Android Gingerbread Operating System

Android Gingerbread

The Wildfire S runs the Android 2.3 operating system (dubbed Gingerbread) which features a cleaner, more refined interface with new icons, improved top notification bar, and more intuitive navigation.

Multitasking in Gingerbread allows you the ability to run more than one app at a time. If you're playing a game, you can easily switch to an incoming e-mail and then switch back to the game without losing your place. And like the previous version of Android ("Froyo"), Gingerbread provides support for Adobe Flash Player 10.1 for access to the full Web.

The onscreen keyboard makes it easier to type thanks to additional spacing between the keys and larger font sizes. And the more you use the keyboard, the easier typing will be as the enhanced suggest feature records previous input history to make better suggestions.

The Wildfire S also brings one-touch access to the popular Google mobile services you use every day. It also provides easy access to both personal and corporate e-mail, calendars, and contacts supported by Exchange Server and Gmail. And through Android Market, you'll get access to thousands of useful applications, widgets, and fun games to download and install on your phone, with many more apps being added every day.

The Htc Wildfire S was what I expected, A Phone with a very good camera, great audio pick up and, starts falling short about there. The internal memory is a issue that should had been dealt with in the development stage, since the phone is loaded with bloatware that is both quite useless and can't be removed, A low memory mode that does..nothing a power saver mode that does..nothing. I have found that you can't do anything with the phone once the memory is full, like checking the pictures on your SD card for that matter. That camera and that flash oh boy makes it almost worth the..whats that other phones are cheaper with better cameras? with better memory as well? then why get the WildFire S? It is cute...well i can not argue that it is very cute. I find it trash bin worthy.

I used this phone for 6months. i have trouble with touchscreen and every week it asks me to restart the phone. With new SW this seems to have improved but now my battery only last 12-14hrs. I called HTC support and they said they only guarantee the batter for 4-6 HOURS. AGAIN JUST 4-6 HOURS (NOT DAYS). this is the customer service to expect. I told it used to last 2-3 days before and not only half a day and they tell me if it was working better before doenst mean we gurantee that, we only guarantee only 4-6 hrs. This is poor service. So beware before you buy this device.

This phone is a nightmare. Power consumption is very high, so that the phone will barely make it through the day. The touch screen reacts very slow. But worst of all is that the phone is so ridiculously under-equipped with internal memory. The exchangeable SD card doesn't make up for this, since many apps will only install on the internal memory of the phone. Your memory will be clogged up in no time, with only a few apps installed. The screen is an endless source of frustration; the bar with the permanently installed touch-buttons "home", "search" etc. is so close to the rest of the screen area, that you will find yourself frequently exiting applications involuntarily while for instance typing text messages. All in all a halfheartedly thought-out and engineered cell phone; not to speak of the crude design.

Got it from other places. Used it for 6 months.

found that it has the following pros and cons

Small, and lighted
Good camera, the picture quality is better than Iphone 4

Only have 512mb internal memory, and only about 150mb available for apps installation
So the memory will be fulled quickly.
Can't install too many apps.
When the memory is almost fulled, you can't syn the email and contacts.

As the screen is small, the keypad is not too good to type
The phone keypad of Iphone is much better than that phone

The battery drain fast, has to shut the bluetooth, GPS, Wifi in order to save power.
Almost need to charge every day

In conclusion, suggest to pay more to get a higher model phone.
