Review: LG Versa
The Versa uses touch resistance technology, so you have to push the screen in order to get it to respond. It showed improvement when compared to the touch screen of the Dare. With the Versa, we found that one press was generally all it took to get something to happen. Similar to other LG touch phones, we also ran into few false positives. We'd touch an icon on the screen, the icon would light up, and the phone would vibrate (providing two forms of feedback), but the phone would not do anything else and fail to open the application. It worked more often than it didn't.
The Versa has haptics, but they aren't localized. This means when you press the screen, the entire phone vibrates to let you know you've touched it. The style of vibration - as well as the strength of the vibration - can be set by the user, and includes the option for no vibration or haptics at all. You can't control the sensitivity of the touch settings, though.
