The range of Smartphones is increasing at a very rapid, with the increase in the range there is a huge drop in the prices due to tough competition in the market. Same is the case with the Micromax Android Handset, Micromax A60 and HTC’s Handset, HTC Wildfire. Both these phones are Android phones, and are very cheap and available at affordable price. When you go into the market, you will get confused, with which handset should I go. So I thought of clarifying the doubt of our readers by comparing both the phones.
If you are looking for a quick and general comparison in the terms of specifications, then you can find them here:
Here is the detailed comparison of both the phones. The feature which is visible from outside, is the style, design and beauty of the phone.
Looks and Style
Micromax Android A60 looks more like a Professional Phone. It means it will make you feel like, you are having a business phone in your hands. It has body of Black color with 3 buttons in the front panel. The phone is having curved shape from the screen side and bottom side. On the back of the phone, it is having a stylish camera slot. Overall: The phone looks good.
HTC Wildfire looks more beautiful and stylish than Micromax A60 (In my opinion). The designing finish of the phone is beautifully done. HTC Wildfire is curved a bit from the sides and its huge screen adds more beauty to it. The front panel of the phone contain only one button and other button are just like touch buttons, so they are not categorized in the Physical button category.
Leader of Looks & Style: HTC Wildfire
Screen & Display
When it comes to the size of Screen, Micromax Android A60 is having a display of 2.8-Inches TFT Touchscreen and having the resolution of 240 X 320 Pixels. The biggest disadvantage is the screen is “Resistive” in Micromax A60, which makes tough to use it.
HTC Wildfire, it is having “Capacitive” Touchscreen of 3.2-Inches. The quality of the screen is TFT with 16M colors and it supports the resolution of 240 X 320 pixels. The screen is Non-AMOLED in HTC Wildfire. Capacitive is the advantage which makes the touch experience smooth and awesome.
Leader of Screen & Display: HTC Wildfire
OS (Operating System)
Both the phones are running on Android OS, but the Version and upgrading capability of the phone matters a lot.
Micromax A60 comes with Android 2.1 Éclair, and it can be upgradable to Android 2.2 Foryo. However the same is repeated with HTC Wildfire, but the UI i.e. HTC Sense UI leads the OS. The user interface which is integrated in HTC phones with Android OS is an awesome combination. HTC Sense UI is brilliant and work flawlessly on the Wildfire.

Camera & Photography
In terms of photo shooting and Camera quality, Micromax Android A60 is having a camera of 3.15 MP with NO FLASH and having the resolution of 2048 X 1536 Pixels. It supports Auto-focus and Video Recording too. But sadly, the picture quality of the camera is not up to the mark.
On the other hand, HTC Wildfire is having Camera of 5 MP with LED Flash and provides the resolution of 2592 X 1944 Pixels. The camera supports Auto-focus, Geo Tagging, Smile Detection & Touch-to-focus feature. Wit the help of Geo-Tagging feature, you can tag the photos with the location, where you have clicked them. This feature is used with the help of GPS functionality of the phone. It also supports Video Recording.

Android OS is powerfully dependent upon the processor and processing speed of the phone. Micromax A60 comes up with 600 MHz Processor. Whereas the HTC Wildfire is having 528 MHz Qualcomm Processor with 384 MB RAM & 512 MB of ROM. The difference of processor is just negligible between both the phones. But we have to get one leader out of it.

Memory is the most crucial part of a Smartphone. If I talk about Micromax A60 it is having Internal Memory of 150 MB with the external card support of up to 32 GB.
