  • Sparse app store, dated design, sharp edged keyboardLook and Feel
  • Lack of applications, missing auto-correction while typing, missing hotspot USA application
  • Lack of video recording and editing options (webOS 1.3.5.1), Speakerphone volume is too low, V Cast Music or Video not supported
  • Sluggish performance, Relatively short battery life, Occasionally runs hot, Lacks on-screen keyboard
  • No mobile hotspot
  • App Catalog still lags behind competitors (but by less than before), WebOS feels laggy at times, Slightly less intuitive than iPhone
  • Pictures not good indoors, Phone just shuts off at times for no apparent reason, Interface sometimes slows
  • Keyboard isn’t that great
  • Both could be a tad more responsive, the Pre Plus outshines the Pixi Plus
