    Can you say jealous?

    Wow, an electronic device with no lag. I was pretty happy with my phone after froyo came out, but I had to go and do that.

    Someone tell me that the grass is not greener...

    Lie to me :)

    the phone looks really nice, but it's just sooo big for me. i have small hands and the captivate is already a big phone for me.

    i think if a phone is bigger than 4", then it becomes less of a smartphone ...

    i also like the screen on the captivate. super AMOLED is pretty awesome and that's where the captivate shines. i think if i didn't have the captivate, i would look at the inspire. i do wish the inspire's screen size was a little smaller and the battery would be better. people say the battery on the captivate is bad, the battery on the inspire is even worse (i suppose this is subjective because some don't have that problem).

    but if you're due for an upgrade, you can always switch to the inspire.

    the screen, battery, internal memory(inspire only has 4gb i think), and sense(i hate it, i have no clue why people like it) all keep me with the captivate and i could upgrade if i wanted, but if i did i would never use it because i like my captivate better

    Anyone Play with the Atrix and realize that they'd rather still keep their cappy?

    Got my wife an Inspire through Costco for $20. She seems to really like it. I will leave it stock for her since she's not into messin' with it. My Cappy is alot faster since I'm rooted and flashed with Paragon RC6. I am holding out for the Infuse! I upgrade in August, hope it's out by then.

    i really like the inspire, great phone with an unbelievable price. When i place my captivate side by side or one on top of the other, physically they are almost exactly the same size. If I had an upgrade right now I would get one......

    I had the Atrix for two weeks, then returned it. Wasn't happy that Moto had gone back on their word to decrypt the bootloader, and I was less then amused that my supposed 4G phone was getting speeds slower than my Captivate - and I live in an area where 4G is already supposedly available.

    I have the Captivate as my personal phone right now and the Inspire as my business phone. The Captivate is rooted, sideload enabled, ROM'd, etc...the Inspire is Stock.

    The Inspire feels more solid in my hands, like it's made of better quality materials, and it has a bit of weight to it (contributing to that "solid" feel). The Captivate feels almost...chintzy...in comparison. The Inspire doesn't have the AMOLED screen, but I find that it's still very readable/viewable...don't have nearly the complaints with it as I did with the Atrix.

    The battery had to be tuned (like the Captivates) ... now if I pull them off the charger at the same time, they tend to run down about the same...and I've got identical Tasker profiles on both, so they're both syncing with about the same frequency durning the day.

    I'm generally pleased with the Inspire - to the extent that my next "personal" phone may well be another HTC. That'll depend on what comes out this summer though!

    The biggest single issue that keeps me on the Captivate is the beautiful, amazing SAMOLED screen. It's a travesty that Samsung is just about the only manufacturer using these screens... their skills at getting everything else right with a phone (updates, GPS, proprietary filesystems, weird non-stock changes, etc) are so abysmal that they really don't deserve to have the best screens. The decision of what phone to get should be easier.
