Review: Samsung Transform
There is a serious lag to the touch sensitivity on the Samsung Transform, especially on the main homescreens. I'd swipe my finger to move from panel to panel, and the phone would think things over for a few seconds, then react. Sometimes, I saw no reaction at all, the screen would simply sit idle, and I had to swipe a few times to move the panels right and left. Even though the screen is capacitive, the phone's poor response reminded me of the cheaper resistive screens you'll find on Samsung's touchscreen feature phones. The touch sensitive buttons beneath the screen were not much better. Often, there was a delay after pressing these buttons. Sometimes, I would feel the vibrating haptic feedback from the phone, but nothing actually happened on screen.
