I have been searching for a new smartphone (actually my first one). Being a member of middle class family, I can only afford a used one only.
But the search has been a headache.. found smartphones with all good features and specs but then it would have a resistive touchscreen. Those with capacitive touchscreens would then have only this as a good feature while others with everything right including display.. would be out of my budget.
I have never used a touchscreen before (apart from an hour or two of playing around with iphone 3g). Are resistive touchscreens really that bad or its just me being over afraid? I definitely don't want to use a stylus. Want to do everything with my finger but that also without putting too much pressure.
So as the main difference between resistive and capacitive displays is that one requires pressure while other works on some other kind of technology which just needs a touch. What I want to know is how much pressure? Is it really hard on the fingers as I send msgs a lot?
Second question is that how much difference would be there between TFT and LCD displays of smartphones?
One more to add, how much will you rate Microsoft Windows Mobile against Android?
Thanks for your time and waiting for your replies,
