My 2 cents is on the pre3 for daily phone use. Its really noticeably faster than the pre2. Has a better camera and much better screen res. Everyone likes something a little different but to me the pre3 is a big update from a pre2. Even the veer feels faster to use imho than the pre2. Problem with the veer is the lack of screen real estate. Really painful browsing on a veer. No flash on the veer camera sucks too because its used all the time as a flashlight. Hope this helps...
