HTC Wildfire Software Tour

Here’s a quick software tour I did of the HTC Wildfire handset. As you will see in the video the Wildfire’s software is totally identical to what you can find on the HTC Desire so there isn’t much to say about it. The Sense UI sitting on top of Android 2.1 is smooth and really pleasant to use but things get a bit once you start using more CPU intensive applications like the browser and many other applications. The MSM7225 chipset clocked at 528Mhz starts to show its limits and makes the Wildfire really frustrating to use especially when in the browser. Forget about gaming mainly because of the slow chipset and because the screen’s QVGA resolution renders the device incompatible with many of the applications/games available on the Android Market.
