Review: Pantech Pursuit
The Pantech Pursuit uses a resistive touchscreen. Though I'm usually not a fan of the technology since it's less amenable to fingertips, the Pursuit was surprisingly responsive to the touch. The phone uses a three panel system for the homescreen and the menus, and it was easy to control the sliding action. Even the tiny buttons in the camera app were easy to tap on the first try. This was the first sign for me that the Pursuit was a better-than-average phone. While much more expensive smartphones - like the LG Fathom I reviewed recently - tend to earn a failing grade on resistive touch sensitivity, the Pursuit rarely gave me any trouble. A few times the idle screen, the middle home screen wouldn't respond at all to my swipes. But when it perked up again, it worked perfectly with no delay. I'm guessing that's a software problem, and not a symptom of the touchscreen.
