Where is the battery life on this phone?

  • Excerpt: Seriously to be a smartphone they couldn't make the battery life "smarter" and longer.  I have no choice but to have a car charger b/c even after charge the phone ALL night, if I leave it on all day and talk for more than 5 minutes, that's a wrap on the phone!  Now some may say I have too many apps on the phone but a different smartphone I previously owned as twice as more apps and battery life.

  • Excerpt: This phone is as close to iphone with out being an iphone. But.. my turns off by itself every once in while. Which is annoying. The only way to turn it back on is to take out the battery and put it back in.

Cool apps

  • Excerpt: While the apps are awesome, the GPS does not work too well and the phone tends to overheat if used too much. The battery dies quickly if you are using the phone but it recharges quickly. I have had to replace it twice already due to corrosion so if you plan to get this phone definately invest in insurance.

It is a really small phone

  • Excerpt: I got the phone for free as an upgrade. The phone is not very user friendly. It took me two days to figure out how to text! The instruction booklet is worthless. The phone I have has a keyboard, but the keys are tiny. I am a creature of habit, so I really don't like new phones, but my kids don't really like the phone. I was encouraged to get the phone because of the mobile hot spot. Can't get this to work either. The internet on the phone is iffy and sometimey at best.

  • Excerpt: At first the palm pre is an amazing phone but after a while it starts freezing a lot and you recieve text messages late. you even have to use just the headphones they give you with the phone otherwise the speakers will get stuck in headset mode and you wont be able to hear anybody when they call you. besides all of that the phone is very handy.

Palm Pre is good, but there are better out there.

  • Excerpt: The Palm Pre is a good phone. But the Iphone (which I dont have) seems to be better! Sprint still has some catching up to do w/this one. So far, I am on my 2nd phone only because it was under the 1 year warranty. The screen protecter changes somehow made my phone disfunction, so now on the latest pre i have, I have no protecter, but i do have a lot of scratches b/c the screen is not durable.

The Palm Pre is a great phone, but has some annoying problems.

  • Excerpt: I purchased the Pre when it was new and in it's early stages on the Sprint network.  This was the first Smart Phone I have ever purchased, so I was eager to learn everything about it and start using all of the "life managing" features the phone was advertised to have. The Benefits and Plesant Features I enjoy how I can multitask with the Pre.  I can be on the phone with someone and texting another friend at the same time, which is always nice.

I love it and hate it at the same time

  • Excerpt: I have never been more frustrated yet found more enjoyment with a phone at the same time.  In theory I love the pre.  Its functions are great and its pretty user friendly, however...it is filled with glitches.  My phone had to be replaced 4 times in 6 months and none of the times being my fault.  The apps aren't that great but the GPS is the best phone GPS I've ever seen.  I do love the key pad on the phone but if you have big fingers its difficult to use.

good product

  • Excerpt: Last year, I was thinking about buying an iphone.  My mom, of course, complained how expensive those apple products.  She gave me a lecture saying how expensive the iphone was. She was able to convince me to not buy the iphone.  Thank god, she lectured me.  I browsed around in best buy, and I played with some smart phones.  I picked up the palm pre for the first time.  Wow, it was a wonderful experience.  I loved how palm pre was designed .

Very disappointed

jln2028, Viewpoints
9 September 2012
  • Excerpt: This was the greatest phone I've ever had... For about 5 minutes. I was so disappointed. The battery life was around 30 seconds. Not really of course. If I talked or eveen checked email it dsrained the battery crazy fast. I had to charge the phone 2 to 3 times a day depending on activity. The phone started locking up at first.  I replaced it. The locking up started again after about a month. Then it would just shut down. This was happening 1 to 5 times every single day.
