How about the touch screen?
ENOUGH! Take it to the Sprint forum.
Let's talk Samsung Instinct here.

Update on Instinct Shortcomings and More
In Eric's review, he says the touch is not responsive and it took multiple touches to get it to responds. What I found:
I had ZERO problems with this. The touch is SIZE SENSITIVE so if you touch with a large area--say your thumb, you have to touch harder then if you touch with your stylist.
In Eric's review, he questioned the reception of the Instinct. What I found:
I was able to move about with a Curve & Instinct inside a building that has some weak signal spots. Both phone showed equal bars. Reception on the Instinct should be no different than other newer Sprint service phones.
I also logged into a work related site to enter a work-order on both the Instinct and the Curve. What ...
Our Review Unit was FINAL Hardware and FINAL Software
It is not defective, it is a production unit that met Samsung/Sprint QA before shipping.
We even updated the software during the review process to be sure we had the latest version.
Here's an idea: Think for yourself!
If you are on the fence, go try the phone out in the store.
To anyone who wants to corroborate what the reveiwer or any detracted posted, please, try it for your self before you bash it. Too bad you'll have to wait a couple more days to do so.
Ten people online can say that a big heap of dog crap tastes like apple pie, but until you try it yourself, you will never know.
I think the phone is awesome. I'm keeping my Treo though, because I don't need a music phone, I need a PDA.
Make your OWN opinions about the phone rather than the BS on this and other forums and reviews.
A Few Words On Bias...
I am not loyal to one manufacturer, nor one carrier. I have no emotional ties to any device or service.
Each and every review we perform of phones is based on facts that arise during our experience with the phones we test. When we spot something good, we point it out, when we spot something bad, we call it out, too.
A lot of you are complaining that we compared the Instinct to the iPhone. Sprint positioned this device as an iPhone competitor, so using the iPhone as a basis for comparison is entirely natural.
You might want to remember that we were hard on Apple for the faults that the iPhone has. It has many.
No device, no manufacturer, no carrier has a perfect...
I can't wait for the instinct to come out..but it doesn't have IM?
its not a big deal because the phone is still amazing..
Holy Crap People!!!
Constantly griping about the software "maybe" not being up to date it just making you look stupid.
To the rest of you that are calling it crap: Have you really, actually used it AND tested it out? Comparing this to the Glyde is not a fair comparison.
Now, the phone is being compared to the iphone for a reason. Have any of you looked at the videos on nowisgood.com? I have and they DIRECTLY compare the Instinct to the first iphone. Thats one of many reasons why comparing the Instinct and the iphone is a totally fair comparison. What sucks for Sprint is that the iphone 2 was announced earli...
This IS Why Phonescoops Review IS Biased And Unfair
The review also said the camera wasn't good, well go over to Sprintusers.com/forums, a few folks have been able to purchase the Instinct yesterday, they posted pictures taken by the Instinct, the pictures came out damn good.
As for the $100 Mil campaign, for those of you who believe those youtube videos are part of the campaign you're sadly mistaken. If you have gone to the movies lately (passed month almost) you would have seen t...
Let's compare your review to others
"...you know what? It's not bad, mostly because of its excellent touch screen, which is accurate and instinctive, and a far cry from the frustrating experience you get with the Samsung Glyde. Maybe this slightly boxy phone doesn't have all the sex appeal of Apple's phone, but it's pretty snazzy in its own right, and has enough pluses to satisfy those who can't part with their Sprint Simply Everything plan."
"Snappy Interface: Other touchscreen phones we've seen have annoying split-second lags. The Instinct, for the most part, does not."
Two Major Things, Outcome is great.
2.) The Instinct will work on SERO Plans,

There is the link.
Enjoy people. It's only 2 more days until the phone is out, June 20th.
I really expected more from Eric and Rich, really. I'm dissapointed in you two.
Signal Strength, Touchscreen issues, etc. Can only currently be attributed to a bad test unit. You weren't even able to test all the features of it yet.
To compare your review to maybe a new car review would show where you guys failed to deliver. Most brand new cars are test mules or pre-production versions. The magazines usually test them the same way they normally do, but at least notate what deficiencies could be caused by the fact that it's not an official version, and even still some performance will vary between...
Intinct or Blackberry Curve
Off all the things these new phones can do, actually making calls in my #1 priority.
I have almost 0 connection issues with my old, Samsung i500. I expect my next phone to work at least as good (for calling).
Which should I get?
