The red HTC Wildfire is hot!

Our last shots of the HTC Wildfire weren’t taken nicely so we’re doing another round of HD video and photos; and this time, it’s with the red-hot model.

I’ve gone used to HTC handsets sporting bland, cold colors like brown and black so it was a huge surprise to see a red-hot HTC Wildfire in the flesh.

I think they did this with the HTC Smart with a range of colors but it would be nice to see the same on mid-range to high-end models.

See short video clip above of the HTC Wildfire — notice that the TFT screen flickers and though it supports up to 16M colors, I can still see the separation of the color gradients.

HTC Wildfire specs:
Qualcomm MSM 7225 528MHz processor
3.2″ TFT display @ 240×320 pixels
384MB RAM, 512MB ROM
up to 32GB via microSD
WiFi 802.11 b/g
Bluetooth 2.1 w/ A2DP
3G/HSDPA 7.2 Mbps
5MP autofocus camera w/ LED flash
FM Radio with RDS
GPS w/ aGPS support
1300mAh Li-Ion battery

With a suggested retail price of Php17,500 (though stores are selling it for as low as Php15,500), the HTC Wildfire could be one of those bang-for-the-buck Android phones out there along with the Spica and the X10 Mini.

    Memo Xpress in Ermita is selling it at PHP14,890, cash. But out of stock.

    Head office naman, selling it at around 16k, cash din.

    Wala bang fixed price sila? Same company lang naman kasi.

  14. Hi, I’m planning to get a Wildfire, but I don’t get to see much reviews on how it performs with Office documents, like, is it possible to edit Word and Powerpoint using the Wildfire? The lady at SM North Edsa told me, viewer lang daw sya. But there are websites that offer applications for this. Can somebody help me with this?

  15. @Pinkay: The wildfire comes with a default application that can read office apps. But you can download/buy/research “documents to go” to create and edit office documents such as ppt, word, and excel, it comes with a pdf viewer as well. It’s the same app that iphone users download. :)

  16. I have one now and been using it for several weeks, this phone is great ^^ highly comparable with HTC Desire.

  17. @aya how’s the battery life w/ regular use?can it last for 2-3days most?

  18. hi sir yuga.. need some help, did u experience any lag when there’s an incoming call or sms? i have read user reviews saying so and i would’ve got this if not for that..

    I’m planning to buy a mid-range android phone. . .HTC wildfire and SAMSUNG galaxy 5 as my two contenders. any thoughts about this guys? sir yuga?

  20. guys, are the apps in the android market available here in the philippines?


  21. ano ang videoformat nito kapag mag record ng video? 3gp or mp4?

  22. I just got my wildfire against the spica. I agree the video resolution is okay despite of the lower specs. I’m still exploring it but it’s way more responsive than the spica. I’ve tried the spica a number of times on the Globe booths. I just don’t like the images from the camera for a 5 megapixel camera but that may be due to poor lighting. I still need to evaluate more.

    Over all, thanks to yuga for an informative review of the phone. I’m beggining to like HTC.

  23. Can anyone provide me the link for the USB driver? Nasira contents ng microsd ko. Hindi ko madetect ang phone ko pag nakasaksak na siya sa usbport. Thanks.

  24. Sorry panick lang ako hehehehe. Narecover ko na contents ng usb ko. Pero kailangan ko pala mount ko as disk drive para makita ko ang microsd. My bad.
