I haven't found it to be uber consistent on tapping my phone screen, but in a pinch and with a moment of patience, it responds to a tap after a try or two. Sometimes instantly. They're warm and so soft, stylish and functional. It does what I need it to do: keep me from tapping madly at my screen (wearing other gloves) to answer a call and end up ripping off my glove to answer or take a photo. It has its cons I suppose, but I'm happy with it and my sister's getting a pair.
