Review: Nokia C7 Astound
Some of Nokia's first touch-based phones used resistive touch displays, and were miserable to use. The Astound — like the N8 before it — thankfully transitions to the superior capacitive technology. The display is often held up thanks to the software. It is laggy and slow, and often doesn't register presses. Accuracy was fine, and the on-board tools let you calibrate the screen, but the touch experience is badly lagging what's offered on the best Android devices (and Windows Phone, and iOS, etc.).
