The only thing of course would be the battery life, but I kind of knew this issue because I read a lot on forums and I got prepared with a charger at home, at the office and the car charger.
I actually like the feel of the Galaxy S (Captivate, to be specific. Never held any of the other versions). I thought the build quality felt excellent, with it's metal back plating. I liked the thinness and weight, and it still felt solid to me. If I could make the perfect phone, I'd put the Inspire (software & RAM) inside
the Captivate's externals (and leave its 2GB of application memory). That's just me. I think I am in the minority. I think the Inspire feels too bulky, in comparison, sometimes. That being said, I still think the Inspire is the best Android device available on AT&T, I'm just not a huge fan of its build style.
