Default Touchscreen Accuracy: DROID vs. Nexus 1 (w/ video)

Our Nexus One brothers just can't catch a break. The touchscreen accuracy on the Nexus One has been LONG documented with inaccuracy and unresponsiveness. Now, it seems that there is a lack of multi-touch fidelity in the N1 screen. Frustrated by their experience, one dude (Robert Green of Battery Powered Games) decided to create an app to get to the bottom of the issue. As you can see in the video, the N1 seems to lose track of the actual finger input, particularly if those inputs cross axes.

"When would you ever do something like that?" You ask. Anytime you're doing MT where you're rotating, pinching, say in Google Earth or something. Some have said it's an issue with the app, but it appears these guys know something about scientific method, because they test the app on the DROID and that device has no problem executing the app with perfection.

What do you all think?

The other thing worth noting is the lag as displayed from the N1 when the input moves up and down really quickly. You can see the input dot lag behind where the finger actually is. They speculate the quality of the touchscreen. I know that the DROID has an elaborate touchscreen overlay with the glass, so maybe that's why?

Here's another area in which MT is messed up in the N1:

Isn't it a good possibility that it's a software problem with the phone? I personally have the Droid, love it, glad there seems to be no touchscreen problem with it so far.

could be software... could be hardware.... hell it could be a combination of both. either way, it's buggy.

Quite possible. Even in the article I read (Engadget I think?), they said it may be possible to fix it via a firmware update, but no one really knows...

i wonder if all the N1's issues will be resolved on the verizon version. we all know the phone will sell much better on verizon that it has on tmobile.

Doubt the carrier is the issue. I have heard several sources peg the droid as having a MUCH MUCH better touchscreen

Damn that's pretty crazy. How could HTC release the phone with those issues?
