Software is great but the hardware is lacking

Palm Pre 2

from Tracy and Matt (3 years ago)

It definitely is a good iteration on the original but I still don't think that it has enough to stay competitive in the 2011 smartphone market. Consumers generally think that good quality hardware = good product, and if Palm/HP continues to produce phones that are lacking in the hardware department,... More

It would only appeal to current Palm users looking for an upgrade to their webOS experience

Palm Pre 2

from PhoneArena (3 years ago)

Overall, there is a lot to like about the Palm Pre 2. We like its overall shape, though its design is a bit dated now, but it’s easy to hold and feels comfortable in the hand. The improved webOS 2.0 software and 1GHz processor makes the Pre 2 feel faster and more powerful than the Pre Plus. Bu... More

It's fun, but far from cutting edge

Palm Pre 2

from PC Magazine (3 years ago)

After several months of delays, HP's Palm Pre 2 is finally available on Verizon. Like the first version, the svelte Palm Pre 2 is a finely crafted smartphone with a beautiful operating system. But the Pre 2 suffers from a thin app catalog, a cramped design, and last year's hardware. It compares poor... More

A very capable smartphone, but it's worth waiting for the HP Pre 3, which will offer hardware improvements to complement the software upgrade

Palm Pre 2

from Cnet (3 years ago)

First off, it's been a while since we've had a WebOS device in for review, so it was really great to have one back in our hands. It reminded us how much we love the mobile operating system for its multitasking abilities, data management, and search functionality, and the new enhancements only make i... More

This is one phone that put us on spin cycle despite its flaws

Palm Pre 2

from InfoSync (3 years ago)

The Palm Pre 2 is a hidden gem of a phone buried beneath thick igneous rock layers of Android interfaces. The Pre 2's WebOS 2.0 integration and 1GHz OMAP processor are its main entrees, and those features boosted an already great phone even higher to the smartphone gods. We loved Palm's interface&md...

A combination of cute good looks with powerful smarts and a uniquely different OS

Palm Pre 2

from Wired (3 years ago)

Hats off to Palm for carving a place for itself in the crowded smart phone market, with its brace of handsets that manage to combine cute good looks with powerful smarts and a uniquely different OS. This latest version of the QWERTY-packing Pre series raises the bar again with its beefed up processo... More

It manages to deliver a mostly-complete experience with an excellent balance of style and function

Palm Pre 2

from IntoMobile (3 years ago)

On the whole, I’m still really impressed with webOS, and the Pre 2 seems to answer most of people’s concerns about Palm’s hardware. You aren’t ever going to see app selection on par with Android, what with multiple hardware manufacturers pushing the platform, but with HP behi... More

It’s a welcome and worthy successor but not a crucial update for current owners

Palm Pre 2

from Phonedog (3 years ago)

I know a lot of you would want to wait for different hardware to even consider a webOS device and I don’t blame you.  I’d love to see a slim, large screened webOS phone as well but the Pre 2 does an excellent job for what it is.  Looking at webOS, I occasionally feel like it is... More

Top usability, but poor battery life and not enough apps

Palm Pre 2

from PC Pro (3 years ago)

The Pre 2 is a pleasant phone to use, don't get us wrong, but it needs to do more than that in the cut throat smartphone world.Palm's selection of apps remains paltry next to the rest, and the hardware is slowly being left behind - perhaps that's why it's yet to be picked up by any of the networks....

Instability and a lack of applications makes Palm Pre 2 a let down

Palm Pre 2

from PhoneArena (3 years ago)

We like the Palm Pre 2 a lot, and while we aren't convinced it's going to be a market hit, would very much like it to be. It is a well sized, ergonomic handset with a great UI and an incredibly intuitive phonebook experience thanks to the Just Type functionality. It also offers enough fun t... More

Not worth the money or time

Palm Pre

(2 years ago)

Both my wife and I got this about two years ago, thank goodness that we got the warranty because my wife has had to send hers in three or four times and I have had to send mine in twice, for screen issues, button issues, and both for just randomly deciding to not work in any way shape or form. Right... More

Not the best phone

Palm Pre

(3 years ago)

I got this phone because i liked the look of it, and it worked great for a while. Then suddenly after 5 months, it kept freezing, then the phone went "offline" and would not start back up. I read that a lot of people are having this problem, and the only solution is for the company to give you a new... More

from Phonedog (3 years ago)

Using experience: 2 years The phone goes offline for no reason, shuts off, deletes contacts, freezes, and simply DOES NOT WORK. NEVER get the palm pre. STAY AWAY.

I'm not very pleased

Palm Pre

(3 years ago)

I am very disappointed with the Palm Pre and the service I've got. This phone is not compatible with alot of apps .I don't know why Bell would sell a phone that isn't even compatible with Bell mobility to get Ringtones off of or some other apps. When I went to change this phone for an I-Phone 4 I wa... More

Palm Pre deserves Naplam

Palm Pre

(3 years ago)

I tried this phone for 7 months. Phone locked up and froze constantly. Every reboot one must endure a 5 minute boot up. As it has been in repairs 3 times, now it resides in the bottom of a sock drawer. Dropped phone on carpet, and screen shattered. Phone returns from repairs with something else wron... More

An idea still unrivaled by other smart phones a year later

Palm Pre

(3 years ago)

The Palm Pre was launched to early with an OS that required a complete about face for users accustomed to plugging their phones in to sync with a computer. 6 months after its release and 5 OS updates later, the phone is now the most underated smart phone on the market. The contact management syste... More

For Centro owners thinking of upgrading

Palm Pixi

from Amazon (4 years ago)

Overall, I'm delighted with the Pixi. I was a Centro user and while researching, found that very few reviews focussed on the issues a Centro user might face beyond data transfer. So here goes: Pluses Ability to see multiple Calendars (iPhone friends drool at this one) and all your Contacts. Abi... More

Hate This *!#@&! Phone

Palm Pixi

from Amazon (4 years ago)

In case you couldn't tell by the title, this phone is not my friend. I *hate* it. I had a Palm for two years before this and *loved* it, so I thought this would be an easy transition. Not so. Pro: I love how it syncs with Google Calendar and Contacts. It's nice to be able to update either of t... More

Pros: good keyboard; very nice display; webOS is incredible; nice apps; push email excellent; browsing great; multitasking fun; touchstone charger is GREAT idea; very responsive touch... More
