Review: HTC Inspire 4G
Due to the pervasiveness of the software phone button on the home screens, getting to your phone calls is pretty easy. By default, it opens with the dial pad on the bottom half of the screen and your top favorites above it.
The phone app automatically sorts through your contacts as you dial a number or type a name, so you can easily jump though a large contact database quickly.

If you've synced the Inspire 4G with a Facebook account, the device automatically adds not only your friends' Facebook profile pictures to their contact info, it also ports over any phone numbers stored in their Facebook profile. This feature isn't unique to the Inspire 4G, though.
Sense also provides a great home screen widget for managing your top contacts, with easy-to-use controls for calling, texting or emailing them with minimal effort. The main contact app has a neat slider control on the bottom that lets you sort between different contact databases, such as on-device, Google, Exchange, and social networks.
The synergy between the calling and contacts apps is very well done with Sense. I like what HTC has done to make them one tool, rather than separate functions.
