HTC Wildfire S

RH Numbers

Incredibly light at 105g even though it looks chunky, the 3.2in, 320 x 480-pixel display on the Wildfire S is surrounded by solid HTC design and fits in all pockets with ease. Crucially, the screen is one of the most responsive on test. The HTC Sense UI Android overlays works brilliantly too.

The 5Mp camera excels at outdoor scenes and has clever image filters built-in for Instagram-style effects from the start. The 2GB MicroSD card and 600MHz processor aren’t headline features but the HTC Wildfire S feels faster than the spec and it’s a fun smartphone, if you can avoid upgrade envy and the new HTC Desire C.

RH Numbers

This pocket-sized smartphone looks toy-like in appearance but is actually a rugged, highly protected smartphone. The 3.2in screen is small compared to rivals and, from the go, this is a smartphone targeting active teenagers switching from a standard phone and entering the world of Android 2.3.

A 600MHz processor and 3Mp are budget concessions to the rock solid build quality. As a fringe benefit, it’s possible to get two days use out of the Defy Mini but the biggest downfall is the screen – the most unresponsive on test. You can get much better for the money but few smartphones are as tough.
