Summary: I already owned one of these phones. I like it so much I figured if I could find another one at a reasonable price I would get it in case my original breaks. The WebOs operating system is fantastic and I still enjoy using it. The phone works great with excellent call quality. The apps available cover everything I could want to do with my cell phone. Everytime I am tempted to get a newer, more advanced phone, I just use my pre plus and that takes any temptation away.
Summary: Reason I bought it just they are most affordable at the moment. I like the sleek design, slide up qwerty keyborad which convenient to write messaging. It also can view video which with average android with similar specs cant do. But its Webos version still cant be further update since the Palm/HP had retract to develop it anylonger. So you just use what current version available in store. I bought three of them, and use every day for me, my wife & brother in law.
Summary: The Palm Pre Plus was the only phone I never had the pleasure of experiencing, until I found an affordable one and I was amazed by this forgotten phone. I'd say the hardware is hard 3; however, the mobile operating system (webOS) is a 10! It is based on the Linux kernel. I like that it has some aspects of iOS and Android, although fused into one mobile OS with it's own flavor. This is multitasking at it's finest!
Summary: I bought this product to replace an iPhone that had broken. I liked the touch screen and qwerty keyboard option, but the keys were way too small. I also had problems getting the ear piece to work and had to keep the phone on speaker most of the time. I think the product would've lasted me longer, but it broke for a reason outside of the manufacturer's control. :) The apps available were okay, but not as many as the iPhone or Droid has.
Summary: I bought this phone because I believed it was better than the Palm Pixi Plus I had. I expected more in terms of speed of operation and more capabilities. Maybe its me not knowing how to use it better but if my Palm Pixi plus didnt start freezing on Pandora I would still be using it right now.
Summary: I like this phone. The only thing I would add would be a zoom in the camera, it doesn't take the greatest of pictures. And I would also add voice command to it also so you can call someone by the press of a button_ and not just one person at a time.
Excerpt: i find i have i believe a defective one its not that easy to use buttons are small the phone has mind of its own touch screen sometimes hangs up my calls if i move away from face not impressed would do blackberry pearl overagain it does take great pics but i dont like this phone it also has now sometimes will not let me talk to other party unless i have them on speaker this phone mind of its own freezes very very very often also
Excerpt: Loved the capability of this phone. Worst battery life. Could talk for 30 minutes & then had to charge the phone. Could not use phone while charging. I went back to a normal phone that is just for talking and texting.
