Review: LG Optimus S
The LG Optimus S was very sensitive to my touch, but it wasn't close to perfect. There was a slight lag on the homescreen panels. It wasn't as bad as the delay I found on the Samsung Transform, but it was noticeable. Also, occasionally the screen would not respond at all to my first swipe and I had to make a quick, second pass. The worst offender on this phone, however, is the keyboard. The stock Android keyboard could be very unresponsive, and perhaps a bit buggy. Sometimes, letters would not appear on screen after I tapped them. When you tap a letter on the Android virtual QWERTY, it usually pops up above your finger, for visual confirmation. This often did not happen on the LG Optimus S. Sometimes this meant the letter would not appear, but more often the letter would appear, just without the visual cue from the keyboard. This made typing more difficult, especially when it came to passwords with hidden letters.
