Touch screen poor quality?
I recently got a Palette 3 pro, and was extremely disappointed in the screen from the first time I pressed a button. The touch functions are intermittent at best, and the amount of force required to trigger them is enough to deform the LCD and cause visual artefacts on the screen, almost as if this is a non-touch rated LCD with a touch membrane over top.
In this day and age where glass faced touch LCDs are available on amazon for DIY projects at very reasonable costs, this screen feels like a bargain basement reject.
I’ve resorted to using a stylus to get accurate touch points, but constantly feel like I’m going to break the display watching the patches of LCD crystals squish around.
Is this a good question?
I too have to use a stylus.

New firmware helps, and makes the device at least usable, but does NOT completely resolve the issue. At least on my P3, there is still substantial discoloration to the image, even with extremely light touches, and certain areas of the screen seem to not respond very well.
At least this is a step in the right direction.

I hadn't thought about using a stylus, but I will try it. I just got the new firmware and it's a little better, but there is much room for continued improvement. Let's not stop here guys; we need to have this put in the list of continued improvements along the way please. The software makes this $800 unit feel very "unfinished." I realize we are at the beginning of the product cycle, but we ARE on revision #3 of the Palette. I am excited to see where you can take this product!
