I'm sick of hearing this crap about the Instinct

by tuolumne    Sep 26, 2008, 4:26 PM

After your disastrous reviews of both the Glyde and Instinct, I am a little put off that you never maned up and actually tried other units, like you said you were going to. The Instinct does not have a capacitive touchscreen, but it is not anywhere near the level that you make it out to be. I have been using the phone since the launch date and can tell you that that initial Instinct review, where you harped on the display for false presses and unresponsiveness is absolute trash. The touch display on this phone is nearly iPhone level of responsiveness, to both flick gestures, grabbing the screen for scrolling, and selecting items. Just because you had no idea how to calibrate the display out of the box doesn't mean you can continually harp on that phone for an unresponsive touchscreen - It's not, and it's about time you revisted the Instinct LIKE YOU SAID YOU WOULD and actually got some real experience with the device before you continue to trash it months later for a "problem" that was a problem of your own, one that you adamantly refuse to admit.

I'll take a pass on this nonsense.
