Review: Motorola Droid 2
Touch sensitivity on the Motorola Droid 2 was fine, but could have been much better. The phone relies on touch sensitive buttons beneath the screen, and I did not like the choice. I have never used touch sensitive buttons that I felt were better than the real thing. On the Droid 2, they were slow to react, and often didn’t feel my taps unless I moved my finger around a bit to find the right spot. I’ve felt worse (some Samsung Galaxy S phones, for instance), but hardware keys would be a much better choice.
The screen itself is fine, but not the most sensitive touchscreen I’ve used. Flicking between screens occasionally has no effect whatsoever, and sometimes the screen merely lagged behind my swiping. When you swipe from one home screen to the next, dots at the bottom of the screen tell you at which panel you’re looking. I found these to be jerky and tough to use effectively. Again, I wonder if Motorola’s flash and dazzle has actually hurt performance, now with touch sensitivity in addition to battery life.
