Review: HTC HD7

Is It Your Type Body The Three S's Touch  

Touch response on the HTC HD7 was very sensitive. Maybe too sensitive. I ran into an interesting conundrum with the large phone and the Windows Phone 7 interface. Windows Phone 7 uses swiping extensively. You’re always moving the screens left and right, and the next screen usually overhangs a little bit so you can see what’s there. The HD7 is so large that my thumb did not have room to arc up and away from the device before coming down again to touch the screen. Thus, if I wanted to tap something in the middle of the phone with only one hand, the pad of my palm often brushed the side of the display and the phone registered a swiping motion, taking me to the next screen. I’m not sure how HTC could overcome this problem on Windows Phone 7. One-handed use just might be out of the question on such a large device. Still, I’d much rather have a phone with touch response that was too sensitive than a phone that couldn’t register my swipes.
