Review: LG GS505 Sentio
As with the LG Vu Plus recently reviewed by Philip, the Sentio uses a resistive touch display. It doesn't work all that well. Once calibrated, it at least knows "where" you're pressing, although it may not always know "when" you're pressing. Its performance was inconsistent at best. It often took multiple presses to get the Sentio's display to work properly. For the more complicated flicking gestures, it failed completely. The resistive display often couldn't tell that I was swiping, and instead thought I was pressing. It would launch whatever my finger happened to touch first. This led to a lot of frustration, as I had to cancel tasks and re-navigate to whatever menu or application I was using before the touchscreen screwed up.
The poor touch execution isn't a total deal-breaker, but it really does get in the way of using the phone.
