Which One Do You Prefer, Resistive Touch Screen Or Capacitive Touch Screen?

The difference between pcap capacitive touch screen and resistive touch screen is mainly reflected in touch sensitivity, accuracy, cost, multi-touch feasibility, damage resistance, cleanliness, and visual effects in the sun.

The Difference of Resistive Touch Screen And Pcap Capacitive Touch Screen


Touch Sensitivity

1.Resistive touch screen:

Pressure is needed to bring all the layers of the screen into contact. It can be operated with fingers (even gloves), nails, stylus, etc. In the Asian market, the support of the stylus is very important, and the gesture and character recognition department is valued.

2.Capacitive touch screen:

The slightest contact with the surface of a charged finger can also activate the capacitive sensing system at the bottom of the screen. Non-living body, nails, gloves are invalid. Handwriting recognition is difficult.


1.Resistive touch screen: The accuracy of the resistive touch screen is lower than that of the pcap capacitive touch screen. Because it uses pressure after all. If the resistance of the touch screen is not strong enough. It will not respond to the touch screen

2.Capacitive touch screen: It is capacitive sensing through the human body. So you only need to touch it lightly and it will react.


1.Resistive touch screen: Relative to capacitive touch screen. The cost of resistive touch screens is very low.

2.Capacitive touch screen: Its cost is higher than that of resistive touch screen. Because there are more materials and components used.

Multi-touch Function:

1.Resistive touch screen: because it works by pressing. So it can't support multi-touch function, only single-point touch.

2.Capacitive touch screen: The pcap capacitive touch screen now supports multi-touch. Now large-size touch screens can support 10-point touch.

Damage Resistance

1.Resistive touch screen: Its basic characteristics determine that its top is relatively soft and needs to be pressed. This makes the screen very easy to scratch. Resistive screens require a protective film and relatively frequent calibration.

2.Capacitive touch screen: the outer layer can be made of glass. In this way, although the glass is not indestructible and may break under severe impact. It is best to deal with daily friction and stains.


1.Resistive touch screen: because it can be operated with a stylus or nails. But it is not easy to leave fingerprints. And there are oil stains and bacteria on the screen

2.Capacitive touch screen: touch with the whole finger, but the outer glass is easier to clean
