The battery life is just pathetic. I had to have a charger constantly on me to get through the day. The phone froze up constantly, making me have to remove the battery and insert it again in order to make it boot up again. On one occasion when it booted, it had done a factory reset, deleting all my apps and information. Also, after that reset, I never was able to load Google Play again, leaving me with the old android market app. I have three acquaintences with the same phone; two of which are just as unsatisfied (so 75% of the people I know, including myself, are totally regretting having made the purchase). I am not giving up on android phones, but any one who asks me, I would insist they do not get any HTC phone whatsoever. You should go with a Samsung or a Motorola instead (or an iPhone if you're an iOS fan).

I got this phone couple of days ago and I am really happy with what I got. First, it was an awesome deal from AmazonWireless and got the phone within 2 days from the day I ordered.

Initial setup was a cake walk and synced all social accounts in a fly. I have to say that having MotoBlur with my previous phone, I am so happy with HTC Sense. Its much more user friendly and easy to use.

Hardware is amazingly fast and responsive and DLNA capabilities of this phone is definitely a plus for media sharing. Another cool feature thats useful is USB internet tethering from phone to laptops while on the go. Gorgeous display and quite good sound quality.

Loving it!!

I got this phone back in August so I have had some months to use it. Overall it is a great phone especially for how much you can get it for. It might not be a dual core phone but it is still nice a snappy. Some good things about it are that it has a nice large screen which I really like, It has a great camera (8mp and 720p video recording), great software (Android 2.3.3) and HTC's interface. Some negative things to consider when buying this is that the camera sticks out in the back so if you set it down it will wobble, the battery door is somewhat of a challenge to pry off. It is a single core phone which can make some things slow, no front facing camera, and it is a little chunky (not too big though).

The htc iteration of android is by far the worst of all phones that I have used (moto, htc, and samsung). Some features on this phone make no sense. Try using the voice-to-text and rotate from portrait to landscape. It just quits the voice feature. Everytime it is plugged in in my car it goes to car mode. Well naturally you would think. But you can't exit unless you unplug it and it limits your features to just a few things. The update bricked my first phone and I've had to factory reset numerous times. Apps that can't be killed, battery that is dead before lunch, and a search feature that can't bring you to what you find is just icing on the cake.

Reporting on the 4G inspire review done by Brad. I agree fully that this phone is superior to the I phone.
I have loaded apps, connected to a router and carried on a conversation all at the same time
with this Android. I've even created my own applications its really amazing how user friendly this device
can be. Furthermore on Bradsreview I have found a way to sideload apps using the Android sideload wonder machine. People, this means no more jailbreaking your phone its very good. Androidforums .com if the link is dead email me and I will compress and zip the file no donations or gratitude needed.
Down with the I phones!

Phone is great.
handles apps very well. The only thing is that HTC Sense that it comes with, drains the battery with it's software bloatware.

I rooted the phone (and flash the ROM), and without all the bloatware, phones screams fast & furious.
Battery is enhance when it's rooted & when you flash a new rom into it. I put cyanogenmod 7 and it works wonders with the battery. (Last %35-40 longer than with the HTC Sense Bloatware)

Overall I give a 4 out 5. (-1 star because of the battery constraints).
It's not as sharp as a retina display, but still looks wonderful side to side versus an iphone 4.

I have had the HTC Inspire 4G for one day and hands down Smokes the Iphone. I jailbroke the phone in about 2 mineutes now on T-Mobile 50 dollar unlimiuted talk and data. AT&T are outright THEIVES they sell data like it was an extinct natural resourse. But back to the HTC vs Iphone Ill just list it off Flash, Hotspot, Teathering(no extra carge) Bluetooth sync,Faster Processer Dolby,HD 8mp cam& camcorder and the list goes on My only concern the operating platform is not time tested and nor as evolved as Apple or until its worldwide crumble Blackberry.

I have had my Inspire for about a month and a half and I love it. Yes the Battery is a bit weak but this is a lot of phone and you kind of have to pick and chose what you want running on it unless you want it to be on the charger all the time. Just got the update to Gingerbread and it's running better than ever with a slightly better battery life. Still waiting for someone to make an extended battery for it but it is better than my origional iPhone or my iPhone 3G was. It's fast, Has a nice screen and does everything I want it to do.

This is a nice phone. The battery dies after a day of normal use but all smartphones do. Talk to text is cool. Android is cool. I havent had any of the problems the other reviewers have had. The phone is very customizable. I prefer it over the iphone because it has a better camera and has expandable memory and call quality is better and no dropped calls.

The Inspire is a good phone especially for the price. HTC's Sense that is running on android is very good but I prefer to have stock android. If you want a true Google Android experience I recommend picking up the Nexus S now that it is available for AT&T. If you want Sense then this is really the only way to go on AT&T. I enjoy this phone but have had a couple issues with the screen not being responsive and with it locking up on me. But for the price, its hard to beat.
