Capacitive screens just need really slight touches while resistive ones need a 
real pressure to register the click. Although I love the Neo, I really like 
using f.e. an iPod Touch because it feels _way_ better. Which might be also 
caused by the polished ui, but the touchscreen definitely influences that.
