    I'm looking to get a new phone, haven't changed since about 5 years (still have nokia 6500 slide!) so I'm looking to get something decent and new

    Can anyone tell which of these phones would be the best and why? Any experiences with these phones would be great

    Haha have you downloaded any apps yet? Does it freeze much, and how fast is it?

    If there's one thing I hate it's phones that take ages move from one application to the other, or crash a lot.

    Get the Desire then.
    The Wildfire is a laggy little ***** and the X10 mini is only slightly better.
    Do you think it's worth paying extra just for the better speed? Or is the Desire better for other things too?

    Wildfire and X10 is about the same price.

    Desire is much better, faster, bigger screen (and higher res).
    Wildfire/X10 mini are very much budget phones, if you want the true smart/Android phone experience then get the Desire.
    ^this.

    However, the Desire is very much becoming a last gen phone, and with the advent of the Desire Z, Nexus S, and the upcoming phones with Tegra 2 chips, it might be worth waiting until after the January releases and spending a little more on something significantly more powerful and time proof

    Nearly every phone this year will be a last gen phone however you must realise the OP seems to be on a tight budget there's no way they'd get a new Tegra or Dual core phone when it's released for this kind of money. She;d need to wait a whole year.

    The Desire is far better than the Wildfire and X10 mini, the difference is really remarkable.

    I was just making sure that she knew :P Nobody wants to be in a position where they think they've bought a top of the range phone and find that it's out-dated within a week

    I have the X10 Mini Pro and it's an okay phone. A lot of people think that it'd be annoying to use because of its size but you get used to it (some apps might look a bit weird on it, but it's still a good phone for the price). The slide out keyboard is sooo good too, and although the layout of the keys also seems awkward, you do get used to it.

    The only big problem with the X10 Mini Pro is the battery though; a normal phone battery like you'd find in one of Sony Ericssons cybershot phones powers it, so you find yourself charging it all too often >.>

    But as I said, good phone for the price

    eek! Sorry, was just going by the guy who I'd quoted, didn't bother checking :P

    Definitely the Wildfire then - if only because the community/dev support is significantly better for HTC phones in general than it is for SE...
