    How the hell is the instinct on there?

    I HAD the instinct. That thing SUCKED. And I used the new one in the store for a good 10 minutes. Nothing changed besides the look.

    Pre > Instinct. All day.
    Palm Pre | WebOS | Sprint

    This site (CNET) was usable MAYBE 15 years ago... but is about as reliable to electronics news now-a-days as Paris Hilton is to election coverage. The last time they said anything worthwhile - Milli Vanilli was on top of the charts.

    If the Samsung Instinct HD is anything like the Samsung Instinct, cnet just lost all credibility with me because the Instinct was a HUGE letdown and very poor phone to boot. The only way it is better then the Pre is HD video recording but in every other way there is no comparison whatsoever. I'm pretty sure the Instinct HD is significantly more expensive then the Pre also. I suffered through two years of the Instinct and would choose a free-on-contract dumbphone before I would use another Instinct

    The day I got the Pre was a awesome day. The Pre was really nice and everything but I didn't have to use the ****ty Instinct anymore!

    I can't emphasize it enough, the Instinct was the worst phone I ever owned, no contest!

    I never touched a Instinct (glad I haven't) but I heard it was a pretty big fail. If the touch screen has THAT much of an issue to start with I ain't gonna bother. The Pre on the other hand I knew even before I got it that it would be a great phone. When I did it was probably a better experience than I thought and in some ways better than my ipod touch. Proof is that I started try to swipe the bottom of my ipod to go back and I forgot it didn't operate that way. Saying a lot in my book. As for any other issues I've seen or heard with this phone I've not experienced it other than the really ****ty batt life.

    Just in case its moved from front page here is the link for the page where it takes you to actual video reviews:

    I mean come on I can understand they didn't give Palm Pre praises just like other mainstream tech sites didnt but isn't this really obvious to be a mistake?
    On that list the Pre should replace the Samsung Instinct HD. The funny thing is the summary brief they give for the Instinct isn't exactly glowing. I don't believe the several editors are on the same page, each list is done by a different editor.

    At least the Pre now the Pre+ has been listed there on the top 5 smartphone list for quite some time now.

    Funny, because the Pre Plus comes in at No. 5 on the "Best Smartphones" list.
