Press Release   •   Oct 28, 2010 05:56 BST

HTC are generally dubbed as one of Apple’s biggest competitors when it comes to challenging the iPhone for touchscreen smartphone technology. However, they have come out of relatively nowhere. The Taiwanese company just suddenly appeared in the UK, and those who own a HTC device are generally very pleased. Does one of the newest additions to the HTC family; the Wildfire, have what it takes to fit in with the family?

What makes a Wildfire?

The device is slightly more compact than its brother the HTC Desire, with a 3.2’’ QVGA resolution, capacitive touchscreen. Sadly however, the screen quality is quite poor and the QVGA resolution doesn’t deliver the eye catching software very well either.

The operating software is the popular Google Android v2.1 and the phone users the Sense user interface. Google Android offers a variety of internalized favourites such as Google Mail, Google Search and YouTube as standard. The user interface allows for smooth and responsive navigation around all aspects of the phone, despite the visuals being slightly let down by the low-resolution screen. This gorgeous touchscreen has good mobile phone deals online ready for you to pick up. These online deals are great if you're on a budget. Budget is what most people usually consider.

The Wildfire boasts full connectivity including 3G, Wi Fi, GSM and microUSB. This diverse collection of connectivity allows for the best utilization of the fully integrated social networking, which features such gladiators as Facebook and Twitter. The social networking is also part of the unique and fun Friend Stream feature that is offered on HTC devices. Internet browsing is good and features Flash support that makes for a wide spread internet browsing experience.

The camera on the handset is of a good quality, boasting 5 mega pixels, auto focus, LED flash and touch focus. The video recording however is slightly below standard for a device from a company with such a high calibre. compiles and hand picks top mobile phone offers from around the country. For UK consumers looking to compare iPhone deals or for cheap mobile contracts, it is an ideal destination.
