Summary: It is a very VERY competent PDA, as expected from Palm, the king of PDAs. The OS is slick and useful and in some places is ahead of both iOS and Android. But Don't get too excited. WebOS is pretty much dead and although there is a tiny tiny flicker of hope for revival since it keeps being bought and revived by different companies don't expect this model to ever get another major update.
Summary: I love the Palm Pre Plus. This is the third one I've owned. The power button goes out after almost a years use but the phone is still completely usable. I dropped the first one several times and was pretty rough on it but it still lasted me two years. The second one I had is still in great working condition but I am switching carriers and had to get a new phone to do so, I chose to stick with the pre plus.
Summary: I still think that WebOS is awesome and that the Pre is a great device. 2 things keep it from getting 5 stars: no 4G and some Apps are no longer supported (screw you DirecTV for taking away support for the Sunday Ticket app). But honestly, I don't use my mobile device for launching missiles, I just want something I can use Facebook, check email, buy airline tickets, check headlines, watch the occasional video and make phone calls.
Excerpt: Love the phone..but sometimes I just have some problems running updates. I had to get a new phone because my old Palm Pre shut off randomly and overheated. Besides that I love the phone and would definitely recommend it.
