Review: LG Vu Plus
The capacitive screen on the LG Vu Plus simply isn't touch friendly. There was always a lag and delay in every action. Whether I was swiping to move from one home screen panel to the next, navigating menus or selecting options in the settings, the Vu Plus was difficult to use, and it often registered my gestures incorrectly. Unlike most capacitive touchscreen phones, the LG Vu Plus has trouble recognizing a swipe instead of a tap. At first, I thought I was using a phone with a resistive touchscreen, a technology that is friendly to styli but not fingers. I'd start a sweeping gesture with my finger, and instead of playing along the phone would select whatever my finger landed on first. This caused plenty of trouble because the Vu Plus uses an interface that is heavy on multiple screens and tabs. With so many capacitive touchscreen phones providing an excellent touch experience, it's hard to imagine any buyer tolerating the sub-par touch sensitivity on the Vu Plus.
