Touch screen respond time
Hi, first of all, I would like to introduce myself. I got my nexus 5 the first week that it was announced and was amazed at the speed of the new device running both kitkat 4.4 and snapdragon 800 as well as having a ram of 2gb. I was then further blown away when I switched to ART runtime. Note, my previous phone was a Xperia Arc. So compared to that, the difference was between sky and ground.
I think the speed difference in overall smoothness of the phone could be due to kitkat 4.4 or snapdragon 800 while the speed of switching between app was due to 2gb ram and ART.
Anyway, I was very pleased with it as it is finally a phone which is comparable in smoothness to the ios world of iphones.
TL;DR, nexus 5 is very fast.
Now, onto the point. I recently came across this article. http://www.phonearena.com/news/Funky...so-far_id54887
And I see that HTC M8 topped the chart with nexus 5 tied with iphone 5/5s.
My question is this:
1. Is there anyway to improve the response time through software tweaks? either through rom, kernel or some sort of mod? or is it all impossible as it is hardware based?
2. How does the few milisecond affects the overall speed of the phone? app opening speed, overall smoothness in typing, responsiveness in games,etc
