Looks good but....

Peter J., Newegg
4 June 2012
  • Summary: I thought I will be able to live with some flaws but since there will be no further OS release for this phone, I should have think twice.
  • Pros: Good price, phone is well made. Have been using the phone for over 2 months now. Dropped it twice but it still works fine.
  • Cons: 1. No spell check. It can do few basic text conversion such as 'u' to 'you' but no spell check in general. 2. Can not change font size for SMS and address book. The small screen worsen the situation. 3. The send button is too close to the end-of-line in SMS. I accidentally sent out unfinished SMS...

Small phone

josh l., Newegg
5 January 2012
  • Summary: After going to verizon and trying to purchase their cheapest phone, i was informed that their cheapest phone was around 120$. For 50$ I knew i couldnt be picky, but it barely lasted 3 months with minimal use.
  • Pros: small and cheap, got me through the end of my contract with verizon.
  • Cons: small and cheap. faulty after 1 month, completely crashed after 3 months. Size and specs. were given so i knew it would be small, but it was way too small for my hands.

Disappointing...

Thomas S., Newegg
14 October 2011
  • Summary: I had an LG EnV Touch before this phone. I knew this wasn't a top-shelf smart phone, but I never expected it to be a DOWNGRADE. I'm pretty disappointed with it.
  • Pros: WebOS may be possibly a dead OS, but it is cool, intuitive, clean. I like WebOS. I like the shape of the phone, the sleek back, the neat little magnetic cover over the USB plug.
  • Cons: Biggest con: battery is atrocious. If I don't use it, I still need to charge it around 2PM to keep it from going dead. Given the price I could accept any of its other faults but now I'm shopping for an Android. Our building has poor reception, but no other of my co-workers smartphones have troubl...

Covers=the fatal Pixi flaw.

Steven M., Newegg
5 May 2011
  • Summary: My military husband destroyed his with "normal" use (killed the screen) within 4 months, I--the gentler half--have the issue with the cover peeling away. He did too before he broke his identical Pixi.
  • Pros: What everyone else said. For a phone that isn't an iphone or a droid, and is reasonably priced (some carriers like mine are making this the go-to free smartphone for plan upgrades) this one's pretty nice. I'm able to Facebook and email, and I bookmarked a few of those funny blogs you can read whe...
  • Cons: The number one "fatal flaw" for me, which others don't report due to the time they've spent using this (they are new to it)...most users discover within 1-3 months of normal usage that the rubbery back cover will warp and peel from the sides, the tiny magnetic doorflap covering the USB port will ...

Not all there

C. Weiser, Amazon
20 September 2010
  • Summary: The Palm Pixi is my first smartphone. I bought it to finish out my contract on Verizon and to port over to Page Plus so I can have a smartphone without paying for a data plan. The Good: The basic functionality of the phone is great.

Buggiest phone I've ever used, but super inexpensive

emma force, Amazon
18 September 2010
  • Summary: I bought the Palm Pixi Plus because it was inexpensive, a 'smartphone', and I was ditching my Verizon contract in favor of Page Plus, where I could use data and wifi without Verizon's ridiculous charges.

A Disappointment for Android Users but It's a Good Phone

Sarah Pierce, Amazon
6 August 2010
  • Summary: Being a Palm newbie and an almost consistent Andriod user..... I hated this phone. There was nothing wrong with the phone itself, but I did not like it. I'm only posting this review as a warning to Android users, you will not like this phone. The app market has almost nothing.

User Review

Craig Duncanson, Cnet.co.uk
2 November 2010
  • Summary: A stopgap for me before moving onto something I can get my teeth into - currently thinking about the HTC HD7. The Palm Pixi Plus is small but manageable, fits into any pocket, bag etc.
  • Pros: The operating system is pleasant to use and works well. Keyboard although small, is easy to use.
  • Cons: Sluggish, can be very irritating sometimes to do something very simple
