5 of the best budget smartphones
HTC Wildfire S
Its predecessor was the poor man's Desire – an affordable handset designed to give you the smartphone experience minus all the frills – but the Wildfire S isn't so laughable. This time round, it's better looking, sports a better screen, a 5MP camera, premium aesthetics, the latest version of the Google OS and HTC's very own Sense UI. The only feature letting the side down is its 600MHz processor, but given that you get all the above for a knock-down price, it can be forgiven.
