At most she will be using it for some pics (which will stay in the phone for the most part as she has no computer) and receiving messages with photos that I send from my end for example...which is also why I feel the bigger screen is a better idea.
But then again, maybe I am missing something and the Blaze is just that much better. At least some benchmarks I saw should put it ahead of the HTC, that is for sure..and she may like the rich AMOLED color more too.
Any other choices you want to recommend are also welcome.
Well, it all goes down to the processor, then its built off of the features.
The inspire doesn't have a Front Facing Camera (FFC) or a fast processor. The blaze has a lower MP count than the Inspire as well as a smaller screen.
But both these devices are dated. Now, sticking with HTC sense or Samsung's TW is a different story.
Both of these skins are heavy and if you root it and install custom firmware, you'll notice a huge difference in the blaze's battery and performance compared to stock. Ex. With Heavy usage: 6-7hours on Tw. On a newer rom, lets say Carbon for example, i get a few more hours about 9-10 a day. Light usage will make the phone last 24 hours. I once hit 29 hours
