    Hi Guys,
    Before i start please be as impartial as you can be.

    My Girlfriend has the X10 mini Pro but have been having no end of problems which i kept asuring her would be fixed by upgrading to 2.1.

    2.1. has come and gone and the problems are still there with even more now added.
    My question is which is the best hand set? My thoughts are the wildfire as i have the desire with NONE of the problems my GF is facing.
    Christmas is coming and i am willing to buy her this phone if it will be worth it.

    How reliable is this phone? I know the processor of the Wildfire is only 530 (around) and the sony is 600, would this be noticable?
    What other diferences are there?

    I also know there is no live wallpapers, anything missing from this handset,
    Can you (digital) zoom in the camera app?

    Sorry for the long post but please give me honest answers,

    WHICH IS BETTER

    thanks

    The resolution isnt great next to the desire. I would never go for the x10 or any variant. go and take your desire and compare the wildfire with it.

    Personally, I wouldn't be satisfied with it, but that's me and I have a desire so it would be a step down.

    Hi mate, As i stated above this is for my GF, who has an X10. I would never down grade ;)

    In your opinion you would swap the x10 mini pro for the wildfire? I know the res is lower than the desire but

    Looks good. Will play with that later. Do you need to have a rooted phone.

    No you dont. It generates an apk. You install it normally then go into settings>Language and keyboard. Enable HTC_IME mod there.

    Then select it by long pressing on any text input field and choose input method.

    My wife has the X10 mini (not the pro though) and son has the Wildfire. The wildfire wins hands down, a fact that even my wife admits as she is not happy with the X10 (although she is actually happier after the 2.1 upgrade). The wildfire is a much more robust phone and, has already been mentioned the only real issue with it is that the screen resolution is poor in contrast with the Desire. If you've never seen the desire screen then the Wildfire will feel and behave like a top of the range phone.

    Its funny because everyone i know with an X10 (big or small) hate it. We went to play with the wildfire at the weekend and compared it to both my Desire and my GF's x10. In my eyes the wildfire is the best phone out of the x10 and wildfire.
    Looks like my GF is set on keeping her X10 as she is used to it and now doesnt want to change.

    Thanks for all your help and advice guys. Women lol

    Hi everyone, first post here

    that's the 2 phones I chose between too I really wanted the x10 but hubby convinced me the wildfire was better. He was right (doesn't happen often)
    It is my first android phone but I am very pleased had the phone a week and getting the hang of it thanks to this site :)

    The x10 is such a bad phone. Glad to know us men can be right sometimes. Maybe you could have a word with my other half ;)

    My mum has the X10 i have the wildfire. Wildfire WIN easy.
    low resolution doesn't bother me as all my apps work and developers are making more apps support the low resolution screens so no biggy there.
    I love the wildfire best phone iv had by a long shot. I only paid

    thats a good deal for the Wildfire is that. it does the job. i say seriously consider buying the Wildfire, that is if you cannot afford the desire

    i cant afford the desire and i only use the wildfire for texting and phone calls i hate my mums x10 mini even though it has a capacitive touch screen and 600mhz processor its slow and the screen is very buggy i think. Also the camera ont he X10 being the same and the wildfire is Very poor i have compared picture and you can tell the difference a mile off. with Froyo out for the wildfire there are big changes.
    i would get the wildfire its easy to use well equipped and defo worth the money.

    All HTC's (with a few exceptions) are great. Sony Ericsson are a bit less experienced at this smartphone business.

    Oh and the Wildfire beats the X10 mini (pro) hands down. Every time.

    P.s. Froyo on the wildfire makes it even better.
