I recently did some research about smartphones' touchscreens and found some strange results for the Samsung GT-i9003 Galaxy SL. It seems to be the only popular Android device with a touchscreen that has a lower resolution than the actual number of pixels.
For research purpose I developed a simple Android game that collects some hundred million touch events from different devices (see ). Visualizing the touch distribution for the i9003 shows that the touch-part of the GT-i9003′s touchscreen has only half the resolution of a regular Galaxy S (see ). There are two rows of pixels that can be tapped followed by two rows that are cannot be tapped.
Since we don't have an i9003 I'm curious if what I found in the data makes a difference for the device's usability. If one of you has an i9003 I would like to know if you have any problem with the screen's accuracy or latency. In particular if someone has compared the i9003 and the i9000.
Thanks in advance,
