Review: Samsung Focus with Windows Phone 7
The Samsung Focus is among the most sensitive touchscreen phones I've tried. It reacted swiftly to every tap and swipe. Even the slightest brush produced a fast action. This is great, because the Windows Phone interface relies on a lot of swiping left and right. The touch sensitive keys below the phone's screen were also nice and sensitive. I'm usually not a fan of touch buttons, but these gave me no trouble, and a light haptic kick let me know I had found the right spot every time I tapped.
