The Bottom Line Its small size won't please everyone, but the HTC Wildfire S is a decent, entry-level Android smartphone for a very affordable price. If it wasn't for the HTC One V, the long-lasting Samsung Galaxy Reverb would be Virgin Mobile’s best Android smartphone. Demanding Android fans won't like the HTC One V's slow performance but its premium design and low, no-contract price makes it a steal on Virgin Mobile. Though you won't get blazing data or processing speeds on the Kyocera Event, as an affordable smartphone it's an excellent choice.
