I don't care wether it's resistive or capacitive. I used multitouch as an argument. The main thing I whish for is a high resolution. I orginally though AMOLED screens were ahead of LCDs in areas like resolution?WizardStan said:What area is it that's important to you? You mean multi-touch?
There are pros and cons to resistive and capacitive screens. A multitouch resistive screen costs only a little bit more than a capacitive one now (which is about twice as much as a single touch resistive screen, last I checked) so ability to use more than one finger should not be a factor when selecting resistive vs capacitive screens. You should be looking at accuracy, scratch resistance, things like that.
Capacitive can be mounted behind glass making it very strong (or weak, depending on your perspective); resistive needs to be able to flex slightly, made from a softer material it is more likely to scratch.
Capacitive tend to be much more responsive to light touches: resistive needs to be pressed, but a capacitive screen will trigger if you just lightly brush it. This can either be a good or bad thing depending on what you want. To me it's a bad thing but to each their own.
Multi-touch is not important to me, but if it's important to others I will not reject a multi-touch resistive screen. I will vote against a capacitive screen if the only reason given is for the ability to multi-touch, however. If you want me to vote with you on capacitive, convince me it is the superior technology.
Huh? Really? Doesn't sound right?
