If you need a phone phone with a few apps, not a compuer

Yes, I'd recommend this product.

I only got the phone today, but researched it thoroughly. So far I'm very happy. Two things it doesn't appear to do: 1. 5GHz wifi - it is limited to the 2.4GHz band. 2. USB-C to headset mic/earphone audio. The good: Extremely small. A pocket smartwatch (without the bio stuff). Simple UI, but everything works. Keyboard is as usable as bigger screens. Works with USB (e.g. FLIR One) and is great for this. Charges very fast (see below). Sound is very good for such a small device. The Bad: Battery life, if you aren't using this as a phone phone. Leave Wifi/BT off. Android 8.1 - missing a few features. IKeep hitting the wrong things, like the "scroll bar" instead of a button, or the task button instead of something at the bottom, but I think I just need to get used to it. My "other device" is a tablet including a keyboard, with a USB hotspot (so I can know it is off and not fight with the Mifi annoyances). I had a simple flip feature phone and it worked well but was only 3G. I also wanted to use a few phone apps (robocall reject, record, etc.). This works well to replace it. Think cooper mini or Smart fortwo instead of a SUV. All mobile devices are compromises, and I now have a great phone phone, and a great tablet/laptop replacement (Galaxy Tab S6).

I really like the Palm, the only drawbacks are the battery life and it doesn't work internationally. It keeps you off your phone and if that's not what you want don't get it. But if you would like to see more of the world and less of your screen its great.

I have the palm for over a year now, what can I say, it's amazing I love it, as someone that wants to stay connected to the world but from the other side hate the fact that devices got so enormous and are stealing all the property in my pocket, this is amazing, one drawback is the battery, you can literally watch it drink itself without even using the device, one more drawback if your fingers are a bit what can I say, more like mini bagels you will have a hart time typing on the tiny keyboard, but still worth it

Great as a 2nd work phone!

This is my first Smart Phone. Previously I had a little cell phone w/pull out keyboard to text. I was reluctant to get a Smart Phone because I did not want to be bothered w/a large phone strapped to my belt! This little Palm Phone is fantastic! It does everything I need it to do, it is small enough to fit in my pocket, and the camera is much better than my antique phone's! The texting took some time to get used to (Never had a touch screen before, & the keyboard is definitely on the small side), but for me the advantages of having a small phone outweigh any disadvantages. The battery generally lasts me all day! I am a Baby Boomer (55+years of age), so I am not constantly on the phone playing games or on Social Media. I turn the phone off at night. So, for me the phone is everything I hoped it would be. No regrets!! And some of my younger Colleagues at work are truly fascinated by my phone! They think it is cute! :)

An Outstanding Compact Phone!

Yes, I'd recommend this product.

I have this device as a companion device to a "regular" android phone, which was it's original intended use before the standalone option. I absolutely love this phone! The design is very sleek and lightweight, and the phone feels really comfortable to hold. The UI experience is very good, the keyboard is a little small but isn't too bad when needed, and voice transcription does an excellent job for the majority of uses. The phone was even able to handle Android Auto with my car! I was so impressed. Battery life is certainly on the shorter side which is why I think this works better as a companion phone than a standalone phone, but Palm offers a battery case that significantly extends the battery life of the phone and supports wireless charging, so that should fix the issue should people need more battery life. 10/10, love it!
