    Yeah I wouldn't doubt about 95 percent of people on a palm pre forum would agree with you on that one... But tell me why you like it more? I'll tell you basically why I don't... Battery life, bugs, app store, slowness of operating system (at times), construction, lack of support/ adaptability to other programs/ platforms (ie, google chat instead of msn, aim?, facebook sycing adding all your friends to your contacts and slowing down your phone, lack of .mp4 support for videos.. etc..

    Try a BB then. Enjoy the mail servers crashing once a week. Enjoy their slow loading browser. Or perhaps their lack of apps. Don't forget the memory drain every day, which forces you to do a battery pull just about every day. oh yea, don't leave an app open, it will drain your battery and memory. Then there is the buggy OS. Can't really make any tweaks. Yea, you go ahead and go for that BB. Nice brick you will be carrying.

    It's ok to not like the Pre, but to say we're all in denial is just ridiculous. You obviously can't handle a smart phone, sorry. 12 year old kids are able to handle it, but you can't? Stick with dumbphones and you won't be let down.

    We all have Pres because we like them. It's a great device. Does it have some issues? Yea. The hardware could be a bit better too. But overall, I love it and so do most people here.

    I know you think your opinion is the only one that matters. I would hate to live life as you.

    The above is all based on your other thread that got closed.
    I can handle a smartphone buddy. It would be nice to handle a better one than the pre but oh well, like I said I'll wait for my hardware upgrade. I'm not saying my opinion is the only that matters but me saying the phone sucks as bad as it does is just as bad as you saying its awesome. The difference is I'm on a palm board and obviously this is a forum for lovers of the pre. I guess yeah calling it the worst smartphone ever was maybe a tad too much (mainly just to garner responses) but I still stand by everything I say that is wrong with the pre. I mean I want to like it more than I do but until something amazing comes out in the next updates this phone will always be a second rate wanna be iPhone that can multitask.

    I'll bite. Let me go through your complaints and how they effect me.
    Battery life: I get about 12 hours of moderate to heavy use.
    Bugs: I honestly have have little to no problems with any bugs.
    App Store: I'll agree with you on this. We could definitely use some more decent, useful apps.
    Slowness of OS: It takes me at most 2 seconds to open any app (besides 3D games and Epocrates). Menus, transitions, everything is quite snappy and responsive.
    Construction: I would like it if the device felt more sturdy. However, I have no issues with my Pre; it does feel the tiniest bit loose I guess...
    Facebook Sync: it wuld be much beter if you could delete individual entries.
    MP4: Doesn't the Pre support .mp4?

I mean explain some key points, point out some things that make it better etc.. I mean from what I have experienced with the whole Palm fiasco, it would have been a lot easier to get an iPhone.
    Multi-tasking, non-closed ecosystem, form factor, homebrew (from apps to themes to patches, easily put onto the phone), openness of apps (multiple ways for devs to get apps to you), syncing, the card system, physical keyboard, it's on multiple carriers, how productive I can be with it when I need to be. It's the phone for me for right now, hands down.

    You don't like it, move on.

    My experience with mp4 didn't work at all and considering the video camera out puts clips in mp4 i don't know why it didn't work

    We get to listen for 2.5 more years of his whining. I will sell you my BB Storm for $100. Then you will have a phone you will hate even more. I'm more than willing to make your life more miserable.

    If I ever want to show my phone off to an iphone user, all I have to do is take off the back cover. Replaceable battery ftw!

    homebrew apps scare me. I don't like messing around with my phone, inputting patches etc.. I have known people to have bad experiences with their phones doing stuff like that so yeah maybe I'm a ***** for not doing so but in my opinion you shouldn't have to do that kind of stuff to make a phone awesome. I think it should already be awesome and you can choose to do that to make it awesomer.

    Name one phone you don't have to tweak to make better? Don't say iPhone, because you have to jailbreak it to make it a useable smart phone. Don't say BB, because you can't really tweak a turd. Android phones? Nope, you have to root them to make them better. Again name one phone.

    thats awesome dude I really wish I loved the pre as much as everyone else on here. I mean its not THAT bad of a phone but its just not what I was expecting/ wanting and with all the stuff I've gone through (on my second pre, soon to be 3rd) you people should understand at least a bit in why I don't like it.

    Trolling aside, just start messing around with your pre. Install patches, use homebrew apps. You can always use doctor (program that resets your phone) if you mess things up. It is very very hard to brick the phone.

    You hate the phone anyway, why not start messing with it.

    and the 800MHz patch, wow... if you don't think that is awesome after you use it...
