There's an ongoing debate as to which touchscreen is more accurate between the capacitive and the resistive. Obviously, using the stylus on a resistive touchscreen will be more accurate than your finger on a capacitive one.

The Xperia X1 came with a great game called Xtrakt, which is still one of the best games available on Windows Mobile. This time, with the Xperia X2, a new puzzle game is bundled.

The goal of the game is to guide the character, Roy Tate, through a ...
