HTC Wildfire S Android 2.3.5 update now available, with Sense 2.1

We couldn’t quite believe it when HTC Turkish Facebook page and a few commenters mentioned the fact that the humble Wildfire S was due an upgrade to Android 2.3.5 – but it is. In fact, it already has, with the 2.3.5 update now live across Europe.

The trade off comes from memory limitations of the Wildfire S, with HTC not updating HTC Sense in the same way it did with the Desire HD and Incredible S update – all you get on the Wildfire S is 2.3.5 with HTC Sense 2.1 and the new interactive lock screen…

htc wildfire s 235 update

…plus those who’ve updated the phone are finding themselves with less available memory for apps, as was the trade-off with the HTC Desire 2.3 update. But at least it’s out there. Do let us know if you’re an excited Wildfire S owner currently in the throes of an OS upgrade.

    Typo alert. HTC doesn’t have a turkey operation. As for updates, I’ve had 2.3.7 in the shape of cm7.1 for 2 months now on a Vodafone Smart and the thing runs like a dream. The important thing is to root and remove abominations like google maps that take up precious ram.

    I couldn’t believe it when I saw there was an update available for my Wildfire S. Apart from the new lock screen, I think it’s faster, as well.

      I’ve just got an update notification here in Yorkshire, UK.
      Reason I’m here is to verify its’ authenticity, clearly it is genuine. A small concern is that there isn’t enough internal storage space available and I’m reluctant to wipe off my office reader to make room for it. Just finished download… Wow, ‘Pull Ring to Unlock’… Time to play….

      Nexus 5It’s smooth to use, the 1080p display is sharp, clear and bright, the device is extremely light and thin and therefore very pocketable and portable — much more so than other 5-inch phones we’ve used. And yet… we’re a bit unimpressed by the overall package…

      The HTC One V is HTC’s third entry in its high-profile new HTC One range, offering a smaller 3.7″ display running on a single-core 1GHz processor.
