    My old samsung broke so I need to buy a new one.
    My budget goes as far as an Iphone 3gs.
    Iphone 3gs has better games and a better system menu but it's 150 pounds more expensive.
    While HTC Wildfire S has Android, has SOME great gamesand is ... well cheaper.

    Oh and here is a link for the two:http://www.amazon.co.uk/Apple-iphone-3G-Black-8GB/dp/B001MTDHK8/ref=sr_1_3?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1315987062&sr=1-3

    I would go with the Wildfire since I don't like Iphone for gaming.
    Plus 150 Pounds more is steep!

    The comparison is sort of weird.
    iPhone 3GS would still be considered medium-high ranged, where as the wildfire is a low end one.

    The wildfire's display: TFT capacitive touchscreen, 256K colors
    Only 256K colours..
    OS is gingerbread, which is suprisingly not too bad.

    Umm, you're mistaken.
    The OS isn't gingerbread.It's Android.

    LOL.
    Gingerbread = Android 2.3
    Anyway, go with the iPhone. Specs are way better.

    Suggestion: Go to the stores and test your two smartphones to compare and decide for yourself. It is better than people's opinions because an opinions are always inaccurate. For me, I pick iPhone 4 after I had 3GS because I have reasons and I test few myself before I decided for the right one and I did.. [​IMG]

    Android 2.3 is decent, but there are various complaints over this phone.

    You might want to check it out. I find gsmarena pretty much accurate.

    They're two very different beasts so trying to compare the two is crazy; the iPhone is far more powerful. You need to think about what you want your phone to do and go from there, if the Wildfire S meets your needs then there's no sense spending the extra money. Don't just jump on the iPhone because it's a popular name; there are plenty of other handsets in the Wildfire S' price bracket and in between the two that might do the job.

    Incidentally I have the Wildfire S and I really like it. My budget was much smaller than yours though, and I had a very good idea of what I needed it to do so I knew it'd fit the bill for me.

    An HTC Desire (nothing/Z/S/any other reiteration they made)

    HTC Desire is just a phone, Desire Z has slide out keyboard, Desire S is faster.
