    Its difficult to click/choose small icons or buttons unless you use some kind of touch screen pen

    That pen can scratch the screen if you dont have a protective layer on it, that layer can make it pretty hard to select and click on items

    Chatting or texting can be harder than keyboard/keypad

    Your hand might block the screen when using it

    If you have a full touchscreen with no buttons and a program crashes, it will be pretty hard to quit the program since the entire screen will be responsive

    Touch screens drain battery life and use a lot of power pretty fast

    And some touch screens might be slow and laggy

    I used to have the Nokia 5800 and loved it but switched to blackberry because of its services

    in the end it all comes down to which device you're talking about or for what use and your own opinion.

    choose for the nokia 720. Mmx canvas 2 hd seems appealing with the on paper specs, however the mediatek chipset, much less ram will harm you whenever you will multi job. fairly choose for the nokia lumia 720. The residing house windows os is the snapiest os.
