First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
Top smartphones: Best buys (August 2011)
- — 24 August, 2011 14:17
Looking for a smartphone on a budget? You should look no further than PC World Australia's best buys. These smartphones are a rank of the top 10 handsets based on perceived value for money.
Although the smartphone market is dominated by Apple's iPhone, it isn't exactly the cheapest proposition. It is here in the best buy category that Google's Android platform shines through, making up the entire 10 selections in our August list.
The best buys for August is topped by the Huawei Sonic, which sells for just $188 in supermarket chain Woolworths and electronics retailer Dick Smith. HTC is the most popular best buy smartphone vendor in August, with a high four models including the new Desire S which is exclusive to Telstra.
9 / 10
HTC's Wildfire S offers decent value for money, but doesn't come without compromises. However, those looking for a relatively compact and affordable smartphone are likely to be pleased with its combination of excellent build quality and intuitive software.
