Palm Pre Plus review


Does the Pre Plus do enough to justify a re-release?

Great OS ; Improved keyboard ; More RAM ; Better memory ; Enjoyable gesture bar

Not a lot of improvement in two years ; Sharp rim ; No Facebook chat ; Hard to reach power button ; No turn-by-turn navigation

One year ago, the world was awaiting the arrival of the first Palm Pre, like a foretold saviour from the boredom of smartphone monotony. This would be the handset to truly grasp the 'iPhone killer' title and run with it, but that plan didn't quite come...

Build quality, battery life, sluggish performance

There are four main problems with the Palm Pre Plus, and to us they are all major disadvantages.

Has Palm tackled the problems of the much-vaunted Palm Pre in this update?

Palm Pre Plus review


Even so, the subtle hardware tweaks make it an overall improvement from its predecessor the Palm Pre. Some quirks remain, however, with the keyboard design and the sluggishness of the software.

If you're looking for a smaller and less expensive alternative to the Motorola Droid you will be pleased with the Palm Pre Plus. The hardware improvements and future software upgrades should boost its appeal - especially among the latest crop of...

Palm Pre Plus


The update to Palm's much-lauded Pre handset has been a long time coming, but at last the Palm Pre Plus is here. But with the smartphone landscape greatly changed over the past six months, the Pre Plus has a lot to do to prove itself a worthy contender

Intuitive OS, syncs Facebook and email contacts and calendars, fast web browser

Sparse app store, dated design, sharp edged keyboard

Palm Pre Plus Review by


The Palm Pre Plus is a good phone, but doesn't really have a place

The OS is intuitive, Synergy is an effective way to sync your contacts,calendar and messages, and the web browser is super speedy

The design is outmoded, the keyboard has nasty sharp edges and the apps storeis understocked

The Palm Pre Plus is a good phone, but doesn’t really have a place next to thecurrent batch of superphones.

Palm Pre Plus review


A decent smartphone with double the memory of the original Pre

Decent compact touch screen; great multi-tasking; double the memory and storage capacity of the first Pre

Lack of apps; no auto-correction while typing; no hotspot application

The Palm Pre Plus isn't wildly different to the original Pre, and is more of a service pack release. Not much has changed other than the doubled memory size for storage and running applications. Holding back the webOS operating system is a lack of...

Extra memory only real change from original Pre

Decent compact touch screen smartphone, great multitasking ability, double the memory and storage capacity of the first Pre

Lack of applications, missing auto-correction while typing, missing hotspot USA application
