    Too bad so sad. Why post on here? You want sympathy? Go buy a palm spend some money and sell the Droid.

    And enjoy a dying operating system with no apps and a cheap build.

    Let me talk to you about the Pre Plus. I currently have one as well as an Envytouch, Envy3, Nokia Twist, BB Storm, Storm II, Tour, Droid and the Eris. (The joys of working for a cell phone company I have 5 lines I upgrade every 10 months WOOT WOOT! Enough gloating)

    Few thing I have recognized about the Pre that you may want to know about before making the switch.

    Apps. So many apps you have to pay for. There are a lot of apps but the amount of free apps on the Droid blows the amount of free apps away on the palm.

    Keyboard. No on screen keyboard. I personally like the qwerty keyboard the pre has but if you have big hands its a pain to type on.

    Performance is about the same as the droid. Screens change about the same rate and battery life is 6's.

    Form: I actually really like the Pre. It feels good next to my face.

    Navigation isn't close to the droid with gps with navigation.

    Browsing: about the same. I like the pinch to zoom in the native browser, however the droid has it with Dolphin, not a big selling point for me.


    Email: about the same. No real differences, Pre you can have 17 email accounts on the device.

    HUGE loss for the Pre. NO VIDEO. You cannot record video on the pre.

    Saving pictures. you can also not save a picture on the web by selecting it. YOu have to zoom in screen shot it and crop it. Huge pain

    Camera is 3.0 vs 5.0

    Ask questions. Let me answer them for you.

    These types of posts make me wonder if they are real. If he wanted a Pre, well, he could just go get one. even if he was "stuck" with a Droid, he can just sell it on eBay, probabyl break even and get a Pre.

    I smell a fake, though. The Droid isn't perfect, but going from a Droid to a Pre....

    So buy a new or even used Pre and sell your Droid to recoup the money. How hard is that??? Problem solved. If you aren't happy now you will be even less happy a year from now. Life is to short to settle. Why come here crying about it. Did you expect sympathy???

    I recall when I got my Droid my brother was like, "well, it's okay, but if you would wait until January Verizon is getting the Pre."

    Well, I couldn't take my phone back because it was a gift from my parents, so I was "stuck" with it. :) And besides, my brother might be a computer genius, but he's one of those stupid 'iPhone' people.

    So I never looked at the Palm Pre. I figured it would be crippled my Verizon anyways, just like they do most of their phones.

    I have a Ferrari I don't like any more, and I'm looking to trade for a Ford Fiesta :icon_ devil:

    This is on topic right? Same idea...
    To the OP, all joking aside, at least you know what phone you want, ultimately you have to enjoy what you have.

    C'mon man

    Have 2 side w/ brian on this; He's not even asking for opinions, just stating how he feels (apparently). Like many have already suggested, just go get a Pre.:reddroid:
