    Which phone would win in a fight?

    I've ordered the giffgaff 'goodybag' sim & I need to get a new phone for using internet on.
    I'm torn between the San Francisco @£99, or the HTC wildfire @ £129.
    So which do you think is best & why?

    Ta very much...

    I think eveybody will say the San Francisco, but i think this is for Orange only, but I'm no expert.

    I was actually looking a tthe Wildfire myself recently, but still haven't taken the plunge

    I have the sanfancisco, great phone.
    Comes on orange but free to unlock, read the thread on here, This phone was the hottest deal of all time- might still be, the thread gives lots of great advice and tips so worth a skim through

    I had the San Fran and I think it is a terrible phone, Ive had a quick play with the Wildfire and it seems much better but I think that's because it has sense on it and that made it feel better/quicker. With the price so close I'd go for the Wildfire.

    SF screen is better so will handle games etc better. Wildfire does have a better camera though.

    As per above SF was pretty fast I'd say.

    Do the SF have a worse screen now? I read they changed the OLED for TFT. Are they still the same resolution?

    fair enough mate, only went by what is listed as hotest deals of all time on the front page. I stand corrected. Still a great phone

    That's not really a deal should have been in Misc lol

    I suppose it depends what you are comparing it to, but the difference between the San fran and Wildfire speed wise seemed very different

    Lol I agree with that

    I've had a nexus one which is probably one of the best android phones and the orange San Francisco wasn't that slow compared to the n1

    shhhh you two! lol

    It depends how important the camera and screen are to you.

    Screen is better on the SF but camera is terrible. If you go for the SF root and flash it, runs lots better.

    Personally, I reviewed the Wildfire here and have owned a San Francisco.

    The wildfire feels really solid, the construction of a brick with the form factor and weight of a candy bar.

    The SF has a lovely screen and is pretty fast. The wildfire is also nearly identical speed wise. With the wildfire you get a really low res screen, with sense. The SF has no sense, but a much much nicer screen. SF is £80, WF is £180. I would go for the SF.

    htc is better at giving software updates. i would go for that for this reason.

    The san francisco has a superior screen, faster processor and better graphic chip. It is the better phone by a mile!

    Thanks all. I've just ordered the SF from prepaymania. Now I just need to figure out how to unlock, root, flash, & put a japanese jellyfish on it whatever the hell that all means!!!
