    As an owner of both the iPhone and the Droid, i have noticed the less responsive screen on the Droid. Here is an article further supporting that claim: Finger Fail: Why Most Touchscreens Miss the Point | Gadget Lab | Wired.com

    However, since it's not the hardware that is an issue, could 2.1 potentially fix the responsiveness?



    P.S Most people don't even notice the less responsive screen on the Droid if they didn't come from the iPhone or iPod Touch.

    Coming from a dare to a strom to a droid and by far its been the best but i know it anit the best.

    If I could desgin a phone I would take the time to get the best that I can into a flagship phone. Dont get me wrong i think its an 8/10 over all phone with OS being a 9.9/10. But I hope the next Big Flagship Android for big red gets it up to 10/10 or darn near close.

    I've never used an ipod touch or iphone for more than 30 seconds, so I'm not sure how those are.

    But when I was researching the droid and watching videos and stuff, I noticed EVERY time when someone would touch something and it wouldn't open, and they'd have to touch it again. It always bugged the hell out of me.

    I experience the same exact thing. I've gotten used to it now and don't think its that big of a deal, but there are times when it makes me want to throw the damn thing. Usually feel that way if I'm trying to do something when driving.

    So in the end, I'd like a more sensitive touch screen too.

    Repost, and old crap at that. I posted a screenshot a while back of my own test, and it looked as good as it did on the iPhone.

    It also varied between different used to test.

    Crap results that were skewed to make the iPhone look good.

    First of all this is not a repost, the article date is today, 8pm.

    You are probably referring to an old test, which was done by a different person.

    Go try Handwrite, from the Market, to see how straight your lines are.

    I have never owned an iPhone (never will) but I did notice lag and a lack of responsiveness when I first got the Droid. That was the main reason I wanted to overclock, and now I have no complaints. Admittedly it sucks that peak performance does not come out of the box.

    Then try Picso, and see what a major difference it is between the two.

    Thats why the test is bogus.
