    I would happily put up with any issue in this thread - if they would just fix the battery life issue.

    There is no battery life issue (at least not anymore after the camera patch).
    Battery might not last as long as you want, but that is to be expected from a device with twice the memory as 650 and only a 1200mAh battery.

    I hate the 3 - 4 second lag for no reason sometimes. I have nothing loaded on my phone at the moment just testing it and it STILL does it in the phone app.

    I have this problem too. What i do is remove the sim card and re-insert. It seems too help until the problem starts again a few days later. so you will then have to remove the sim card again

    no lag on my phone. I have a unlocked version from palm. I have lots of apps loaded like chatter email, tcpmp, stockbroker, xweather, google maps, directory assistant, resco explorer, uninstall manager and a few more. I think your issues may be caused by the orange tweaks

    I'd say there remains a battery life issue. Post camera update I still don't get anywhere near the posted 4 hours of talk time or 300 hours of standby time. Also, there's still alot of folks talking about battery life / lack of if the problem is resolved.

    Ditto, I've never seen a lag either ?

    There must be a common casue for other's lag, I'm on an unlocked GSM too.
    Thought of the day :
    No sense being pessimistic, it probably wouldn't work anyway

    Well the users of the Treo 700p; we have the lag all the time. I am thinking of getting the 755p. (Hope the lag issue is fixed!)

    Yeah, that battery life is a joke. More like 18 hours here, if lucky.

    Just to "add" my comments to those already posted :

    1. Favorites buttons - less useful than before --> Much more time consuming than before. At the very least, split the buttons in two, and make it two columns !!

    2. Contacts - is HORRIBLE !.....
    a) The scrolling is MUCH SLOWER (hold the "down" button in the 650 and watch it SCROLL...... hold the "down" button in the 680 and watch it JUMP pages)
    b) why couldn't they allow for FULL SCREEN view of the contacts? (eliminating the bottom menu bar)
    c) why on earth is the "Category" selection now in the main screen, at the very least put it on the top menu bar (there is so much wasted space) just like in the 650 !

    3. "Main" screen is useless, non functional - I hope someone makes a program where this actually gets more functionality

    4. Screen - I find it more yellow, and less bright than my treo 650

    5. "Hang up call" button on screen - this was useful for those of us who locked the screen on a call (to prevent, our face from inadvertendly hitting something on the screen)...so when we wanted to end a call - we hit the center button. (not a big deal)

    6. Text Input - why is it S-L-O-W-E-R ?

    --> It seems to me, honestly, if Palm just added more memory to the 650 and removed the Antenna - they would have come up with a Treo much better than the 680.

    --> As far as the 680 is concerned, I think it is a "decent" device. Just complaining about why would a company engineer-out functionality of a device? It makes no sense.

    1 the 680's Phone app stinks - much less user-friendly than the 650's. A major problem with this smartphone. Lots of well-targeted reasons are listed in the comments to this review:
    http://blog.treonauts.com/2006/11/tr..._review_1.html

    2 my 680 often freezes when I receive a call.

    Other than that, it's great.

    Maybe even something like:

    Battery (drain, poor reporting, inaccurate meter): 10 people
    Bluetooth compat problems (see msg ###): 3 people
    Keyboard flickering: 3 people
    I second the BT problems.

    heckj,
    you mention you don't have the lag... I'm on a cingular locked 680
    I bought my the day in came out in NY - 11/22/06.
    No matter what app I'm using there is a 3-4 sec. time frame where the phone freezes. This happens about every minute or some.
    This even happens when the antenna is off.
    I installed battery.prc to check this out and something is definitely going on because the battery meter constantly spikes between under 10mA to around 200mA's constantly.
    I've tested this with current apps, then after hard reset, and then after hard reset with camera patch provided by palm.

    If anyone has any suggestions, it would be much appreciated.

    Thanks

    A lot of folks, including me, have had good luck getting rid of the lag by going into Prefs>Date & Time and setting "Automatically set" to "Nothing." Make sure you then manually set to the right time zone and the right time. This will keep your Treo from going out to check the time automatically, and should stop the lag problem.
