Palm Pre 2 review

 

Palm's next gen Pre 2 feels more like a stopgap than revolutionary successor

Palm Pre 2 review

 

It doesn't look much different to what's come before, so is the Pre 2 more than just Pre Plus Plus?

One of the best OS concepts around ; Build quality ; Generally quite snappy ; Decent camera ; Good keyboard

Feels like minor update ; No improvement to screen ; Some bugginess ; Battery life ; Not subsidised

The Palm Pre 2's history starts, unsurprisingly, with the original Palm Pre. When it launched, many had high hopes for it to be the device that rivalled the iPhone for slickness and ease of use.

Palm Pre 2 - Pocket-lint

 

Overall, this is a nice, slick little smartphone that performs well, and offers a number of unique features (such as gesture control and Synergy) that

webOS 2.0 brings with it some nice new features and there are better multitasking capabilities due to the 1GHz CPU

Build quality isn't great, and it's basically a rehash of the Palm Pre Plus

The Palm Pre 2 is a decent little smartphone which sticks to the trusted formula of previous models and adds some nice touches. However, it is hard to forge a new opinion on what is basically a re-hashed version of what we've seen before.

The best Pre yet, but is this touchscreen slider phone worth investing in?

Palm Pre 2

 

The 3.1in, 320x480 pixel screen isn't an ideal size or resolution for web browsing, which is best enjoyed in landscape orientation. Adobe Flash 10.1 is supported, but embedded video playback stuttered terribly, even over Wi-Fi, and was unwatchable at...

The Plus’s woefully substandard 3MP snapper has been hiked to 5MP, but it's still alarmingly bereft of settings and modes. The LED flash is a hit-and-miss affair: it only shoots VGA video and, although the fixed focus optics take surprisingly sharp...

Palm Pre 2 review

 

After a false start from Palm, is the Pre 2 the iPhone killer we were always promised?

A brilliantly integrated, user-friendly OS is let down by average hardware design and fledgling App Catalog

Palm Pre 2

 

The Palm Pre 2 offers a 1Ghz processor, 5-megapixel camera, glass screen and a 'sleeker, streamlined design' with a slide-out Qwerty for when the touchscreen just won't do

Palm Pre 2 review -

 

An innovative UI, speedy processor, pinpoint accurate A-GPS and both an excellently responsive touch-screen and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard

The lack of apps including some core omissions (no native Twitter client) may deter some from swapping their Android and iPhone devices

Palm Pre 2

 

The philosopher's phone

With webOS 2.0 as its strong point, the Palm Pre 2 is packed full of neat touches and rivals iOS in terms of sheer sophistication, but a sparse app store leaves it trailing when it comes to games

Palm Pre 2 Review by 3G.co.uk

 

Palm has done a good job with this smart-looking device

Some major things missing(such as a native Twitter client) and a dearth of apps may deter iPhone or Androidusers from swapping their existing phones

Palm has done agood job with this smart-looking device, with plenty of features. It’s just ashame there are so few apps on offer.
