Hi!

Is it just me or is it freaking IMPOSSIBLE to use the touch on the Xperia X10 when you have just slightly like swetty fingers? If theres just a little water on the screen the touch goes banana crazy and it takes a while for you to even unlock the lockscreen. Is that just my phone or is it like that for everyone?

That's a problem for EVERY capacitive touchscreen, not only for the x10. Water makes it impossible for the screen to recognize touches correctly because every drop is recognized as a touch. Just google capacitive touch screen to learn more about how this technology works.

It sucks if you have sweaty palm syndrome, which I have . Even the smallest of stimulation of fingers and my whole hand starts sweating, meaning every time I use the X10 my hand sweats and the screen spazzes

The new Xperia Active is said to use a Wet Finger Tracking technology that allows you to use the screen with wet hands! See more here.

Sorry to interrupt from a P500 user, but i can use my device when my finger is wet.

I used to check for messages and news after taking a bath, so my finger is quite wet. But i have totally no question with my screen with those wet fingers, but it is on my P500 though. =)

Resistive screens worked with pressure, so it's only normal that water and moist didn't make a difference.

Hmm. here is my story. (its ur choice to believe or nt)

i was using StealthGuards last time. and it work out fine. FYI: i have sweaty fingers at times.

but after i remove it (cuz of my caseing)..i been having this problem too.

the "installation" for this screen protector is to use water and then let it dry about a day. i think thats the reason that my sweaty plams work.
