Samsung Galaxy S 4G vs. HTC Inspire 4G

Wirefly Learn » Android Phones

February 2nd, 2011


The Samsung Galaxy S 4G replaces the Samsung Vibrant on T-Mobile, bringing some powerful new features. In addition to a class-leading 4-inch AMOLED display, the Galaxy S 4G adds a front-facing camera, Android 2.2 and 4G data speed to a phone that was already widely respected. The HTC Inspire on AT&T is also a 4G phone, running on the carrier’s HSPA+ network. In other respects, the Inspire looks a little like a stripped-down version of the popular HTC EVO 4G that runs on Sprint. Although it holds an edge in processor memory as compared to the Galaxy S 4G, the Inspire lacks the front-facing “video chat” camera that the Galaxy S 4G (and EVO 4G) has. How do the Samsung Galaxy S 4G and HTC Inspire compare?
