    So I have fake nails and I wanna be able to hit the keys with my nails so I can get accurate "touches" on my new hero that I just bought today? Any ideas on how to do this? PLEASE

    The hero has a capacitive screen, which means it can only detect electrically conductive materials (like the human body). So real/fake nails, which don't conduct, won't be detected.

    Some touch screens detect pressure, which is why they can detect nails.

    The screen needs sweaty fingers not nails of any sort to respond to
