Was just playing with the inspire!!!!!

Last Updated:

  1. So I stopped by my best buy this am and as I got there an AT&T regional rep was there. He heard me talking about the Inspire walked over to me a whipped out a brand new Inspire out of his pocket! He said " Here check it out let me know what you think"

    So here is what i saw!

    Phone has exceptional fit and finish and feels perfectly weighted in hand. The soft touch on the aluminum is awesome! It feels great size wise also all those worrying about it being to big dont!

    The sense UI looks incredible on the amazing SUPERLCD the colors are crisp and vibrant and the text is EASILY legible. Internet usage was awesome on that massive screen

    The phone was lighting fast to the touch movement from screen to screen, transitions all extremely fluid. Opening apps was almost simultaneous.

    Camera took great pictures and the camera interface was very good, also the added effects were fantastic.

    the battery door was a bit hard to remove but grabbing in one corner and pulling from that corner it comes up

    sim door was extremely easy to remove

    I placed a call and the call quality seemed great clear, crisp no hiss

    Signal was STRONG a few others had various AT&T phones and they were between 3 and 4 bars and the Inspire stayed steady at full bars.

    Volume rocker was a little stiff but no where near as stiff as some of the reviews made you believe also the power button was easy to depress

    I asked him about battery life and he stated he removes it from the charger at 8 am most mornings and he's using this phone as his primary, he gets on the low end with excessive use 8-9 hours. He said Heavy use is constantly emailing about 25 phone calls a day constant texting with youtube and browsing on down time, With moderate to heavy he said he puts it on the charger at bed time probably closer to 12-13 hours!

    Finally he made this comment on his own, " The Inspire is the best phone on AT&T I took it even over the Atrix."

    STUNNED!!! I LEFT with a massive :D
    If you think i was excited before this morning, forget it LOL after playing with it, and talking to this guy I hate my captivate TOMORROW cant come soon enough!!!

    Hey I would have too, most likely. But still, very awesome that some of these guys are getting to have and/or play with the phones today. One guy got lucky and a store rep, who didn't know about the Inspire release date, upgraded him a day early. Pretty awesome in my book. I guess tomorrow is still my big day. Sad that I can't go to Sams Club and trick a sales rep into selling the phone to me today. :(

  6. well thats another story. long story short AT&T rep was gonna let me take it early Best Buy Mobile manager wouldnt let me :(

    That's awesome you got to handle it. Best I got today was a dummy model at Wally World. They had stock, but told me he couldn't sell it until Monday. Strange. Looking forward to tomorrow! Woot!

    Sweet Andrea!

    I'm trying to resolve a money transfer issue right now, which may or may not hold up my purchase. :(

    Hoping everything goes through smoothly, I really want to pick this up tomorrow!

    Did you ask him what the pricing would be off contract by chance?

    WTF??? Screw the manager, you had a chance to have it early!!! I would have been like, "Now hold up, Mr. Manager (sarcastic), your guy just said I could have this now, I would think that it is in the best interest of a store manager to make a sale. Oh well, guess I'll have to go to Radio Shack...". Manager: "Wait a second... alright, its yours!!!". And everyone wins!!!:p

  13. I knew you were joking ;)

  14. I told him that believe me. Tomorrow when I pick it up there will be words!

    lol. Nice. I probably wont use "words", but if I can't get one in a timely fashion, that could change...:D

  16. I'm usually a very calm and nice person. I deal with customers in my restaurant always. I do not like to treat someone badly but I have spent ALOT of money at best buy and never ask for favors. This one time especially with the ok of At&t I should have gotten the benefit of the doubt not left the store sans a phone of any kind.
