Palm Pixi Plus for AT&T Review
Performance:


Calling quality was rather pleasing on the Palm Pixi Plus as voices on both ends sounded pretty distinguishable, but there was some minor sound distortion on our end – however, it didn't take away from its decent performance.

When comparing it directly to other smartphones running under AT&T's network, we didn't find any faults in reception with the handset during our testing in the greater Philadelphia region.

Battery life is acceptable as we managed to get almost 1 ? days before the Palm Pixi Plus required a recharge. Obviously this could've been increased by setting the brightness to the minimum setting and keeping to the habit of removing unwanted cards to free up memory.


Conclusion:

If this were released even 6 months ago when Verizon's version was released, this could've been one interesting handset for AT&T customers as their Android lineup was non-existent. Since then, we've been introduced to a myriad of decent smartphone offerings for the carrier that make the webOS powered device look like a distant thing from the past. However, its extremely inexpensive price point can be the thing that seals the deal for most customers as it ultimately packs some well tuned functionality under its hood which can be absorbed perfectly by some.
