Size comparison: HTC Wildfire S and the a lot more expensive HTC Sensation, respectively.

HTC Wildfire S may be more pocket-friendly than its heavy-weight siblings but it sure is a capable Android handset. Running on a 600Mhz chip, this smartphone features a 3.2-inch Gorilla glass display, ultra-smart HTC Sense UI skin for Android, 5 MegaPixel camera and a variety of connectivity options including Wifi, Bluetooth and 3G.

Here's HTC Wildfire S in the flesh --

I think HTC Wildfire S is ideal for students and budget-conscious yuppies who want to discover why HTC is critically acclaimed. It's small but its case is as solid as that other HTC handsets and it's HTC Sense UI is basically the same as its bigger siblings'. Wildfire S' multimedia features - while not top-of-the-line - are good enough for daily use.

HTC Wildfire S is now available in all authorized HTC retail stores nationwide. You can get it in four colors; Silver, Brown, Black and Lilac - for only Php 14,990.
