Paul Ockenden explains smartphone touchscreen technologies:

Iím going to deal with a topic thatís sparked more than a dozen emails recently. A typical one is Steven Barrett, who asks:

ďI keep reading about capacitive and resistive touchscreens, but Iím not sure what the real-world differences are. Capacitive screens generally receive more favourable reviews than resistive, but Iíve seen some strong views in the other direction on various blogs and online forums, with people saying that resistive screens are more accurate. Iíd appreciate your views on which screen technology to choose.Ē
