HTC Inspire 4G: Affordable and Entertaining


Call quality was good in San Francisco. Callers sounded loud, clear and natural over the line. My friends said that they could hear very little background noise while I was standing on a busy city street corner. I experienced no dropped calls nor any static or distortion during my tests.


The Inspire is an excellent addition to AT&T's line-up and is a solid Android alternative to the iPhone 4. The display, good camera and variety of apps available in the make it an excellent phone for entertainment. I'm not totally convinced that it deserves the "4G" in its name, but that might be due to where I was trying to test the network. Still, "4G" implies speed and while the Inspire certainly wasn't slow, it wasn't blazingly fast over the network either.
