    How is it better than the Triumph? Adobe Flash is not available on the Wildfire, am I correct?

    I have a beat up OV, and today I planned on grabbing a new phone.. Still undecided between the Wildfire S and the Triumph..

    The wildfire s is smaller than the optimus but same screen size...basically more screen than plastic..

    Flash is overhyped I found no use of it on the triumph..

    That's completely a matter of personal choice and opinion. Some don't care if they have the use of Flash. Some do.

    I have Flash on my OpV, and for me it's totally useless. My desktop gaming rig has Flash, and that's all I care about.

    I hope the mods create a thread for the new phone soon.

    The internal memory available to the user is 106mb. Most apps don't have option to sd card. You will find this to be a huge issue. I installed a few apps moved what I could to sd and was down to 57mb. I returned the phone. The triumph is far better and has a gig available to user of internal memory plus sd card.

    Optimus V can have flash 10.2 installed and works good. 10.1 was horrible. I'm sure the Wildfire will also be able to play flash once it has been explored a bit, if its not already available for it. How does the wildfire feel in terms of strength and durability? The optimus is a pretty solid phone imo.

    what type of screen does it have glass or plastic?

    Ev stands for ev-do I'm pretty sure.. On the Intercept before the OS update, it was Ev and 1x. I believe Ev is actually 3G and 1x is Edge..

    And it has a glass screen..

    I went to bestbuy and they said the EV is normal, so the phone is good, battery sucks though

    Search for antennas towers in your area. I believe if you are in a 4 mile radius you should have good mobile network connection.

    Just google "antenna towers"

    Are you talking about the OV? Because the HTC spec says it has 512MB internal storage. This is making me think I may hafta buy it. The OV is a great phone, but I can't help but think the HTC's memory will come in handy, and at $100 it's a no brainer.

    It has 512 MB ROM, but the user is only allotted to use 106 MB of that 512 MB.

    another post said 418mb is available to the user. We need to find a real review.

    bah, it was on a site with the specs. I just watched a review on youtube and the 106mb was confirmed. Does sense take up that much space? netflix sucked on it too. with that small amount of memory you'd have to root just to remove everything you can.

    pretty sure the white version that radio shack has will be $99 on black friday.

    best buy's silver version, too. Same price. But BBs open at midnight and RSs open at 5:30 so the place to get it is an obvious choice (nnless you have your heart set on a specific color).

    I think you are confusing RAM and ROM.. cell phones have both.

    No, I know the difference between random access and read only. The tech spec list on that site was dead wrong. What I don't know is why Sense takes up so much space. With only 106mb available facebook and google apps will fill half of your space. This could be as bad as the intercept but with gingerbread.
