I love the new movie, at rate it very highly, but he's actually right on this.
The Alternate Reality, though, allows the Type II phasers to have developed differently.
I'd imagine there may be other controls we simply haven't seen yet. Perhaps twisting the nozel in either Stun or Kill mode may adjust focus for various effects/strengths.
