Palm Pre:decent call quality, very good user interface, questionable build quality and poor battery=9.9 iPhone:lousy call quality and reception, very good user interface, good build and (by PA's estimate), decent battery=8.5 HTC Magic: excellent call and reception, very good user interface, good build and excellent battery= 7.5 ????? Nice objective review.

yeah thats what i man. the pre gets pretty much the perfect score. the camara is not that good. the keyboard is cramped, and the battery is poor. i mean all phones have their cons but how can this phone get a 9.9 that's like saying the phone is excellent without flaws. so whenever i need an opinion about a phone, believe me this is not the place i come to for help lmao

I don't mind the comparisons to other smartphones because it is necesarry to a certain degree. But Android is developing so to put that there isnt new software on it as a negative is wrong because there will be upgrades when available and it is capable as is. I don't always agree with Phonearena's ratings but I will agree that it is detailed enough for me to form my own opinion off of your testing.
