HTC’s new Wildfire E3 looks good for an entry-level smartphone

Before you ask... No! It’s not a flagship

HTC today is a far cry from the glory days of premium and modern-looking smartphone designs with sharp edges and straight lines that demanded your attention. It’s more into budget smartphones and its newest Wildfire E3 has no references to anything that’s hot and happening. Launched just in Russia (for now), it’s still quite the looker with a sleek design and that ridged power button that made its appearance on the more recent handsets from the brand. The focus is clearly on the camera and battery life. There’s a 13 MP quad camera setup at the back and a 13 MP shooter that sits inside the drop notch of that 6.5-inch HD+ display. There’s a 2.0 GHz MediaTek Helio P22 chipset accompanied by 2/3 GB of RAM and 64/128 GB of storage. Powering it all is a 4000 mAh battery. And if you were thinking of getting one just for old times’ sake, well... it does not pack in 5G either.
