HTC has released updates of a number of its popular handsets. The S -Series sees a number of upgrades to the popular HTC Wildfire, HTC Desire and HTC Incredible. The HTC wildfire S is one of the good selling phones of HTC but what revolutionary Changes have been made in this handset? In this article we will look for that changes and will find out whether the changes are really appreciable or the original Wildfire is still the better option as compared to its upgraded version WILDFIRE S.
HTC Wildfire S is the best phone for those who are looking for a good smart-phone with highly functional touch-screen and other operating features in BUDGET. From various reviews we can say that it is similar to its predecessor (Wildfire) in many ways. Like, it comes with the same 3.2 inch display. It comes with relatively the same dimensions. Lastly, it feels exactly like its original version. But as “Wildfire S” is the upgraded version of its predecessor, there are many features which are new and which are not present in the Original “Wildfire”.
First of all, the phone has the latest ANDROID 2.3 Google OS “GINGERBREAD” as compared to its predecessor having “ECLAIR” version.
Another reason why this mid-range handset makes sense is its enhanced “Sense UI”. This is what the Taiwanese phone manufacturer is known for. One of the advantages offered by this user interface is communication based on people and not applications. Everything from calls to SMS and from emails to updates is based on the people on your contact list. Furthermore, typing in updates, email, and SMS is further enhanced by the new virtual keyboard Gingerbread has to offer.
Friend Stream is a feature that is sure to be one of your favorites on the HTC Wildfire S. It allows users to see all updates on FACEBOOK. It allows users to see Tweets on TWITTER. Lastly, it allows you to see photos on FLICKER.
Now if we look at the internal hardware of the phone, the Wildfire S has a more powerful processor installed in it. The original Wildfire has a 528MHz processor, but this has been beefed up to 600MHz in the Wildfire S. This helps its user’s to run more applications and multitasking issues at FASTER SPEEDS.
The 3.2-inch HVGA (480 x 320 pixel) TFT LCD display is a marked improvement over its QVGA predecessor. Despite being fashioned out of Gorilla Glass (Unscratchable- glass), the capacitive touch screen is prone to scratches. Wildfire S is powered by a Qualcomm MSM7227 SOC with a 600MHz CPU and an ADRENO 200 GPU including : 512MB of memory, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, AGPS, FM radio, along with a compass, accelerometer, proximity and ambient light sensors.
The HTC Wildfire S has a 5-MP camera with a single LED flash. There is no front-facing camera for video calls but Video capture is limited to VGA (640 x 480) on the Wildfire S, which is a drastic improvement over the original Wildfire.
Lastly, if we talk about the battery life of the WILDFIRE S, it is equipped with a 1230mAh battery, the phone could meet, disappoint, or exceed your expectations and this will all come down to how you use it. In many of our worst battery torture test, we found that the HTC Wildfire S is capable of giving at least or an average battery backup time of 5 hours and 15 minutes which is very significant for a good SMARTPHONE in such worst testing conditions. The phone has given the backup even more than 30 hours in some tests though you will obviously get more use by fine-tuning the synchronization settings.
Wrap up:At the end, we can say that the phone offers a compelling set of features at a price that's hard to ignore and definitely the WILDFIRE S is much better than its ORIGINAL.
