Review: LG Optimus T
Touch sensitivity was surprisingly disappointing on the LG Optimus T. Though I had some trouble with Sprint's Optimus phone, I chalked that up to the Sprint ID interface slowing the phone down. But the Optimus T gave me even more trouble. There was sometimes a slight lag swiping through the homescreen panels. Long lists, like my contact list or my Twitter feed, could also be jumpy, and were never very smooth. Even worse, though, was when the phone mistakenly registered taps when I was actually swiping. This is the sort of problem I usually encounter on cheap touchscreen phones with resistive screens, not fancier, capacitive touch displays. These problems weren't bad enough that they killed the entire experience, but occasionally you will feel like you are using one of the cheapest Android phones on the market.
