm not all that sure about because I have read elsewhere that you can hold a photo of the owner in front of the camera and it unlocks it. (Don't know if that is true, I haven't used Face Unlock, it seems silly).

The upgrade from Froyo to Gingerbread was necessary to address bugs and performance issues. ICS isn't a necessary update for the SGS as the phone is working perfectly on the latest Gingerbread build.
If all you want is the Face unlock then you can download a Face unlock app from Play Shop or wait for the Value pack to be released.
All the best.
