Slightly more square in design than a lot of its counterparts including the top end HTC Desire, this unusual look only makes the phone grab your attention more than the more traditional design. Weighing in at 118 grammes, the phone feels light when in your hand and sits nicely thanks to the 106.7 x 60.4 x 12.9 mm measurements.

This display is nicely responsive to touch thanks to it being a capacitive touchscreen rather than a resistive type. A handy trackpad is fitted to aid navigation, and once again this responds well thanks to its optical sensors. Showing a resolution of 240 x 320 pixels, the screen not only works well but looks good with sharp images and great colours.

GeoTagging means the phone stores location information about where each photo is taken.

Video can also be captured on the Wildfire, a nice alternative to static shots. Music playback is almost essential with most modern day mobiles so the Wildfires support of formats such as AAC, WAV and MP3 is useful, as is the 3.5mm stereo jack plug which allows the user to use a range of headphones with the handset. A micro SD card slot has been added to the phone which allows for memory expansion up to 32GB, this is in addition to the 512MB of memory that comes pre installed on the phone.
