Review: LG Glimmer

Body Basics Extras Video Wrap Up Comments  11  

Touch Menus Calls/Contacts Messaging  

The Glimmer's touch screen feels similar to the LG Voyager in that you need to be firm with it. There is no glancing it, or lightly touching it. You have to press the screen with tangible force to get it to react. This means causally swiping your finger as on the iPhone to flick through menus and screens just doesn't work. You have to press, then swipe. Half the time, you end up selecting the area of the screen you first pressed, rather than simply register the beginning of a swipe.

You can alter the amount of pressure it takes to activate the screen, and also change the type of haptic vibration provided. It offers short, medium and long vibrations, as well as a double pulse. If you want to annoy everyone around you, you can set the screen to beep every time you touch it. Given the number of times you have to touch the screen to interact with the phone, this is only advisable if you don't value your safety. If you REALLY want to annoy everyone around you, set the phone to beep and vibrate when touched. This is a surefire way to get unsolicited opinions from everyone on the train or bus.
