Conclusion: The HTC Inspire 4G is a fantastic Android phone and at $99 with a two-year contract (half the price of the Motorola Atrix ) it’s one of the best values on AT&T. HTC reps have told us that it will get an Android 2.3 upgrade fairly soon as well, which will be great. Recently, HTC stock was valued higher than Nokia or RIM. With devices like this and HTC Sense, we can see why.
Pros: HTC Sense is great for new and experienced Android fans, Low $99 price, 4.3-inch screen is spacious
Cons: No front-facing camera, Speakers are a bit weak, Battery cover is difficult to remove, Still runs Android 2.2
HTC Inspire 4G for AT&T review - when is 4G not 4G?
28 February 2011
Summary: The HTC Inspire 4G, like the Motorola ATRIX 4G, is one AT&T's first devices capable of running on its 4G HSPA+ network. It offers a stunning industrial design, a top notch user interface, and an high-spec camera. While some might find that its 4.3-inch screen is a bit bulky, the size of it makes web browsing and media viewing an absolute pleasure.
Pros: Beautiful hardware design, fast 1GHz processor, large 4.3-inch screen, good camera
Cons: Sub-3G data speeds on a "4G" device, mediocre battery life, quiet speaker
Conclusion: AT&T and HTC have a winner in the HTC Inspire 4G. It’s a high end phone with a mid-tier price, and the quality, speed, materials and grand display are simply wonderful. Call quality is top notch and data speeds are solid though AT&T hasn’t yet reached T-Mobile’s HSPA+ or Verizon’s LTE speeds. The Inspire can handle MS Office, email and the web as well as serious multimedia playback, making it the perfect crossover device.
Pros: Fast, huge display, elegant materials and HTC Sense software at a low price., Fast, huge display, elegant materials at a low price. HTC Sense software is our favorite. Very good camera.
Cons: GPS on our unit had issues indoors, battery life just passable.
