I just got my htc inspire 4G (ATT) a couple weeks ago and absolutely love it. It's my first smart phone, and I'm honestly not sure how I lived without them lol. It's fast, and has a nice large screen. I don't have netflix myself, but I do love watching my HD movies and tv shows on it that I have stored.

The only thing that I dislike about my phone is the short battery life. It's not a problem for me usually because I'm usually near a power source all day and leave it plugged in a lot while I use it. However when I went on vacation, I was getting annoyed because it would die every day before I could get back to the hotel, so if you can't keep it charged all the time, then from what I got from my research is that the Samsung Infuse is basically the same phone as mine with a bigger screen, much longer battery, and a slightly different style interface. It's a bit more expensive, but still within your budget.

I've found that when you ask this question, you're going to get a ton of posts of people saying they either love or hate their phone. Plus if you're like me I'm sure you're going to do a lot of research before buying, too. All that is great, but everything really comes down to user preference. I hate my sister's phone that she absolutely loves. Thus I think it's best to go try out the phones to find out what you like. Go to the cell phone store and just walk around trying them out. That's why they're there. It's even better if someone you know has a phone that they like that you might. Ask them if you can try it out. It helps.

My Samsung Epic 4G is a great phone. Switched to Sprint from AT&T last January. Samsung is a bit slow to update their phones. No real complaints with Samsung or Sprint so far though. My experience has been that 4G, Seattle-Tacoma area, is good for streaming video. 3G is hit and miss. Mostly miss.
