Advantages of Wildfire S
1. Sense UI
2. Good 5 MP camera
3. Gorilla Glass
4. HTC World-class built quality

Other specifications are similar... No major difference there.

A few days ago, Wildfire S was available for 12k on some website after discount code. I don't remember now... Check TechEnclave deals section... you will find something interesting there...

Cheers!

Thanks AndroidFan 4 ur fast response..

I knew about the camera.. but do you have any idea about the video playback quality.. 2 of my friends have O1 and heard that HD (720p) can not be played there.. is it the same for wildfire S too?

And I will surely check for the deals soon

Wildfire S has internals similar to O1. So, if 720p videos cannot be played on the O1, then I am very sure that they cannot be played on Wildfire S either...

I have an Optimus One. Its a decent phone. And very, very fast after using custom ROMs and kernel patches. I can guarantee my O1 can outperform most 15k phones very easily.

Cheers!

See, praising O1 is good, it deserves it.

But going beyond that. Do you seriously think O1 can outperform Spice Mi410 and Moto Defy or Galaxy Ace(maybe this one), which are the other 15k devices right now?

So you vehemently suggest O1...thanks 4 ur opinion.. but customizing ROM and Kernel may not be my cup of tea... what does it take to custom them anyway?

root > install rom manager from market > flash clockworkmod recovery (rom manager will do it for you) > downloading & copying the rom you like to memory card & flashing it using clockworkmod recovery. done.

I don't see why you want an Android when you just won't customize it. The stock ROM's are really boring and you'll probably get bored after a while.

But anyways, get LG Optimus one. Or Defy if you can afford it. (14.5k)

Customizing stuff on phones just looks intimidating, every tom dick and harry can do it. It's just a matter of throwing files in certain locations.

The factory ROMs usually comes with bloatware (thankfully, it is far less for LG O1) but still, a 3rd party ROM like Cyanogen Mod 7 is usually much faster than these ROMs with the only exception being that you need to be aware of few bugs that might crop up once in a while. So, either try LG O1 or look for Nokia C6-01 if you want a Symbian device.

no need at all. just make sure that you don't keep passwords saved as a note. and if possible, opt for 2-step verification for your gmail account. it's painful in the beginning but is immensely helpful.
