At the end of the day, the Palace S mod pod is fine. The lung / restricted lung is actually pretty good, and the rest of it is fine. It’s not the first thing I would suggest to a smoker, but if a smoker bought one, it would probably be fine. Likewise for vapers, in a pinch this is fine.
If it’s between this and a Whirl … I might still pick the Whirl just because I like the coil heads. But the Palace S is still fine.
