an underestimated champ! Go forth and see for yourself! Read my review and you will see why.

Bro, I read your review and you say "Using the same touch technology as the iPhone there is no need to press hard...." This phone actually has a resistive touchscreen and the iphone (as well as the G1 and Storm) have capacitive touchscreens which are superior in my opinion. I played with the Krave and the screen is NOT as responsive as the iphone's or G1's. And the flip is just lame.

Then you got a dud. There are reports of a specific datecode of phones where the touchscreen seems to be a little laggy. These phones seem to be mostly found on display at the stores, which is a shame. The newest datecodes, specifically datecodes 3908 and 4008 are reported to have lagless touchscreens. Plain and simple, you got a dud. You can't judge a phone based on a display model. All phones are not created equal.

It's capacitive. I'm quite sure of that.

I won't say it's as good as the iPhone's, but it is capacitive. In my experience the software is not as finely tuned or responsive. I experienced more lags with the Krave, and it's not as good at deciding between a touch and a swipe, for example.

You're quite rude and obsessed with this phone. I personally have played with a few of these in my store and I wouldn't buy nor recommend one to anyone.

Right, I did state that it has the same technology and coming from the using the iPhone and iPhone 3G I can surely tell you that you are absolutely wrong! Resistive touch means the phone has two screens and when it is depressed say by a finger the phone computes the connection on a simple XY axis and bing bang bada boom it cranks out a calculation and you have your response....now, granted this phone does technically have two screens, however, resistive touch would ultimately be rendered useless with the flip portion of the touch. Resistive, simply put, means you have to press. Capacitive means the phone registers a weak electrical current from your touch....no pressing necessary. I agree with Rich that the iPhone's interface is a lot qui...
