iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c Touchscreens not as accurate as older Galaxy S3

Apple iPhone 5sWhile Apple’s iPad mini was found to have the fastest touchscreen, at least amongst tablets, and with Apple’s iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c also being twice as responsive compared to their Android competition, we’re not sure if speed matters especially given that after certain tests were conducted that it was found that both devices’ touchscreens were not as accurate compared to competing products, like the Samsung Galaxy S3. This is according to a test conducted by Finnish testing company, OptoFidelity, who found that during their testing using software and a robotic finger, that the edges of the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c were poor at detecting touches, a disadvantage that could affect overall typing accuracy on the devices.

iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c Touchscreens not as accurate as older Galaxy S3

For example trying to hit the letters Q, O, and P, could be harder for iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c users due to the touchscreen reportedly being less accurate, although in all fairness keyboard accuracy on iPhone devices has not exactly been a major complaint by iPhone users to date. The Samsung Galaxy S3 on the other hand was found to have near-uniform accuracy across the display, suggesting that typing accuracy on Samsung’s smartphone should in theory be more accurate. Our review of the iPhone 5s did not find much fault with the onscreen keyboard, so perhaps the lack of accuracy is made up by good predictability and autocorrection. In any case what do you guys think? Is this something you’ve noticed on your iPhone 5s or iPhone 5c prior to being informed of its inaccuracy?:
