Unfortunately, a slow data network holds it back.PC Mag70HTC Wildfire S (T-Mobile)The HTC Wildfire S isn't as impressive or as fast as high-end Android phones on T-Mobile, but it's inexpensive and offers virtually the same feature set.Engadget80HTC Wildfire S reviewDespite its limitations, the phone offers a compelling set of features at a price that's hard to ignore.Pocket-Lint70HTC Wildfire S reviewThe HTC Wildfire S is best suited to someone who craves a compact device and is looking to talk, text and get social with their phone, with no great desire to push the Android envelope.SlashGear70HTC Wildfire S Review - SlashGearThe HTC Wildfire S has a similar balance to make: it may be new but its specs aren’t, and it may be cheap but other smartphones match it, older perhaps but, thanks to aiming higher in the first place, still outclassing it on paper at least.PC World Australia80HTC Wildfire S Android phoneHTC's Wildfire S offers decent value for money, but doesn't come without compromises.
