I guess since no one has reported the durability of the Inspire 4g in an actual drop. Here is my story. I was getting the baby car seat out of our car and the phone is in my front pocket. The car seat hit my pocket just at the right angle to push it out of my pocket. It dropped from about 4.5 feet onto the parking lot. It went end over end hitting corners and finally slid about 6 inches on the screen. It only has very minor dings on the corners, the screen didn't scratch and only has a few scuffs on the batt. door. It was an epic fall from my pocket. I was pissed, i cussed. Then I looked at my phone and saw the damage and was surprised. It was minor. Sooo..good job HTC.
