I just purchased a thunderbolt. They're basicly the same device. Yes, its still a great buy. Throw cm7 or ics sense on it and call it a day.

Give us more info. Do you have an upgrade coming up or something? It's still a good phone that runs android relatively smooth. But there are many better offerings.

Sure it's a real solid phone, but if you're upgrading from the carrier and getting their discount I'd go for newer technology personally. I won't be replacing my inspire till it dies or I find a ROM that needs a faster processor, but I don't think i'd actually buy one new.

Honest opinion, as much as I'd like to get a new phone (one x), my inspire suplies me with everything I expect from a smartphone, but if I were to upgrade from, say a OG Droid or something from those parameters, I'd get a newer phone.

I've had my Inspire since Feb 2011 and I still love it. Since you can probably get one for next to nothing now, it's a great buy. But I agree that if I was going to upgrade right now I'd get one of the newer devices to maximize my discount.

Thumbs up Inspire 4G
I have had my inspire since June of last year. It was my first Android phone coming from an iPhone and I love it. It does everything I ask of it and is very hackable. I have lost track long ago of the number of different Roms I have try ed on it and it seems to keep getting better. And since I will not be able to get an upgrade from AT&T till January I'll just keep trucking with it and enjoying it.

I traded my Titan 2 for an Inspire (+ cash) and I'm so happy. The phone is EXCELLENT! To me, the default GB ROM with Sense was super ugly and reminded me of my old HD2 when it was running on Windows 6.5. So within an hour of having the phone, I rooted it and put ICS on it and I can proudly say, the Inspire is here to stay .

I sold my new galaxy note for 500$ and bought an inspire for 160$.... I'm happy with the decision

I thoroughly enjoy this phone, but with all of the new and fancier ones coming out, I would lean towards those. Then again I like to mess with things a lot, so if you're looking simply for a solid phone, the Inspire definitely fits that description.
