Many are putting this alarming result down to the fact that in a bid to produce "shocking" results, the Finnish firm purposely didn't take into account the perspective compensation technology built into the iOS software. This feature recognises that the point a user is intending to touch, and then where their finger actually lands, is based on the angle at which the screen is being viewed. It is also believed that apple deliberately registers their users touches slightly above the centre of the contact area in an effort to register touches from the tip of a finger.
So if this is common knowledge, then why set out to smear Apple with an unfair test? Well it isn't a bad bit of publicity for the OptoFidelty , with the story getting coverage on CNET, Apple Insider, the Daily Mail, International Business Times and Geek. A story reporting the results the other way around, "more expensive phone has better screen," isn't quite as headline grabbing is it?
