MOTO Development Group recently tested today’s most popular smartphone touch screens. The results found that the iPhone was better than the Palm Pre and Motorola Droid and Nexus One. They performed pressure tests, ability to draw straight lines, and performance around the edges of the screen.

I recall the iPhone had many problems with the touch screen in its infancy. One of the early complaints that come to mind would be the keyboard. If you had you were typing quickly, it didn’t do a good job detecting what you were typing if your fingers were on two keys at a time for a split second. Updates later improved this dramatically.

It’s no secret that Android phones and others are still playing catchup with the iPhone. As a Motorola Droid owner, I’m not too worried as I expect many Android updates to follow to fix what little issues I’ve experienced with the device.
