I love this phone!! I got the HTC Inspire when it first came out (first day). The only thing I didn't like was that there was no front facing camera. So when I heard about the HTC Holiday, I was wondering when that would come out. I just picked up the HTC Vivid (added a line so I didn't have to pay full price on it). First thing I noticed was how light the phone is and how the display looked. The colors really stood out on it and the display was enough to sell it to me on the spot without playing around with it. The operating system, 2.3.4, was something I have on my HTC Flyer. Even though I upgraded the OS on the Inspire, it has nothing on it. Everything is very smooth with this phone. Bonus: I was able to keep my unlimited data plan and upgraded the 4G plan to the 4G LTE with Visual Voicemail. Accessories: I got the Impact case from Otterbox along with Visor AG *I think that is what it is called - screen protector. I can barely notice it and they put it on the phone for me. Other things I like: the set up of the messages. It's no longer plain.. and I get these IM messaging text like boxes in color. The camera takes amazing pictures as well. The front facing camera could have better quality, but it still does the job. The 4G symbol does appear and I have not had any connection problems so far. Another thing I just noticed is that when you move between screens, it doesn't stop at left or right. It will let you 'scroll' to the other side so it makes one big circle. Overall, I am extremely satisfied with this phone. It is very fast and smooth.
