This is the best phone on AT&T, and the first phone I've used that is a true competitor to the iPhone for the average consumer. It's no "iPhone killer", because that doesn't exist. But it's easy to use, looks great, is well built and provides a great user experience. quote

I see the HTC Inspire as the most mainstream of AT&T's three upcoming Android super-phones—the Samsung Infuse 4G is even bigger, and the Motorola Atrix may be too much phone for some people. For now, though, the HTC Inspire can hold its own with the best American smartphones.

The HTC Inspire 4G is an excellent addition to AT&T's somewhat bare lineup of Android phones, but we had a hard time achieving "4G" speeds in our tests.

It's just good enough that first-time owners will find a lot to love, but by the end of the two-year agreement, the only inspiration they'll be feeling is to upgrade. Thanks to the huge strides Android made over the last year, there will surely be plenty to choose from.

The HTC Inspire 4G is a fantastic Android phone and at $99 with a two-year contract 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.

The Inspire 4G is an extremely well-rounded phone. The screen is gorgeous, the software is well-tuned, and it is a bit "future proof. If you're looking for one of the best large-screen Android phones on the market today, the Inspire 4G is hard to beat.

This phone really has all the ingredients to make me love it, but it just seemed to be lacking. It's sexy, built like a tank, huge beautiful screen, not plasticy, it should be a no-brainer homerun. Overall if you aren't looking for 4g speeds, and are able to (like me) charge your phone often...

I changed carriers so I went from the Incredible to Inspire. I liked the Inspire but the battery life was not very good. What really bugged me was trying to remove the cover. It is unreasonably difficult. I broke the volume rocker removing it.

This phone has RUINED my life. It almost never works and when it does, it only works for short periods of time before it turns off or needs to be restarted. For some reason, the screen likes to stay blank while I press the power/unlock key while the touch-buttons on the bottom light up. I...

Overall, a fantastic HTC phone. Great display and design and frequent updates to the Sense OS keep me up to date. Love the screen size and ability to customize everything! The only noticeable downside is battery life. For someone like me who is constantly utilizing every aspect of this phone, my...

The Insipire 4G is a typical run-of-the-mill Android 2.2 phone with HTC Sense for AT&T. In no way are it's features innovative, but as a daily phone for the comfortable smartphone user not looking for all the latest market gimmicks and buzzword features (no 3D viewing or camera, no dual-core...
