The camera leaves a lot to be desired. Its maximum stills resolution of 3Mp isn’t necessarily cause for an immediate sigh of disappointment, but I found its performance ragged.
In amenable conditions it turns out a fair shot. The playground photo is bright, for example. But it has real trouble with lots of outdoor light – the scene with the large trees and white building was shot in bright sunshine and the building is just a dreadful splodge of bright white.
It isn’t good at close-up shots – see the flowers. And indoors, with no flash to help the camera out, it needs plenty of ambient light. A final nail in its coffin: the shutter lag is seriously long.
Why waste money on this. You can buy a basic nokia 5230 for just over £60 and get 640*320 res if you need some for net.
I got the HTC Desire only £30 for it and t-mobile only has a fair use of 3GB per month on it.
and if you look at mobiles dot co dot uk you can get them for loads less on most networks..
Needs to be cheaper or PAYG for that spec really.
Quiet disappointing really. For £20 a month T-Mobile's been offering the Desire for £35 recently (didn't really look into what it comes with but would suspect not much for that price). And for the dif in price and spec that's got to be a seriously better buy. Guess HTC are clearing the shelves though for the new dual core 1.5GHz line of phones they've got coming soon...kind of insane thinking about that kind of processing power in your pocket, it's like having 4 working Iphone 4's :P
Fingers crossed though this won't sell well as most users will get a proper Android phone!
Pity, I was hoping Huwaei had improved on the T-Mobile Pulse as I'm in the market for a cheap Android handset. Any chance of a HTC Wildfire review?
