Review: HTC Inspire 4G

The Inspire 4G has an 8 megapixel camera. Images were for the most part pretty good. Focus was accurate the bulk of the time, though the Inspire took its fair share of soft shots. In well-lit settings, grain/noise was completely absent from the resulting images. Colors and white balance were accurate, as well. The only issue I noticed consistently was exposure. Whites were nearly always blown out.

Adding the flash to the mix helps in low-light situations, but remember that flashes are for short-range picture taking. If you want a sharable shot of your friends celebrating a birthday in a dark restaurant, the images will likely turn out pretty good with the flash on. If you us the flash at a concert, expect to see only the back of the head of the person standing in front of you.

The Inspire can record video at up to 720p HD and performs above average.

When the phone is held still, video is sharp, mostly free of noise/grain, and colors look very accurate. If you pan the Inspire about, the video will smear a bit until the phone is still again. In darker environments, details tended to get lost, but when used outdoors, it takes fantastic video.
