Remember the super-sensitive touch which on Lumias which means they could be used whilst wearing gloves? Inspired by an article from Nokiamob I tested my 8. I had in mind that it was not as senstive as my old 925 because I couldn't really use it in cold weather even when wearing "touchscreen" gloves and with ski gloves it was impossible, whilst I don't remember having such problems with my 925.
So after my testing I can reveal that I can reliably use my 8 with the following materials (I didn't actually have any winter gloves with me when I did this and in any case these test are probably more repeatable by others on their phones):
1. Latex household cleaning gloves (if I press hard)
2. Three layers of a thin cotton hankerchief wrapped around my finger (four layers is unresponsive and glitchy)
3. One layer of polyester sports shorts wrapped around my finger (two layers is unresponsive and glitchy)
Whilst I don't think this is as good as my old 925 would have been, I suppose it is pretty good.
What about your phones? Can you repeat these tests on different models of HMD Nokia phones and share the results with the ret of us?
