I also am liking the Inspire but this battery situation has me thinking twice.... Ok, so the Inspire has the 2nd gen Snapdragon SOC, which is more efficient. So you would THINK that HTC would use the common standard 1500mAh battery in there so that the phone would actually benefit and have one of the best battery lives of ANY smartphone (battery life to me is the biggest issue w/ smartphones today). So what is the point of having a more efficient phone when you actually lower the battery capacity? It's almost like they cancel each other out and there is no benefit. I don't want to have to jump thru any hoops to get better battery life on a new phone. So I'm hoping I am wrong and HTC knows what they are doing!
