Isn't this phone just an EVO?

    It sure seems like this phone is just an Evo with a different display and no front facing camera. Am I wrong?

    Which phone... do you have a link, or a screen shot of what you're talking about?

    He's referring to the Inspire 4g. People having been comparing it to the HTC Wildfire, which is the Europe version of the Evo. It's good to see a high end phone on the at&t network -- but the real test will see how these phones fare on the network.

    I believe most of these phones are look-a-like of the Evolution(evo)

    Similar size, same size screen (is the Evo a SuperLCD?) but the Inspire uses a newer processor, has more RAM,and more internal memory. The Evo has HDMI out, a front facing camera and a kickstand.

    Edit, I thought the OP was referring to the EVO 4G on Sprints network.

    This is my point. Is this really a high end phone? The Evo has been out since around June. This phone actually offers less features it seems.

    The main differences between the HTC EVO 4G and the HTC Inspire 4G...

    The HTC Inspire 4G has no front facing camera, no HDMI output, no kick stand, more memory, more ROM, and a Super LCD screen.

    Am I missing anything?

    I think you about summed it up more or less. As for this being a high end device. I would say it is, ATT hasn't offered much in terms of good android phones. I think the inspire will stack up against other carriers "high end" devices. It might be missing a couple features but I don't need a front facing camera or kickstand. To some people that might be a deal breaker or grounds to not call it a "high end" device. I am okay with it being compared to the evo, the evo is a great device and the inspire has the newer snapdragon and I guess a different screen.

    If you are talking about the Inspire then it would be more like, The Desire HD.
     

  10. Exactly its a more advanced Desire HD not an EVO the evo lacks in many ways

    The main difference to my thinking is the .45nm snap dragon processor which run smuch cooler and uses much less power than the Evos .65nm. Plus it has i think 3x as much ram with 768mb. And the display is 4.3 inch super LCD. It also runs on the newest Sense which is said to be a huge leap forward, and it is 4ghz hspda+ capable. The HTC media port will also be sold as an accessory which was not avail with the evo (but was with the desire HD)...

    AT&Ts 4ghz network (although not online yet) is said to be much faster and more widespread than pretty much anyone elses (verizon included)

    Thats "for starters"
     

  14. Yea pretty much all this plus better battery life even with the smaller battery. The sense 2.0 is a huge leap forward. The 2nd gen snapdragon is also much faster and smooth. The rear casing is one piece of aluminum. The screen is SuperLCD when the evo is just LCD the ram is 768 compared to the evo 258 etc.etc

    so the new sense from what i saw on another thread that said the new sense on the inspire it looks pretty cool like the way it handles web pages in windows, and how customizable it is..im really torn between this phone and the atrix. i have never used sense or motoblur for that matter
     

  16. I have used both and.sense is a more.mature and useful UI it actually brings useful things to android unlike motoblur that is just se widgets. Also the sense is very polished adds nice looks to android unlike the kidlike look of motoblur

    :cool:
    As an experiment go to another forum, don't tell them you are looking at inspire vs atrix and start a discussion about the new sense versus motoblur and touch wiz...see what feed back you get. :cool:

    I seriously thought this was a troll at first.
     
  21. some people actually are a bit confused because the HTC's have a strong familial look, but if you see an EVO then an Inspire you will see the diff right away

    no im not a troll man lol i just have 5 lines with att and 2 of them are ready for upgrades so i didnt know if i should move to sprint even though ill only be saving 20 to 30 dollars. and the whole sense vs. motoblur i really didnt know what the difference were, like i said before iphones is all i have had and well the razr back then. thanks to all of you for your opinions i think the inspire looks better than the evo specs wise so i might stick to att.
     

  23. Good choice man. AT&T plus inspire winning combo :)
