    Multitouch on Galaxy Spica is better than the multitouch on Nexus One

    Perchè hanno messo uno schermo del genere su un cell come il Nexus One? Cmq rimane uno dei miei preferiti.

    @Tazy50 rip the innards of the iphone out and stamp on them, without actually telling you to). The power is there in the newer phones, but i think they’re all scared of a lawsuit if they actually implement it. However if you flash custom roms (Which isnt hard by any stretch of the imagination) then you can easily give yourself more freedom and everyone’s happy. I personally love my nexus one because google designed it to be rooted, they want you to play with it, its a dev phone.Hope this helped

    @Tazy50 Sorry to give you essays to read, google doesn’t let me post more than ~450 characters :( . The screen in the nexus has limitations, and that’s the key word here. I’m not sure if google designed it to be multitouch to begin with, so you should be glad you can even pinch zoom. However manufacterers realised it was a desirable thing to implement and so they’ve put in place multi-touch screens even though official roms rarely make use of it (think of it as them giving you the power to

    @Tazy50 To fix this issue you’re going to have to replace your screen and then mod your phone to fit the screen and re-write drivers and your own ROM in order to get multitouch working correctly….easier just to buy a new phone imo. However i shall never give up my nexus one, best phone i’ve ever had. I use my PC to game on anyway…so the multitouch issue doesnt really bother me, works fine in a browser and thats all i need. Other people might be more picky, but this issue cant be 100% fixed

  7. harper16 says:

    @Tazy50 No this is completely and utterly a hardware issue. The G1 has the same issue ( i own both phones ) because they use similar displays. The hardware is reporting where it thinks your fingers are, how can you fix this by software? You can’t … there may be software workarounds but if the hardware isn’t designed correctly then you’re gonna run into problems. Multitouch on the g1 and nexus (and a few other phones) is very basic, however the newer phones are using PROPER multitouch screens

  8. Tazy50 says:

    @harper16 damn…is this a software issue? or the hardware? can an update fix that?

  9. harper16 says:

    So it works on a browser but thats because the nexus one can cope with simple gestures. Things that require more precise multitouch will fail (ie. games that NEED to know the position of both your fingers – pinch zoom doesnt, it just needs to know if you’re taking them further apart or not, something simple that the nexus can do). This video was to illustrate what the hardware is reporting, not what workarounds the software developers have done..this will never be fixed by software

    @mystuff3040 Okay, look. Multi-touch on the droid is better. But on the nexus one, it will do the same FUNCTION though.

  11. mystuff3040 says:

    @Tazy50 FAIL (you)

  12. mystuff3040 says:

    @AsianTaeHyun
    From wikipedia…- multi-touch refers to the ability to simultaneously register three or more distinct positions of input touches. The nexus one just uses single/dual touch gestures.

  13. C3M2010 says:

    The owners of Nexus One answer please. Repaired it at android 2.2?

  14. Tazy50 says:

    God, I hate it when people compare multi-touch on these stupid apps. Apps are very prone to errors, especially when made by your “friends”. Even when made by officials, as well. TRY IT ON A BROWSER, PLEASE.

    Droid is Giggin

  16. wjlovedlj says:

    Nexus One is so bad!!!

  17. pangtengchen says:

    people like fusion2007 also shame on you. why, it actually the software, that respond, the screen is not the matter, it the fricking software

  18. tanjt says:

    @AsianTaeHyun

    But the feel of touch on apps worse than Iphone…much…

  19. fourzero40 says:

    @fusion2007 Doesn’t the droid have the same CPU as iphone also?

  20. shalpp says:

    By simply doesn’t exist he means it sucks dicks.

    О_0 wow! Droid does! Motorola rulez

  22. ArkanumTheStrongest says:

    @djlobb HTC Incredible uses the maXtouch sensor.

  23. djlobb says:

    Motorola Droid has a Balda touch panel, the HTC uses a Synaptics ClearPad 2000 with only limited multi-touch, shame, but hopefully now the Synaptics Clearpad 3000 with upto 10 points of touch has been released, hopefully HTC and others with use that pad or the Balda, but the ClearPad 3000 is fine. The Droid Incredible (HTC) has ditched the Clearpad 2000 for something else, whether its the Balda or not I’m not sure.

  24. blenderben says:

    @AsianTaeHyun it’s not that it doesn’t exist, he is saying that it is SO buggy and “doesn’t work properly” that its’ pretty much a broken multi-touch display.
    no worries HTC incredible destroys the N1 in every way.

  25. xxGjbbyxx says:

    As far as games, try Toon Wars.
    Works fine for my N1s also.
