Review: Garmin Asus Garminfone

Touch Menus Calls / Contacts Messaging  

Easily the biggest improvement of the Garminfone over the Nuvifone is the sensitivity of the touchscreen. It's an unfair comparison, because capacitive screens are made for fingers, but the difference brings the Garmin Asus device from almost unusable to quite responsive. Touch input stalled in a few places. The lock screen uses a too-simple double-tap to unlock, and the phone occasionally wouldn't register my first hits. The menus were almost perfectly responsive, but not quite. There was a very slight, but noticeable delay when I tried to navigate the interface quickly. The capacitive buttons beneath the screen were also better than most I've used; I never had trouble getting them to respond to my taps. The phone supports pinch and zoom gestures, and this worked nicely. Pinching made navigating the maps, the photo gallery and the Web browser much easier.
