As much as I love my Palm Pre Plus, there is always room for improvement. I thought I would go over some of the things I dislike about the phone. Nothing is so bad that it would be a deal-breaker for me, just little annoyances.
1. No send button on the phone keyboard. Most phones have a little green phone button for making a call, and a little red phone for ending a call. The Palm Pre Plus has neither of these on the keyboard. Instead, you must use the touch screen to make or end a call.
2. The keyboard is a little small. While I love the option of having both a touchscreen and full keyboard, the keys are itty-bitty. Not too much that I can't use them, but I tend to find I'm using my nails to press the keys. I think some men may have a problem using the small keyboard.
3. Short battery life. Like most 3G phones, the battery life on the Palm Pre Plus is minimal. I really notice it when I use apps like twitter or facebook. Pandora radio is also a big-time battery sucker. I have to charge my phone every night, and if I forget, my phone is dead by the next day.
4. Can only delete one email at a time, and have to open email to do so. This is just a little pet peeve, but even when I know an email is spam, I have to open it up before I can delete it.
Like I said, these are just minor details and in the grand scheme, the Palm Pre Plus is pretty awesome. I've never had a phone I've liked so much and found so easy to use.
I received a new Palm Pre Plus Smartphone and 1 month’s service and data plan for participating in the program through Verizon. All opinions are my own and I am not being compensated in any other way.
