    Because when your phone is on a 2G (1xRTT) connection your battery life all of a sudden goes to hell? No.

    yeah i was wondering that myself, since wimax is kinda weak at the moment,It must try hard to search for a signal. I hope he reports back if that is the issue.

    It happens mainly when something else within the app is still loading or WebOS hasn't "caught up".

    I have a Droid Eris AND a Pre - my android IS slow!! I love both phones, but the Android freezes a lot

    I don't have to tap on anything 2 or 3 times for it to register, mine works perfectly fine first tab around. If you happen to try to open something just when an email or a text message comes in, then it might slow noticeably.

    We'll know more when the Supersonic comes out.

    wooooooooaaaaaaaaaahhhhh.....slow down guys. No need to bash. I LOVE webOS,and the pre. If Palm came out with the same screen size and specs, I would be drooling over that instead. The point is the Supersonic is sexy and I can't wait to get it. If Palm steps up thier game and releases something similar I would have no problem switching to that.

    Make sure you compare where webOS is at, at the time you switch to the supersonic and not where webOS was.......DEAL

    Tired of hearing comparisons of new versions of other platforms OS's (android/apple,ect) versus what webOS was 6mos ago, atleast take the latest and greatest and not the oldest and buggyest.

    I love the Pre, but the Supersonic is damn sexy and has nice specs. That doesn't mean it will perform well. I might consider getting one once it's been out for a month or two.

    Wow, June is only three months away. I am guessing at this point I will end up going past the year mark with my Pre so I am in no hurry to get the Supersonic. Also I am not in a 4G area, though I would travel to some once in a while. Still, sounds like a kickbutt phone.

    hopefully dan hesse slips up and says the supersonic is the first 4g phone to be released in the summer.

    Hello,

    I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the right area but I didn't want to start an entire new thread for just this.

    Here's the deal:

    I got a Pre in November 09 and I absolutely love it, then about 3 weeks ago the touch feature went all crazy and would only let me use touch if it was plugged in to charge. So I took it to Sprint and they ordered me another one.

    The one they gave me worked fine until I did the 1.4 update. After the update was installed I was only able to hear calls if I had the caller on speakerphone. I couldn't even hear the phone ring! So then I took that back to Sprint and they gave me another one.

    So I picked up my new one on Friday and again it worked fine...until I did the 1.4 update. Now everything works okay but my battery life is almost non exisistant. I MAYBE get 5 hours of battery life from the time I take if off the charger until the time it is completely dead. I've done all the "tips and tricks" like turning off GPS and WiFi, setting my email retrieval to manual, putting the screen on a dim percentage of 30% and turn off after 30 seconds of idle, and I'm only connecting to the Spring network.

    I'm not sure what else I can do. the previous two Pre's I had always lasted me the entire day...I don't surf the web that much I don't use my gps..I basically just use text and phone and the ocassional facebook app.

    If I can't resolve this pretty soon, I think I'm just going to have to switch phones which I would hate because I love the Pre so much...I just can't catch a break though no matter how many new ones they give me! Anyone have any suggestions? (sorry that took so long to write out!)

    If I want a BEAST i'll get a laptop.. Lol. Plus with so many different versions of android and hardware, have fun using software written for the lowest common denominator.

    Sorry, I don't need to watch anything, I tested Droid many times. Owned Hero for a month. Browser on the android platform is not up there with WebOS. Period.

    If it had a smaller screen, i'd get it.

    I would rather have a fantastic web browser than apps anyday. Most apps just get info from the web, they are middle-men.

    beginning to hate palm. i am currently waiting for my 4th-FOURTH! pre. all 3 have had manufacturer defects, the last one fell apart. i think they forgot to put two of the screws in to hold it together. two screws fwell out and it split in half. unbelievable. the phone is built like total crap. i have loved it but for the 4 months i have had my contract, ive gone 6 weeks without the ******* phone. been waiting two weeks for a replacement from palm....piece of sh#t company and phone. before this i had no experience with palm. its not going well. before this last one fell apart i had even started learning html so i could one day develop apps for it. sad. as soon as i have a credit on my acct for a new phone im bailing as of this point. well, maybe if the next one lasts for more than a month i will consider sticking around...
