I definitely prefer capacitive, resistive touch screens make me so irritated for some reason within using one for 10 minutes I want to throw my phone down a well. Mostly because they don't pick up unless you hit them hard enough and often it will read your touch but not do anything. I do rather like capacitive touch screens and I wish that I had not made my phone purchase so full of touch screen hate after trying to text with my old resistive phone. I picked the droid instead of the 1ghz desire but I really don't need the keyboard as badly as I thought. Capacitive screens are much different from resistive screens as far as ease of use. Your preference?
