    I own a HTC Wildfire phone, i purchased it in May 2011 and I am using it.
    Although it lacks in display and performance, but still I like it a lot.
    First of all the design is very good, it looks really good in the hand. When i first bought it people used to look at it again and again. So far after 2.5 yrs design still feels good, although people have those big 5 inch screens in their hands.. lols.
    The build quality of phone is brilliant, I haven't used a screen guard in past 2 years, and still after frequently falling down the screen is as good as new.
    I always missed a dedicated camera key in the phone for all the selfie's weren't really good..lol using volume buttons..
    The software of phone was good for 1st 2-3 months, but after that I had to root the phone to fully utilize the phone's small processor and ram.
    Battery life has been awesome, and it lasted 2 years, after which i replaced it.

    The HTC Wildfire is not a smartphone. It's display is crappy. The Camera is bad. In one Moment it is sharp and then when you take the photo it is not. HTC Sense is sucking on this device. The Apps are shit and Apps out of the market are fare better. Battery life is not stable some times it is holding a day. Sometimes 2, but it can be that it only last for 2 hours. A couple of Apps donnot work on this phone .

    Beside that the design is very good and I have had no problems with reception.

    The HTC Wildfire is my first and my last android phone.. It is slow, the display is bad, and the touch screen is unacceptable.
    Turned Off it is looking nice and the joystick is a nice gimmick. But turned on the display is bad and you see a lot of pixels. But then the camera is very nice. Taking macro pictures is easy and they're sharp. For a Smartphone camera nice. I have never had any problemes with call reception. It is better than the one from the guys with their iPhones. The battery life is nice and two days with normal using is normal. I have had no problemes using it in my car or with my stereo or PC.

    BUT it is so slow. I type faster than the Capitals apear on the screen. And the sound from typing is stocking and then it comes very fast to catch up with the Time.

    And I realy hate Android. Every App is looking differnt. There is no default design. And the App store is full of BS-Apps.

    So my next phone will not be an Android. Maybe an iPhone, But I don't think so because of the bad call rception. So I think a Windows Phone 7 or 8 when it comes out.

    The HTC Wildfire is a solid device that would serve a first-time smartphone owner well, but the software performance leaves much to be desired. HTC Sense 1.0 for Android crashes relatively frequently and overall performance has improved since I replaced it as the default launcher by Launcher 7. The display is very poor. The phone sports a 320 x 240 3.2 inch panel and the capacitive touch screen is often unresponsive. Locking and unlocking the phone solves the problem but it is unsatisfactory to have to do this. The Android Market has a wide choice of apps but a large number are not compatible with the device due to its low resolution. Games such as Angry Birds do not run well with the 528MHz processor and the build quality feels poor as a squeeze of the device will remove the flimsy back cover. Overall I would not recommend this phone as there are far better devices in a similar price range.
