Is the build quality of the HP Pre 3 better then the Palm Pre 2? My (pre 2) sliding is really rickety and the unlock button does not work sometimes.

Can't compare to the Pre 2, but it's much better than the original Pre. Much more solid feel (the Pre- would sometimes reboot when opening the slider!). I've never had a problem with the unlock button.

I have both here on my desk. The Pre 3 feels a lot slicker, and has a lot nicer feel to it in general. Also it's shape is a bit more modern. In general I would say the Pre 3 feels a lot more expensive and steady compared to the Pre 2.

I dropped mine several times already, induced a few dents and scratches, but phone works fine. I didn't even create oreos like my Pre did after just one small drop.

Enough said.

I agree, having had a Pre+, Pre 2 and Pixi+, the Pre 3 is leaps and bounds better. Getting the back off is my only complaint, thankfully I don't have to do it often.

The pre 3 is built as a phone should be, I have dropped it many times, it keeps on ticking ,

I have two I'm buying a third as a back up, I will be happy with this phone for years I think

The Veer is great phone too. Build quality is similar, just smaller. Been using mine for over a year and still very happy with it :-)
