    I don't know... I like this droid, but I was testin out my friends pre device and thought it was honestly more cooler and felt like you can make that phone fully customizable 100% to it's user. I'm not gonna lie the droid is pretty cool itself, but maybe not the right phone for me... And I did think the pre was a little faster and smoother. Give me advises people.

    If you liked the Pre better, get the Pre! The Droid isn't for everyone.

    First off, welcome Jessica : )

    My advice is to grab the Pre..you already like it and you stated the Droid is not for you.

    Snatch up the Pre....

    Definitely wait on the Pre Plus. It will be on Verizon, more memory, better hardware, raised the keys, and a few other changes. I don't think I've ever heard someone say that the Pre feels faster than any of the current popular smartphones, but the Pre Plus should help it catch up since it does have the same processor as the iPhone and the Droid.

    ditto what they said on the pre plus, it's better than the regular pre.

    i tried out the pre when it was first released, os was nice but the build quality was lacking. other things like no sd card support, no vid recording, battery life, and concern for what type of support it would see app wise.

    Apparently, the newest version of the Pre OS is about to be released and is going to be a big step in the right direction. I know video recording and editing was one of the new features.

    First off, if you honestly feel like the Sprint Palm Pre is fast at anything, then I'm going to have to assume you're trolling. That phone is slow as molasses, and Palm themselves admitted that they did not utilize the GPU properly. Thee is very little customization at all. You have a total of 4 (count em, 4) customizable icons that you can place on your on homescreen, the rest are accessed via menu, no widgets, etc... I hate when other people use the "T" words in threads like these, but I have to call it like I (think) see it.

    Now, assuming you are not trolling, I would recommend you avoid the Sprint version like the plague. Get the Verizon Pre. That looks to be one bad ass phone. Better optimized firmware, video recording and editing, double the storage, double the ram, better build quality.

    If you like apps, get an Android phone! My coworker has the Pre, I have the Eris. When she sees all the apps I can get, she is so mad!
