Review: Pantech Laser
The Laser has a resistive touch display. It's behavior was somewhat inconsistent. I'd say 80% of the time, it performed perfectly. No delays, no mistaken taps or swipes, no goof-ups. The other 20% it seemed to have a mind of its own. It wouldn't register taps or swipes. It would delay and then skip through three screens at a time.
The problems seemed to occur most often on the home screen. The display behaved normally on the menu screens, and within applications and/or services.
