Default High sensitivity mode - technically

First of all, I do not know if it is an appropriate place to ask such a question, but I have not found any better place.

The point is, that I need to specify with an appropriate scale, that a capacitive screen can be used with gloves on hands. For example, I can say that something is heavy, because its weight is over 10 kilograms. I have to specify the ability of operating on a capacitive screen with gloves on in a similar way.

As far as I know, the sensitivity of touch screen is based on the capacitance of capacitors built within the screen. Am I right? Is it, what makes the high sensitivity mode in i9505 possible? If so, what capacitance should allow the screen to recognise a touch through a glove?

A strange question it is, I know ;D

Any help would be appreciated, thanks
