Samsung S5230 Star review: Hot starlet

06 July 2009
Samsung are going to great lengths to pile pressure on the LG Cookie. While the Samsung S5600 Preston aims to outdo it, the 5230 Star is set for a head-on collision course. This starlet’s middle name...

        for input resistive is much faster epically for on screen Qwerty with a stylus, this is why WinMo is still alive

        while capacitive does have a better flow and seemly better accuracy for multi touch

        resistive screens are also capable of multi touch, if the software can work with it however its not as flowing as Capacitive

        in the end its the user that has to decide until the come up with some hybrid of both

          Leif, 06 Jul 2009Resistive touch = Fail. Why bother releasing a resistive t... moreI beg to differ

          Capacitive touchs do not

          allow precise & rapid stylus inputs
          function in cold enviroments where gloves are required

          Not clear to me which technology is best. maybe the best solution hasn't arrived at the market place yet.

          My personal experience with touchcreens has the palm T5 & HTC advantage resistive touchscreens outperforming an apple iPhone 3G and apple ipod touch capacitive touchscreens. The finger based input just didn't perform as well as a stylus with a good quality screen.

                  Resistive touch = Fail.
                  Why bother releasing a resistive touchscreen phone these days? Durable, solid-state, Capacitive technology is the clear winner in handhelds. Aside from dispensing with styli, cap screens don't activate in the pocket, have greater scratch resistance, don't wear out over time, and support multi-touch, all while offering superior optical clarity.
