Great Little Phone
Love WebOS. Bought the first Palm Pre from Sprint. Glad to give this phone another run. The cons I have with this phone is I can't find 3G data use for the phone on T-Mobile and setting up services like email, calendar and stuff is easier said than done.
Verified purchase: Yes | Condition: Pre-owned

Great product for the price I bought it
This phone is a Great phone! Really happy with it. I'm using it with Simple mobile, cheapest plans out there dead serious. It is easy to use, and really great. The only things I don't like about the phone is the keyboard, it's annoying typing in it since the keys are so small, I'd prefer an on screen keyboard. Also, if you plan to buy it thinking of using it to use apps with it, THIS IS NOT YOUR PHONE... it doesn't come with Google Play, or Android store, or iTunes, it comes with some HP store that has NO apps literally... I mean, it has facebook but that's it. No games, no Talkatone for free calls if you have wifi, nothing. I only bought it because its cheap, I like a smartphone to browse the web, the camera, its compatible, and to make calls. I'm using Simple Mobile with it, I'm paying $20 a month for unlimited text and calls, plus I don't know how it happened, but I get free 3g too... not complaining... with my wifi I get internet, and when I'm out, I get free 3g too, I browse the web whenever I want pretty much with free calls and text for just $20 a month! great company Simple Mobile is ^.^ and great phone! 16gb good enough for my music too.

A phone almost up with the big boys, allowing WebOS to shine.
A worthy successor to the Pre/Pre+ phones. The form factor is nearly identical, if not perfectly so. This can be a great or bad thing, depending upon what you're looking for in handfeel and what size device you're used to. The curved and rather large back I find to be incredibly comfortable and natural to hold. The device is somewhat weighty, which lends it a better feel in hand than a similarly sized device would have if it were much lighter. The screen is a marked improvement over the kit on the Pixi/Veer as it is higher resolution and I find it to have excellent viewing angles and color reproduction, especially in the black tones, for an LCD. The keyboard is decent, though not as slick as the Pixi+ keyboard. I find that with the size of my hands, the top row of keys are very hard to hit at times due to being too close to the bottom part of the screen slider. WebOS 2.x is pretty nice overall, though some of the more aesthetic tweaks from PreWare that I grew to love on my Pixi+ are no longer possible. However, PreWare+Govnah+Uberkernel delivers a device that is set to melt faces with speed. Flash is included in the browser and works fairly well. The device is so much more snappy than the Pixi+ it isn't even funny. Finally, you can take advantage of the excellence that is the WebOS multitasking paradigm. The back cover can be fiddly to get off, but can be replaced easily to give you access to extended batteries if you so desire. The Pre2 works great on my Pixi+ touchstone with no hassle what-so-ever. Exhibition mode is a nice additon to the WebOS platform, something sorely missing in WebOS 1.4.x devices. I can't speak to call quality or phone functions at all as I used it only as a WiFi toy, but it worked excellent in that capacity. Read full review

Average phone with battery, stability and built quality issues.
I am using the Pre 2 about 2 months. The mobile phone I had before was an LG P500 Android 2.2 device (I was 100% satisfied by it, simple-cheap-stable).Here are my thoughts about Palm Pre 2: - Why you bought it:I would like to taste first handed the webos operating system. I realized that the phone is listed as average, and comparing to my ex Android device, it had + and -. - What you like most about it: Webos, small size, strong processor, visible screen (gorilla). - What you dislike about it: Battery life is a misery, with simple use (20 calls per day)it can reach 20 hours max. Another issue, more important, is the instability of the device. I do not know if it is a matter of webos or the hardware. At least 1 time per day the phone reboots without any reason (it shuts down, showing "HP" and restarts). Finally, construction quality is questionable, with sliding parts sometimes moving to much. - Whether or not you would buy the product again: Certainly not. I think that my next mobile would be a Blackberry. - Compare it with Android: Android 2.2 LG P500 device was more stable, it had a better and reacher application catalogue, better battery life and certainly was far more stable.

No It Is NOT Android or iOS - It's Better
Some reviewers seem to be confused either about which phone they posted a review to (g2???) or what they were purchasing (no virtual keyboard = no input [seems that user never discovered the phone has a slide-out physical keyboard?!?!?], can't have multiple email accounts active???). The Pre 2 is a webOS phone, the last fully supported model from Palm/HP. My Pre 2 runs great. Look into the community, they will help you tweak and customize your phone to suit exactly how you want the device to run. It is way easier to mod this phone than any Android or iPhone. I love the Operating System so much I went out and got another model as well because webOS is powerful and intuitive and oh so very easy to work with. You can have multiple email accounts... You can have a virtual keyboard if you want (with some tweaks), but why burden the OS with a virtual keyboard if the slide out portrait physical keyboard works so well? I've owned Android phones, I've looked at and poked at iOS, I've used some great feature phones... webOS beats them all hands down by combining multitasking and can-do into a User Interface that is deceptively simple and easy to master, yet provides a rich hands-on experience that has you accomplishing more with your phone in less time and with a more forgiving learning curve. Accessories for this phone are easily found on the web. Open Source webOS is on track to release this fall (2012). The community is very much alive, intact , helpful and innovative. This is in no way a dead-end device. For the money it offers a great value and there is no reason not to look hard at this phone. If my Pre 2 were to stop working for some reason: I would absolutely get another as quickly as I could. BTW - complaints about battery life are common to ANY smart phone. I've found it very easy to tweak settings on this phone to maximize battery life. One of the great things about webOS is that when you close something (by simply flicking it off the screen!) it is closed... Not hanging out in the background sucking up battery like on some other devices. I would say that any poor reviews are due to either not understanding what was being purchased or not taking the (short amount of) time to understand how to work with the device to accomplish your goals. There is nothing I've asked a webOS phone to do that it has failed to do... Read full review
