My advice to everyone wil be to buy a phone you really like, don't read these comments coz it is a waste of time. After reading good comments about samsung omnia, I was the loser who went & purchased one. Thats why see the phone for your self and see if you like it. Don't let others decide for you!!!
my names raine im from d philippines. i have a wildfire myself everything about the phone is good. except for the camera, for me its complicated to take pictures using it. And another is the battery life. so poor battery life. i have to charged it thrice a day since i used it for internet too much. hopefully they would do something about the battery life problem. :(

The phone is awesome. I had doubt about the screen resolution, but at this price, none other matches it. Since I was a smartphone beginner, I dint have any prob with the resolution either.
Although right now i've given it to the service center due to water damage :(
Legendarryyy...!!!!..have never come across a better UI..was a hardcore Nokia Loyalist till a month back..somehow convinced myself to get one...totally worth it..especially the Keypad..superb..!!..please don't even compare this to Galaxy 3 or any other phone in this range...none stands a chance...:)

I also hadn't tried an hTC before. Bought Wildfire; if you ask me now, "In future I won't buy anything other than hTC."
They are just perfect. hTC has done the right thing by making this a low resolution screen, because thats only way to make a low-cost-gadget of hTC standards.
hTC is not hunting in Indian Markets. No Ads. NO Showrooms. Thats why you won't find many. Go to organised dealers like Croma, Reliance Digital, Univercell, Wavetel etc. In Chennai, its available in Poorvika and Reliance Digital on order.
If you can find it, buy it. Watch Official Video on youtube and read my review. Becoz there aren't many around, you'll have that celebrity status. You know what I mean? :)

I finalised on WAVE (8500) but before I could go for it there is nothing available. All that is available is the lower end version of wave. Now I looked at the reviews of HTC Wild fire it sounds interesting, I would like to know more about the screen resolution and the battery back up. Can you pls mail me about this to email@example.com
I'm from India. In Chennai I found a single available peice in Poorvika Mobiles,Triplicane for Rs.15,300.
Bought it a week ago. I am still smiling. Its stunning. Credit goes to Android and bit more to hTC.
I've been a Nokia user for years, tried out all Symbian Versions; except the S^3 OS. Was planning to buy C6 untill I read the complaints lodged in Nokia Website.
[Never liked Samsung because its a "Korean Mobile". PUN.]
Decided on Andriod. Budget below Rs.15k. Shortlisted Sony X8, hTC Wildfire, Samsung Galaxy 3.
Galaxy 3:Saw demo at Croma, screen was bad. Plasticy back cover. Camera is good even with 3MP. But its not getting 2.2 update. Dropped it.
Sony X8: No Autofocus(Thats very bad). Still running 1.6. Dropped it.
Wildfire: Couldn't even find the piece anywhere. hTC doesn't run any Ads in India.(Why?) Finally at Poorvika; No demo allowed.
Scoured through reviews and videos. (Watch the official video). Bought it. Poorvika gave 6-EMI plan. :)
I was most worried about screen resolution being low. It turned out to be decent. Definitely not bad. As for app-compatibility high-end 3D games won't run. Ok for 15k. (Battery of Galaxy S drains out in 5 hrs on these games). Camera is superb. Optical trackball is superb. Best thing is the Keypad.(Its correcting everything perfectly. OMG,How?) Only in HTC you get this feature. Swype on Samsungs are not that good. I tried on Galaxy 3.
I'm a engg graduate. Tech savvy. Very useful apps, widgets etc. makes this the perfect mobile for Indian Customer.
And you know what there is "Speech to Text" also in 2.2. Truly VFM

Biggest problem with HTC phones is battery life. Batter life is pathetic.
HTC is not ideal for gaming and music. Better you opt for either Nokia or Samsung.

To anyone who is concerned about the QVGA resolution: it's really not noticeable that is actualy "only" 320x240. I mean come'on people just a year ago this res. was quite good(if u ask me it still is!). My guess about why ppl r saying bad things bout the phone's res. is introduction of the RETINA display by Apple. Yes it has the best display in the world, but it also is one of the most expensive handsets out there. And compared value/price of the HTC Wildfire and Apple iPhone, the apsolute winner is Wildfire HANDSDOWN! If u want reasonably prised phone with superb performance than i totaly recommend the Wildfire. I hope this was helpfull..... See Ya ;-)
pitch_dark, 27 Oct 2010my only concern is tha qvga display.i m confused about buying either htc touch hd or this htc ... moreas my experience , hd2 is the best .. but for your budget .. htc hero or htc nexus will be the best for u .
[deleted post]my only concern is tha qvga display.i m confused about buying either htc touch hd or this htc wildfire as my budget is limited.please help me out.I want to see hd movies, listen good quality songs also user friendly interface.what is your opinion?
The wildfire is not a phone for you if you want really good multimedia features like camera and video recording and games. It's advantages are the reliable and powerful android platform along with the stunning htc sense user interface and the build quality of htc. Also its performance and touch screen are superb. Camera and music are also quite good. I own it and am really pleased with it. No other phone offers this quality at such a price. But please don't buy it if your priority is multimedia and gaming. You may be totally disappointed.
Ps. It doesn't support live wallpapers.
