HTC Inspire 4G Review
8.8

Description

HTC Inspire 4G is one of the bigger smartphones, with 4.3" screen and a line of capacitive keys below it. We guess it will be very similar to what Europe has in the face of the HTC Desire HD, but with AT&T's 3G bands. It packs the latest version of HTC's Sense user interface.

Cons

  • Thick body (0.46 inches)

Wasn't a big fan
Phone owned for more than a year

I received it used but used it afterwards for a good 3-4 years. The phone is fairly heavy and I encountered problems with it overheating or shutting off randomly. The battery was pretty bad and I had to purchase another charger because the old one was worn down. It only had 7 GB of usable memory on it and I found myself running out towards the end of my using it. Overall it was an okay phone, it did its job and lasted me a long time. However, it was also outdated for me and it was definitely time for a change.

My first smartphone
Phone owned for more than a year

I had the inspire as my first smart phone and I was happy for the long run. Near the end of its life, it really started to slow down and freeze and lock a lot. But all in all, it was a great first starting phone and I will always rememebr it.

Inspire
Phone owned for more than a year

One of the worst phones I've owned. After my wonderful HTC Vivid's screen shattered and aux input quit working on me, I decided to get this Inspire to hold me over til my upgrade. Going from Vivid to Inspire is like going back in time. The battery life is almost non-existent, the camera is pretty awful (photos will blur due to slow shutter,) the single core processor is very noticeable! The phone glitches constantly: randomly restarting on its own, freezing up and causing me to remove battery (not an easy feat,) apps freeze and shut down on their own, too. Resolution isn't the best. This phone is durable for the most part. The buttons for volume control did break off (but I'm sure having to constantly fiddle with the battery cover played a big part in that.) Speaker phone is quiet, media volume is quiet, alarm is loud.
