This phone was good-looking but not nearly as well-build as the old Trophy. Even though it shared similar specifications as the Lumia 928, that device was much more solidly-built and ran Windows Phone 8 better. I loaded Windows 8.1 on this and it runs OK as a backup device.
My first taste of Windows Phone, and I liked it! After trying Android with the Samsung Galaxy Nexus I knew it just wasn't ready and could not replace my webOS device. WP7 showed real promise with its unique interface. The final update to 7.8 was welcome, but WP8 was a real leap.
What the Palm Pre Plus should have been. While I really enjoy webOS, it really needs decent hardware to perform at its best. This phone allowed webOS to shine and was a great device. Too bad the market decided that webOS was not the way to go. iOS9 and Android 6 (Marshmallow) are finally caught up and surpassing this ancient OS.
This and the Palm Pre Plus were my first smartphones, and I still prefer webOS overall to iOS and Android. With iOS9 and Android 6 (Marshmallow) that preference has become more of a nostalgia. I prefered the Palm Pre Plus to the Pixi Plus due to the larger screen and more powerful hardware of the Pre.
