As you can see, we have two extremely good phones pitted against each other and they come out with flying colors in most of the departments. While Samsung Galaxy Ace may boast of a faster processor, we did not find it substantially faster in operation. HTC Wildfire’s user interface is mind blowing but does not come with many pre installed apps. HTC Wildfire S has Android 2.3 compared to Samsung Galaxy Ace’s Android 2.2 but then HTC’s audio does not measure up to its brand.

So what is the verdict in HTC Wildfire S vs. Samsung Galaxy Ace? I personally have liked HTC Wildfire S but that does not make Samsung Galaxy Ace any inferior. Sorry, we do not have a straight winner here; it depends on what you are looking for. Samsung price in India is just a few hundred bucks more though!
