The folks over at MOTO labs have completed another touchscreen test involving the latest smartphones, with the iPhone trumping the competition, yet again. This time around, they went with a robot to draw the test lines on touchscreens, versus the old test which was human powered.
The current round up put the following phones against each other:
- iPhone 3GS
- Google Nexus One (now in Canada!)
- HTC DROID Eris
- Motorola DROID
- Palm Pre
- Blackberry Storm 2 (added just for giggles)
If you take a look at the following results, the image shows that the iPhone touchscreen once again beats the competition. These tests may not have real world value, but for what it is, the iPhone touchscreen remains on top. However, with Apple’s competition catching up, we can only hope what the iPhone 4G will bring to counter.
Below is the video of the robot touchscreen analysis in action:
These tests might not mean much, since they were done in their own private labs. But one thing is for sure, the iPhone touchscreen has set the bar very high for its competitors to catch up to.
Have you used all of the phones listed in the test? What touchscreen would you crown as the ‘best’?
