The very first time I used the capacitive touchscreen of an iPhone it was clear that there was no other mobile device on the market that could match it's performance. Now, a few years later, that still holds true for most of us and if you'd like proof labs.moto.com has performed a touchscreen stress test.

The Droid Eris and Nexus One tied for second with only faint wiggling – but actually performed best at the edge of the screen. Last in the line-up was the Motorola Droid, which demonstrated significant wavy artifacts or “stair-stepping.”
Something to keep in mind, the MOTO Development Group used more sophisticated tools to test touchscreen accuracy but the above video simply demonstrates a technique any of you can use to evaluate the accuracy of your own device.
At the end of the day it all comes down to touchscreen hardware and the integration of that hardware with software and user interaction development. Was there really any doubt of which device would come out on top?
