Review: LG Vortex

Touch response on the LG Vortex was dreadful. I had similar problems on the LG Optimus T on T-Mobile, but things seemed even worse on the LG Vortex. I'm guessing the cheap, plastic screen is the culprit. The phone often missed taps, especially near the edges of the phone (mostly the right edge, for some reason). This caused problems navigating the homescreen panels, but it was even more trouble when the phone missed letters while I was typing. The phone also registered some gestures incorrectly, which is especially frustrating. I would try to swipe, but the phone thought I was simply tapping on the screen, and it would choose some item from the menu or launch some app as I tried to swipe from screen to screen. These are the sort of problems I would expect from a cheap, resistive touchscreen phone, not an Android device, especially a device on Verizon's pricey lineup.
