Rooted my phone, overclocked it to 768mhz and done a little test. Tried to open with Quickoffice (stock app on Wildfire) a word document. Overclocked to 768mhz it took 65 sek to open it exactly the same as stock 528mhz (65 sek). So there is apsolutely no difference if you overclock it or not, it will still be extreamly slow phone. Hoped there will be some performace increase after oveclock but sadly no...
Don't ever buy it/ got as gift from my brother. it hangs all the time. I clik on a message and some other message will pop. horrible phone really.
which one i should buy ? wildfire or wildfire s ??? I ve heard that the wildfire s has a very poor battery .. is that true ??
By far the worst phone I have ever used. It looks quite nice but looks can be deceiving. It is sluggish and unresponsive. You'll call people accidentally, cut people off accidentally, scream with frustration as you wait for the phone to keep up with your fingers when composing text messages and emails. Want to take a quick photo? Better make sure you got plenty of time on your hands. Really, for a smart phone this is just plain embarrassing. This phone is trying to be something it is not. It is like a snazy looking sports car with a scooter engine. I have a friend that has the same phone and she said she barely uses it due to its awful interface. I work for a mobile phone company and whenever I come across a customer with this phone, I sigh deeply with the utmost pity. Please, do not under any circumstances buy this phone. The Wildfire S is much better.
Hye frinds im intrested to buy this phone. Plz tel me can i purchese it?
Finally after 2 years of use i rooted my phone. Tried the CM7.2 but didnt like it so i reverted back to my stock 2.2.1 ROM. But with the stock ROM and kernel you cant overclock it, so I changed the kernel and it is now on 768mhz stable. I use launcherPro and the UI runs much smoother then stock htc sense does. Overclocking it helps when u are using some apps but arm v6 cpu and no gpu just limits this phone to much. Skype even with 768mhz is useless on this phone. Browser on CM7 is faster even then my Miren browser that Im using on my stock ROM.
i have been using my wildfire for almost 2 years and i have no issues with the battery. on standby it lasted for 7 and a half days! :D
dont bother wiv this phone.
get wildfire s with gingerbread if u still like the format, on this one theres no moving wallpaper,can hardly download stuff off shop etc....im getting rid of mine, my battery lasts a day if im lucky and thats with mimimal useage.
and wonder whats the point in having if u cant downoad apps.
masala, 13 Aug 2012my question is where can i find or barred the number which is calling Down load call blocker software..
i want to buy htc wild fire ....anybody here to tell me abt phone specifications and how it is in use...i mean is there any using this phone....???
kindly tell me sincerely
Get the most out of your old wildfire by rooting it.Start by doing it if you have Hboot ver 001 and then install CyanogenMod 7.2 powered by gingerbread 2.3.7. Keep in mind chainfire 3d is useless on this model. better off with a 800mhz processor or higher to play the minimum old 3d games.
Nilab, 29 Jun 2012The worse phone ever!! it used to freeze all the time, the keyboard isn't comfortable at all,c... moreyou can solve the problem with the keyboard downloading SwiftKey X, it is great. you don't need to use the original keyboard, wchich, i agree, is not good.
As far as the browser is concerned, I am using Opera Mobile, it works excellent with this phone and is is quick,so download this one and you will see the difference straight away..the original phone's browser is too sluggish
