Review : HTC Wildfire
With the plethora of Android devices entering the market every day, the process of making the right choice becomes difficult. When a user decides to go for Android mobiles, his next question would be the budget. Currently there are many mobiles available in the high end segment compared to the low and mid segment. When HTC introduced Wildfire in Indian market, it marked its entry into the mid-segment of Android Mobile market. HTC Wildfire has received mixed reactions from customers and critics around the globe. Let us now check out the model and see how relevant it is to the Great Indian Mobile market.
Under the bonnet, the device is powered by Qualcomm MSM7225 chipset clocked at 528 Mhz. It has 512 MB ROM and 384 MB RAM. Wildfire also has a digital compass, accelerometer, wifi, Bluetooth, FM radio aGPS its 3G enabled. Now let’s power up the device and check what it’s got to offer.
Wildfire comes with the goodness of Android 2.1 loaded with the HTC Sense UI. With the specifications and processor capability, it’s a remote chance that this device will ever get a Froyo (2.2) update. But for this device, 2.1 is good enough and offers sufficient speed and performance. The ‘Force Close’ screens did pop up at a few instances, crashing the Sense UI. The device would have been better with the vanilla version of the Android 2.1 without Sense UI.
