Hey guys got mine couple of days back. It's awesome. Truely imagination at work. I must admit that its way above my imagination thank-you HTC for such a usable and affordable smartphone. You are right the review is biased no doubt about it. Anyway guys this is defenitly owners pride, a pleasure to use.

This is a completely biased review. Anyone could easily guess it. It only highlights the negatives throughout the review which you dont find in any other review. Hmmm what would gsmarena get profited by this??? This is a budget mobile for the starters of android devices. Guys this have sense ui which is the best of the lot in the market now. It has the same hardware configuration of legend minus the screen and processor speed difference of only 72 MHz processor.

Android OS is a welcome change and Wildfire is Supercool for the price that you would get it for I feel you should go for it provided you have a plan with your network provider that gives you unlimited or atleast considerably good amount of data..
Dont go for the boring symbian again....
All the best..
