Is It Your Type? Body The Three S's Touch  

The 3.1-inch touchscreen on the Devour is not as responsive as I like. Occasionally, button taps wouldn't register properly, and I'd have to angle my finger properly to get a hit, just as I did with the touch buttons beneath the screen. This was especially annoying when the phone had trouble dialing for a call. A few times during my tests, the Devour also registered a key press when I was really swiping my finger, which caused an app or widget to open unexpectedly. It's a slightly annoying problem, though it wasn't a dealbreaker.

Those touch buttons are far worse, especially the back button, which is closest to the edge of the phone. A few times I would mash the button repeatedly and get no response, even while the Home and Menu buttons seemed to work properly.

The phone interface responded well to touch, but it wasn't perfect, especially when I was navigating the 5-pane home screen. There was a slight lag between swiping my finger left or right and seeing the screen move. This wasn't as much a problem on long lists, like my music playlists or my contacts list, though some Web pages would also lag when I was panning and scrolling.
