Pre looks laggy and buggy as hell. how many presses of the power button needed to turn it on? how many swipes to unlock it? how many flicks to flick a card away?
and i don't like webOS because i don't want to be out there on a tiny proprietary island all by myself.

I'm new here to the Android forums, I'm researching my wife's and my next phone. We are both using the Pre now, we can upgrade at the end of the month. I found several threads about former Pre owners/users, they all are missing there Pre's but glad they switched. I've about made up my mind that were going to get the EVO. Thanks to all former Pre owner's for posting your opinion's. Thank god for spell checker's, I almost typed onions instead of opinion's. LOL,,,LOL.

Make the jump, you won't be sorry. I had to fire up my Pre the other night to email a couple of photos from it and it took me - I'm not kidding - about TWENTY MINUTES to get the task done. Watching the card pop up and glow for five seconds before the app opened was a shock after three months of blazing EVO speed. I don't miss a thing about it that would make suffering with the poor hardware worth it."The Nexus 5 is such a big black slab of power that if you dropped it down in the middle of a pack of monkeys, they'd start using weapons." - Dirk Belligerent.

I remember the Pre keyboard being a pain. I could never get used to how cramped it was. Now that I have my compact qwerty on my EVO, typing ion a phone Hanover been so enjoyable. The larger screen size and faster processor make the EVO a better overall machine. I also have to add that Android is a lot better than WebOS.If I were never here, you would never know.

I moved to the EVO from Pre within the last month when my Pre got too flaky to use any longer (h/w issues). I was a hardcore fan and I thought I'd miss WebOS - I did at first but now it is a distant memory. The EVO is a nice piece of h/w and I like Android more every day. Even if HP came out with a new h/w platform for WebOS I couldn't see myself going back.

I'm finishing my first week with the Evo coming from the Pre. Hardware wise there is no comparison. I have gotten used to the virtual keyboard faster than I thought I would (typing this post from my Evo).
The apps are apps - there are plenty of them out there, and I'm sure you will find anything you need.
The one thing I really miss is the email program. I use GMail, and have tried both stock apps and K-9 and admittedly am disappointed with all of them. I liked the interface on the WebOS program and can't seem to find one that is similar.
Other than that it's a great device.

i'm on my EVO since my pre got hit by salt water. I have to say, I'm probably the only one that misses Web OS. I think mainly, I use multi tasking quite a bit. I'd say battery life is about the same, but I never have a problem. I have a car charger, and whenever it's in the car, it's charging. Same goes with the EVO.
However, it wasn't until recently, where I sided with the EVO. That's only because I rooted the damn thing, and installed CM6. Wow, what a difference the 30 fps did! I almost went back to another Palm Pre!

Three months in with EVO and I feel bad for my wife using my old Pre. The usuable applications on the EVO is amazing let alone the look. You want flash, you got it, You want Sling, you got it. You want LogmeIn, you got it. You want PrinterShare, you got it. I am now embarassed I owned the Pre. In one year, I will be embarrased I owned the EVO.
