I don't really care about using my fingernails, they are always available, but
I don't like to use a stylus since I have to find it in the first place.
(maybe if the stylus was hidden in the case it would be a little better, but
this uses space and it takes more time than fingernails)

The primary isses I have with the actual touchscreen is the UI reactivity,
I don't know if it's because the touchscreen is slow or because the software is.

I agree that a borderless phone would be more practical touchscreen-wise.
If this implies using a hard screen, implying capacitive, then why not.
