The majority of the features on the HTC Wildfire S are the same as, or very similar to, those found on the original Wildfire. The processor has been beefed up to 600 MHz (the original was 528 MHz). ROM is still 512 MB, but the RAM has been increased to 512 MB (the original was 384 MB). You can expand the onboard memory with a microSD card of up to 32 GB.
You’ve got 3G, GPRS, and EDGE connectivity. There’s also Wi-Fi 802.11 b, g or n, which is a slight improvement. The Bluetooth has also been boosted as version 3 is supported and there’s A2DP for wireless stereo headsets. The phone also has GPS support and a digital compass.
The camera is 5 megapixel again and there is auto-focus and an LED flash. Your maximum resolution for shots is going to be 2592 x 1944 pixels. You can also record video and the phone supports geo-tagging for your photos. The main problem with the cameras in HTC phones is the delay between shots, the auto-focus can take a while to work and it’s difficult to snap shots spontaneously.
Audio and video support is good with AAC, AMR, OGG, M4A, MID, MP3, WAV and WMA audio formats all supported along with 3GP, 3G2, MP4 and WMV video formats. There is also a stereo FM radio with RDS.
You can text chat to your heart’s content with threaded SMS support, MMS, push e-mail and instant messaging. There are also a few other common features like the ability to record voice memos, an organizer and a document viewer.
Naturally, you’ll find Facebook and YouTube integration (now a smartphone standard) and through the Android Market you’ll be able to get all sorts of top Android apps to further improve your functionality.
