Apple’s top of the charts when it comes to touchscreen quality, according to this study by MOTO Labs. It’s about accuracy, but there are many more metrics – pressure sensitivity, performance around the edges and waviness of the lines drawn.
It’s also not about hardware – some of the phones tested use the same components. The firmware, software and calibration all play a strong part too.
The iPhone took the top spot, the runner up for first place was HTC’s Nexus One and the Droid came in last place. Both the Palm Pre and Blackberry Storm2 ranked highly.
This might just be one more thing for Apple’s enthusiastic army of fans to brag about, but for Multi-Touch technology to move forward, it’s crucial that performance improve dramatically. The MOTO article goes on to say that the slackers of the bunch would most likely improve as touchscreens become more commonplace.
