LG GM360: Touchscreen is a letdown
Member Name: dmg73
Advantages: Nice design, lightweight, slim, good pre-installed apps
Disadvantages: Touchscreen is poor, cramped onscreen keypad, needs memory card for decent storage
I owned this phone a while back and while it was a nice looking phone with some useful features overall I found it a bit disappointing. It is not a bad phone...its just not a great phone.
One of my main gripes was the touchscreen. I found this a bit unresponsive and inaccurate. It was far too easy to accidentally open an app when all I was trying to do was scroll down the screen. The sensitivity was a bit sluggish and it sometimes took 2 or 3 taps before responding. LG needs swome lessons from Apple in this depeartment.
Then there is the on-screen keypad. The spacing is tight to say the least. I found texting or writing an email could be problematic. The GM360 really could benefit from having a stylus...which it doesn't possess. People with dainty fingers may not find this problem but anyone with larger fingers may find the cramped keypad a real annoyance.
On a plus not the phone has some useful social networking apps as standard and the rest of the apps and functions are really easy to use. The GM360 is very user friendly and with its slim, lighweight design it is a good looking phone that is comfortable to use and carry around.
Another point to note is that if you want to store plenty of musinc and photos on the phone you will have to invest in a decent sized memory card.
Summary: Nice looking phone that is let down by a poor touchscreen and cramped keypad
