Default Palm Treo -->> Galaxy SII

after 5 years using a Palm Treo 680, was forced to get a new phone because the servers on the back end were being changed and supporting services I use:

Good things:
  • big screen
  • audio
  • apps
  • gps
  • WiFi
  • camera is wow
Bad Things:
  • Treo is a better PDA, calendar, notes and integration to phone better
  • the physical keyboard is much easier to use, especially if your bouncing around in car or bus (and I am not talking about while driving)
  • memory card removal requires removing battery :-(
  • miss the separate physical sound off switch
  • battery consumption (ok, I have 3 batteries for the Treo, 5 charging cables, and a separate battery charger, just ordered some spares for the Galaxy)
  • no clear migration path for a lot of stuff, so I am carrying the Treo around, while I migrate. battery life is long with no communication on

Welcome to Android Forums SaltlySailor. Congrats on the new phone. I'm sure after five years it wouldn't matter what you c hanged to... it's going to take some adjustment. I hope you will use these forums to get the most out of your Android experience.
