Great Idea, poor performance. I wouldn't buy it again. Sorry Palm :
This product, the successor of the Palm Pre that was launched in 2009, was my dream phone back in 2009 for some reasons: 1. Open operating system (WebOS) - supposed to be easy to modify or develop apps . 2. Great synchronization with many built-in apps (which is unfortunate) such as Facebook, Skype and Google by contacts, calendar and mail. 3. Great design - One of the most beautiful smartphone I have ever encountered with. I did'nt buy the original palm pre back in 2009 because I was too young and didn't have the budget for it. As the years gone by, and the phone kept being upgraded and changed hands (HP bought Palm's WebOS device line and the operating system itself) and the prices went low, I decided to fulfill my dream and buy a Pre device. After use of 2 months with the phone I have come a bit wiser about buying phones these days and have formed a judgment about this phone: 1)The operating system is almost as good as I expected it - great synchronization with the built-in apps but not with outside apps and it is very hard to merge them into the system despite the face that it is an open operating system. 2)The design didn't change a lost since the first Palm Pre (the physical button was converted to a capacitive button) and the keyboard was perfected a little bit more. But most of all, I'm disappointed from this device because of 2 main reasons: 1)I found out that saying "we have an open operating system" means that "we don't want to continue working on this piece and we won't do anything to help you overcome some difficulties you encounter, but we hope you will have fun wasting your money on us :)" 2)A company that keeps on changing hands so much (now LG bought the WebOS division from HP to their SamrtTV collection) can't be any good and is not very recommended for the everyday consumer. This product is a good example of great idea to compete against iOS, Android, Windows phone and Blackberry but with poor will power which ended up wasting money on products from both sides of the system (The provider's and the consumer's money).

Incredible, industry-leading OS which is being allowed to go to seed.
I bought this phone despite it already having been slated to be discontinued by HP, since I had a previous model, the Palm Pre+, which remained a more intuitive phone to use than all it's higher-profile competitors. My impression of the Pre3 was a mixed bag. On the one hand, build is possibly of better quality, the keys are sharper and the keyboard snappier to open and shut. The screen is larger, brighter, and web pages more visible. The phone is easier to hold, and the charging slot has thankfully lost its finicky cover. The OS is as fabulous as it has always been. Phone reception quality is very good. But it has not been improved. In fact, it is very hard to see where any effort has been put in by HP over the past couple of years. It feels as thought he same system was transplanted into a bigger or more powerful phone. There is no sense of discovery of a new product, and previous limitations eg the poor battery life, the lack of on-screen keyboard, the lack of memory expansion, the minimal app store, the poor choice of system sounds, and a certain degree of rigidity in the system that does not allow for personalisation are not offset by new features. Furthermore, certain features that were really bothersome persist eg I can not buy any of the (few) apps since I am from Malta and the phone is irritatingly claustrophobic in that way (the rigidity I referred to); the new maps (Bing) is woefully inadequate in Malta, although it may be excellent in larger countries. The screen seems to have as much "lag" as its previous incarnations. The intuitiveness and the oft-referred-to multitasking capabilities of this phone's OS continue to impress every time I use a friend's phone, although other new high-end phones are starting to feel fresher, more powerful, more multi-media competent and more in line with the current uses being demanded of a phone.

greatest phone I've ever used
I loved the webos since HP's debut their two phone (pre3 and veer) in 2011. First I've used a veer and loved that. Now Pre3 Web os is my preferred mobile OS, Also the device which carries the OS have a most powerful product quality (like in iPhones) from outer design to the cable that we use for charging. Also I believe these days major mobile os companies (mostly 2) trying to control the lives of the mobile users. Like Microsoft has done in 90's - early-present. In which case I prefer webos is a free soul (also its now open webos) However the problem here is in end of this year HP gonna stop all there support for WEBOS, including the webos profile sync. we call it webos doomsday. However If you are a webos enthusiast like me, there's a team called webos-internals.org A community full of Webos fans who are trying to keep webos live. Hail web-os... Read full review

great pre3 !!
!!!great phone !!! Great WEBOS !!! Great ideas but it's a pity that everything has finished ... If you need a cheap smart phone this one is the best in the market 1.4 Mhz processor !!! And 512 mhz on RAM , 5 megapixes camera forr around £100 to £130 !!! It,s good however the cables are very very fuzzy I have some problems when I plug the charger so the option is to get a touchtone !!

Great OS. But support unlikely to continue in the future.
Good phone. Web OS is still the best mobile os and this latest version of it is much improved. Received an OTA update to the os just 2 weeks ago but don't know how long this will continue for given HP slowly dismantling its support for web OS and not making any more phones. If this doesn't put you off highly recommended.
