    hi all.
    are the screens on the x10 truly capacitive?? is there a difference?. hardware, software? only asking because being the user of an i pod touch they are very different. with the x10 being much less responsive/error prone/over sensitive?. also reading this questions the type of screen Capacitive sensing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia . especially the 'advantages' part about cleaning with cloths and accidental command inputs. which, im sad to say is wrong, because mine does, and also when in my pocket it has had 'accidental command inputs!' lalso if i squeeze the side of the phone it will input somthing random. all of which doesnt happen with my ipod touch!. so could the x10 be a mix of capacitive and resistive?
    sorry if i went on a bit, and thanks for your time

    there is no such thing as a "mix". it is a capacitive touch screen

    yes didnt think there would be.
    and without sounding funny my point is, why is it showing some Characteristics of a resistive screen?, eg. activating things in my pocket, or when i wipe finger print smudges off on my t-shirt (no holes in my clothes;)). squeeze the side of the phone,, or should i say holding tightly while tryin to open usb cover ;)
    thanks again

    it works by detecting the small electrical field that your skin has. this field can go through things like your t shirt. this is how you can use a screen protector and it can still detect ur touch.

    about squeezing, probably your skin comes close to the touch sensitive area of the panel

    My iPhone, although not supposed to, can detect presses through clothes as well... I was trying to prove a point that it couldnt and it made me look stupid when it reacted through my clothes :(

    I have a similar problem but much worse and it's making my phone unusable! Did you ever find a solution?

    Back everything up (sync contacts online and copy the pics and music and videos off the phone) then do a factory reset in the options.

    Remove all the junk you have loaded on it since you got it.

    Just like a computer. I recommended reinstall once every 6-8 months if you are a very heavy user and have at one point downloaded a bunch of different apps, no matter what Android phone you have.
