iPad Mini and iPad 4 Touchscreens are Most Responsive

TouchMarks' touchscreen test by Agawi ranked Apple’s iPad mini and iPad 4 on top as these had some very fast responses to being touched by users. This was in contrast to the least responsive gadget which happened to be Android.

iPad Mini and iPad 4 Touchscreens are Most Responsive

Agawi laid out its TouchMarks study for all to see and the results speak for themselves. Among the tablets that got tested and reviewed can be included: Microsoft’s Surface, Amazon’s Kindle, Android Tablets (NVIDIA, Samsung and Google’s Nexus) not to mention Apple’s iPad mini and iPad 4

As was expected, Apple came out on top of TouchMarks' touchscreen test ranks . Like its previous iPhone 5 which also happened to be the best in its category, these two tablets were in the vanguard. The other tablets were not as costly too. This again lends credence to the saying that you ought to pay more for something of higher quality instead of paying less and ending up with a malfunctioning device

The top brass at Apple are hardly surprised at the results. That was what they were expecting seeing the amount of painstaking work that went into creating the stuff. Apple’s products were 1.5 times as fast as the other high end gadgets. The perfectionist streak that comes courtesy of its founder, who is not with us anymore, continues unabated. 

Touch screen responsiveness was the ultimate user-friendly feature and Apple has beaten the others hands down in this facility. Samsung, Nokia and HTC have all given up in front of Apple’s prowess. They lag far behind in this race of lightning reflexes.
