Review: HTC Inspire 4G

Browser

The browsing experience on the Inspire 4G is really no different than that of any other Android phone running Android 2.2. The same set of tools is available for controlling and interacting with the browser, and the large screen means web content has more breathing space.

Flash content worked pretty well, and most normal in-line video played back as intended. Browsing speeds weren’t as slow as I feared they’d be (based on the poor speed test performance). Web sites didn’t load lickety split, but they weren’t slow either. Most sites, including intensive ones such as NYTimes.com, popped up in the 8- to 12-second range.

Customize

Thanks in part to HTC's Sense software, the Inspire 4G can be customized by end users more than most. Wallpapers, live (animated) wallpapers, ringtones, alerts, picture IDs, etc., can all be adjusted.

Because the Inspire 4G has 7 home screens, widgets, shortcuts and apps spread across those screens make for a highly personalized experience. Throw in the extra, customizable Scenes (different profiles for the home screens that allow for different app configurations based on usage -- i.e., Work, Play, Weekend, etc.) that Sense offers, and the sky’s the limit when it comes to making the Inspire 4G your own.
