Samsung Galaxy S III vs Nokia Lumia 920: touch sensitivity test (video)

Samsung Galaxy S III vs Nokia Lumia 920: touch sensitivity test (video)
Nokia has seriously stepped up its trash talk after the announcement of the Lumia 920 and we’ve seen numerous comparisons of the new Windows Phone 8 flagship device against Samsung’s Android flagship the Galaxy S III. First, optical image stabilization and low light performance is noticeably better on the Lumia 920 against both the Galaxy S III and the iPhone 5.

Now, Nokia has allowed a user in Russia to test out the touch sensitivity of the display on the Lumia 920 and compare it to the Galaxy S III. We imagine that in Russia’s freezing climate the possibility to use a phone with gloves on would be highly appreciated.

Not surprisingly, the Lumia 920 lives up to the hype and impresses as even with a folded glove, it was still able to detect touches and taps, while the Galaxy S III screen stayed idly without responding.

Nokia is using Synaptics technology for that magic to happen and honestly we’d love to see that arrive on other smartphones as well.
