a great phone, but terrible battery, poor internal memory, and lags when playing angry birds. I would only recommend this to light users... if you want to be constantly online (mobile data) or using it often, then this is not for you.

Lot's of people are complaining about the battery life, i do 2 days with my Wildfire, if i played games or listened to music i need to charge it at night, but never in the whole time i have my wildfire i needed to charge it more than 3 times/day..
What the strange thing is, is that my phone has a longer battery life when my wifi stays on! Strange but true!
I think some users over here should beter buy a PSP or something like that than giving bad reviews about a phone that's verry good for it's price & wich can't be seen as a "gamephone" but a great smartphone for social networking, good for professional use & entertainment usage. But for gaming you best buy iPhone 4, Samsung Galaxy S or the S2.
The only thing wich i don't like is that the internal memory isn't that big.. therefore you need to move some apps to the SD-card, or if not you'll need to delete apps you don't use them that much.
I think for this price you can't get a better smartphone than this one!
pls pls do\not buyfffffff i hv to charge it twice a day ..and i can play game only with charging is on so pls do not evr think to buy it pls go with anothr good and well reved mob..........i have this since 12th aug 2011.....

ahmedmohamed, 12 Sep 2011Which is better HTC Wildfire S or Motorola Defy ?htc wildfire
I am using Wildfire S for last two months. it is a good one. there are problems, common problems like, battery life and internal memory.
When i bought and configured all simple apps and could see only 20 mb left on my internal memory, even after moved all apps to SD card. here some of my tips.
1. Don't install apps like task killer, which may consume extra power and make your phone unstable.
2. Don't install any app for moving applications to SD card and waste your memory. It is all available in settings itself. Note: Moving app to SD still will leave some max of 50% on internal memory.
3. Battery booster and other apps claim that will improve the battery life. I did not see any much difference.
4. CPU tuner apps which switches the frequency automatically may give improvements on the battery life by reducing the Frequency. I doubt that stability of device in long run, because of frequent changes on the internal processing behavior. Note that these apps will run like services and will consume some power also.
5. if you want some extra internal memory, you can uninstall updates on Maps and other heavy application, and for which you feel the updates are not much useful.
6. Recently, I did factory reset and I could see some 110 MB internal memory and now i think i can install some apps. because, when i bought the phone and at the first time i checked, it was about to 50MB only. free. you may try that if you want.
7. if you are in the place where the phone signal is not good and consistent, I would recommend to off the GPRS or 3G if you want to save some back up time.
8. it would be good and best to charge always with the regular charger than the computer/laptop USB. especially when the battery charge is less than 15%.
9. it is not good one for gaming / heavy multiprocessing. you would feel the lag in performance. It is good for regular usage.
10. The built-in browser is good enough, i think.
11. I could notice some malfunctioning in HTC widgets sometime. Even HTC support could not resolve,I resolved after a different tries. The HTC Support people are not technical good enough to handle our issues. This is what is felt.
there are good and bad with this one as everyone has. it is up to you to buy this. because I loved the HTC scene and bought with these known issues.
One thing with GSM Spec sheet, I am wondering that why the specsheet is not update with the internal memory with usable is 150 MB. Please change. Don't do the hide something like HTC did.
Which is better wildfire or desire. I need to read word documents and sync an appointment book
I recently bought the HTC WILDFIRE S and i'm very happy that i bought it. Its a phone that gets u addicted to itself and any new android user can easily adapt himself/herself to it in no time as it is vey user friendly. The android 2.3 works really well teamed up with the HTC sense and the touch interface works really well.
I've used the iphone as well, so i can confidently say that even if the HTC WILDFIRE doesnt match up with the iphone 100%, but its a serious substitute.
Anyone planning to buy a phone with good features and opting for andriod, i strongly suggest this phone. The 5 megapixel camera works pretty well and thank HTC that theres LED flash to go with it. Setback is that there is no front facing camera(which i feel is of no use unless u r a serious businessman who needs it all the time) and pretty low battery back-up which is quite understandable with todays smartphones.
The internal memory of this phone is very low and that is a serious setback cos u will have to end-up transferring files or apps to the SD card very often(for this "apps2sd" app can be downloaed from the android market) but still i feel there shud have been more memory.
Overall i wud say that its a fun smartphone to have and i can assure that u wont regret buying this one.
