The HTC Wildfire S ocomes with a Qualcomm MSM7227 clocked at 600MHz, a 5-megapixel camera with flash, a 3.2in HVGA capacitive display, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, 512MB of RAM, 512MB ROM, a microSD card slot, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, microUSB port, no front facing camera, a 1230mAh battery and Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread.

As for the Galaxy Y, it features a qVGA display (that's 3.2in and 320 x 240 pixels), a Samsung processor clocked at 830MHz, 290MB of RAM, 180MB ROM, a microSD card slot, a 2-megapixel camera with no front facing camera, a 1200mAh battery, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, microUSB, and Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread with TouchWiz UI.

All things considered, the HTC Wildfire S is by far the better option. The Galaxy Y being badly let down by a qVGA screen.
