Review: Kin Two

Form Basics Extras Video Tour Wrap-Up Comments  6  

Is It Your Type? Body The Three S's Touch  

The entire Kin Two operating system feels a bit sluggish and laggy, and the touch sensitive screen was no exception. It worked fairly well, certainly better than the cheap, resistive touchscreens you'll find on the numerous feature phones on the market. But scrolling seemed to lag behind my finger with a short but noticeable delay. From the main home screen, the kin loop, I would flick my finger left to right and sometimes nothing would happen. It would take a few flicks to get to the menu on the left or the contacts on the right. When a message bubble popped up hovering over the Kin Loop screen, it was often difficult to accurately tap the tiny "X" mark that made it disappear, and I would hit the button option beneath, instead. In the Zune music player, the phone moved considerably faster, and scrolling was lightning quick. Throughout the rest of the phone, I didn't see touch performance to match.
