The capacitive touch screen only needs to be touched without pressure to produce a signal.
The capacitive touch screen only needs one or no correction after production, and the resistance technology needs routine correction. The lifetime of the capacitance scheme is longer, because the parts in the capacitive touch screen do not need any movement.
In the resistive touch screen, the upper Ito thin film needs to be thin enough to be elastic in order to bend down and contact the Ito film below.
The capacitance technology is superior to the resistance technology in light loss and system power consumption. The choice of capacitance technology or resistance technology depends primarily on the object that touches the screen. If the finger touch, capacitive touch screen is a better choice. If you need to touch a pen, whether it is plastic or metal, resistance touch screen can be competent.
The capacitive touch screen can also use the stylus, but requires a special stylus to fit.
Surface capacitance can be used for large touch screen, and also lower, but at present can not support gesture recognition: inductive capacitance is mainly used for small and medium size touch screen, and can support gesture recognition.
Capacitive technology wear-resistant, long life, user maintenance costs low when used, so the overall operating costs of manufacturers can be further reduced.
Capacitive touch screens are capable of supporting multi-touch techniques and are not as insensitive and abrasive as resistive touch screens.
