    Dear AndroidForum.com visitors

    I've a few questions but first of all I'd like to say that I'd like to buy one of these 2 smartphones because I want to buy a quite cheap Android phone but I'm a bit worried and have a few questions...

    1) A friend of mine has got a Samsung Galaxy S (16GB) and I could test it and I have to say the applications worked perfect on this device! My question is, can we open and use all the applications that are available on the Android Marketplace on the LG Optimus One or on the HTC Wildfire??? Will every app work on one of those 2 smartphones??? Because I don't know if the resolution of the screen plays a factor in this case???

    Or would it be that some applications will not work anyway?

    2) Are there differences by using and opening applications between for example stronger smartphone like Samsung Galaxy S or HTC Desire Z and for example LG Optimus One or HTC Wildfire ?

    If yes, what are the main differences between those smartphones by using and opening apps? Does all the apps work on every device? If not, why not?????

    3) AND my last question is... Very soon there will be the next HTC Wildfire, namely the HTC Wildfire S with Android 2.3 gingerbread!

    What about this phone??? Let's say if I buy the Wildfire S, do you think that every app on the marketplace will work on it???

    I'm just worried about the screen resolutions and I'm asking myself if the screen resolutions plays a role in opening any apps from the marketplace for those very cheap smartphones like I wrote before???

    For example:

    Would the following applications work on the LG Optimus One or on the HTC Wildfire? See bellow:

    - TVU Player
    - SPB TV
    - Alarm Clock
    - CamCard Lite
    - LensFlare
    - iBooks
    - ... etc. etc.

    I'm just asking those questions because I heard from some people that playing some hardcore games aren't impossible to play it on LG Optimus One or on the HTC Wildfire so I'm asking myself if I will have the same problem with using applications???

    Or can I just open without trouble every app with an LG Optimus One or on the HTC Wildfire or maybe a HTC Wildfire S???

    You gotta give people time - two hours isn't very long. :)

    Screen resolution isn't usually a factor for apps the same way it is for games; the only real restriction is if an app is only supported by certain versions of Android. With both of these running Android 2.x that won't be an issue afaik.

    Yes, a more powerful CPU and more RAM make a difference. Will you notice it in real-life? Probably only in a side-by-side test, unless the app is particularly demanding.

    Pretty much yes, as this is the most recent version of the OS. Besides, the Market will only display apps that are compatible with your handset. :)

    The app developer will usually state in the description if the app is not suitable for certain resolutions, but as a general rule most support all those found in popular devices such as the handsets you mention.
