I absolutely love my HTC Wildfire. I love the way it feels in my hand, I love the way it looks and I especially love its size. It runs on Android 2.2 which I also love. I even love being a HTC customer.
Enough of that! In one week from next friday, I will have had my HTC Wildfire for one year. Happy birthday baby. But, I am starting to ask myself the question, “is it time to upgrade?”. I don’t particularly want to upgrade as I am happy with what I have. Or at least I was.
Lately my little phone friend is misbehaving and I am curios as to why. It doesn’t make any sense. I was forgiving of the fact that the built in antenna could be a lot better as it looses its connection and then stays lost until it is switched off and the on again. This leads me to my first question, Why is there not a restart button, it makes sense, doesn’t it? After all the phone is running on an operating system, something similar to a windows PC restart option would be so much less hassle.
As I said though, I can live with that. What I am beginning to find annoying is the void. The Blackness. The Dead sock. What is happening a lot lately is my phone just gives up. The screen goes blank, and no matter what I do it stays blank. At least with issue number one all I have to do is switch it off, wait, confirm that I want to switch it off, wait, then switch it on and wait and wait and wait a little longer. Now I have to remove the back cover to remove the battery, replace the battery, switch it on and wait, wait and wait.
Now if issue number one wasn’t indeed an issue, then issue number two could possibly be bearable. But! When issues one and two strike on the same day it becomes frustrating to say the least. I find that my phone is off more often than it is on “granted this is only when this extreme coincidence occurs, but it occurs too often”.
So I direct this question to my friends at HTC (@HTC), What’s going on?
