Re: possibly switching from hero to pre

I have a pre and a Droid. I think the Droid is a thousand times better so I have to imagine the hero is as well. I liked the pre at first but cannot stand it now.

Re: possibly switching from hero to pre

My wife and son had the Pre. She now has the Treo Pro, and he's looking at my Hero with envy. Too many hardware problems with the Pre IMO.

Re: possibly switching from hero to pre

I have the Hero (somewhere in my house collecting dust) and I also was on the TO2 for a while until I gave the Pre a whack. I since have sold my TP2 and my hero hasn't been activated since 10-23. I love the Pre. It has the best games. We have a grand theft auto type game,doom,quake. The video quality is way better than the Pre. Palm has come out with over 12 uodates for the Pre while you are still waiting for the 2.1 update and the tp2 is still waiting for theits. Browsing is better on the Pre and faster than the Hero or Tp2. Apps are great, facebook,twitter Rss feeds and alot of other. Pre demolishes the Hero on any given sunday. Give it a whirl @ a store and you'll fall in love with the "swoosh". Even bought my girl a pixi as well.

Re: possibly switching from hero to pre

it's simple. IMHO webOS wipes the floor with the Hero (note that I said webOS and not the Pre) Palm had a really bumpy launch since the Pre is plaiged with hardware issues, from cheap plastiky feel to things like screen blotches and speaker problems. It's supposed to be better with new builds but it really killed the buzz for Palm. Luckily my Pre has no such issues and I could not be happier. I had the Hero and it's a solid device but the CPU killed it's potential to be a real superphone. I got rid of it cuz of the lag (mostly browser and imput) and went back to the Pre which was night and day, It's not blazing fast but not pull-your-hair-out slow like the Hero can get. The screen looks so much better due to it being 32 million colors compared to 64k the Hero gets, browser is a joy to use, camera is 100000 times better (forget megapixels or autofocus, trust me they look waaay better) the pics are so crisp and vibrant due to superior lens that makes the 5mp of the Hero look like rubbish, we have games that only the iPhone can run besifes the Pre (Sims, Avatar, Assasins Creed, Lets Golf, Earthworm Jim, Grand Theft Auto (sorta) Guitar Hero etc. Honestly I made the right choice and toy will love it as well as long as you watch out for hardware issued and get you a solid model.

Re: possibly switching from hero to pre

My son has a Hero; I have a Diamond & a Pre (wife also has Pre). I'm not getting rid of either the Pre or the Diamond.
At least until the SuperSonic comes to Sprint. Or a WM7 phone.
The Pre with the 1.4.1.1 update, a nice theme and a few patches (especially the CPU scaling- I'm using the 800Mhz) makes for an awesome device.

Re: possibly switching from hero to pre

I'm going to side with the Pre. I actually run a pixi right now and i still prefer it to my android phone or my Windows 6.5 phone.
