Moshi Digits Touch Screen Gloves hands-on

Moshi Digits Touch Screen Gloves hands-on
Even though we’re in the last stretch of winter, it doesn’t mean we should start whipping out the spring gear right now – especially when the temperatures around the country vary greatly week to week. Knowing that, we’re still bundling up appropriately for the occasion, but for those of us living in places that are still being bombarded with frigid conditions, it’s a battle trying to use our touchscreen devices outside in the cold.

Currently, we’ve been checking out the Moshi’s Digits Touch Screen Gloves, which at $30 a pair proves to be a worthy investment for those intent on constantly using their devices in these chilly conditions. First and foremost, we enjoy the comfortable feel of the Moshi Digits, seeing that it’s lined with soft microfleece, which does a great job in retaining heat. However, it’s far from being the most stylish pair of gloves out there. Then again, the mere fact that the Moshi Digits gives us the accuracy that’s required to operate our touchscreen devices in the cold, we can’t ask for anything better for the situation at hand.

So how is it that our touchscreen devices are able to recognize all of our presses and swipes? Well, the Moshi Digits is lined with conducive fiber on all 10 of its fingertips. Even better, we’re thankful that accuracy isn’t compromised one bit when using the gloves – even though we have a thick screen protector on our device. However, we wouldn’t suggest trying to roll up some snowballs with the gloves. Keeping our hands warm and enabling us to interact with our touch screen devices, it’s a win-win situation.

who wants to use Gloves on the iPhone tiny screen ?! just buy the nokia lumia 920 or even the 720 and you are ready to go.

Get Lumia 920 (or 720), no need to get capacitive gloves. $30 isn't bad though for a pair of capacitive gloves. I got a pair last year for Christmas that were about $25, but leather and lined.

Been there, done that, nokia rules. Nice product though, for the less previledged fandroids and iSheep

And for ladies (& gents) who have very long nails, you'll have no problems on the 920 either, using your nails to touch the screen :)

Not impressive. Xperia Sola does the same.

I concur with recommending a Lumia 920 or similiar smartphone with capacitive screens. I take it for granted that my 920 doesn't require gloves, and forgot that non-Nokia devices out there cannot be operated with gloves or mitts in cold weather... However, if you do have a conventional screen, these gloves look nice :o`
