Also Friend Stream feature in the UI brings all the updates of your friends on social networks such as Facebook, Twitter or Flickr together in one screen.

5 megapixel camera is loaded into the Wildfire S with auto focus and LED flash capabilities, allowing images shot in low light to be clearer and less grainy. You can also record videos through the phone camera at 24 fps.
