Review: LG Cosmos Touch
Here's where things really started to fall apart on the LG Cosmos Touch. The touch response on this phone is deplorable. I've never used a phone that was worse than this for touch sensitivity. Everything went wrong. The screen is the resistive type, so it requires some pressure to tap, and that's fine, except that many taps simply didn't register at all. Neither did swipes, the gesture required to move from one panel to the next on the homescreen. I often had to jab at buttons numerous times to get them to register. Lists were impossible to navigate, as the phone usually thought I was tapping when I was simply starting my swipe gesture. Almost every feature on the phone is made worse due to the problematic touch response. The keyboard did help some, especially the direction arrows that let me skip swiping through menus and lists. But it was not enough to save this phone.
