I actually don't mind the Prime touchscreen. The text is small but you can resize it and at least we now have semi-smooth-scrolling (semi as in some lag occurs). We can't zoom in/out outside graphs and custom programs like mViewer, though.


Yeah the Prime is great as far as how it functions but if you have your buttons too small then it is hard for the user to press them. On MinePrime the sweetspot was 16 pixels there was enough on the screen and it could be interacted with easily.

Yeah true. That said even 16x16 is a bit small, as you don't see anything under your finger. For better precision it's better to use 32x32 or so, but sometimes that is not possible, especially for a tilemap game. In strategy games people just make the player select an area of the map and it selects all units in it.

Usually, the best for navigation is if it's possible to pinch-zoom in/out, though. But that doesn't look very professional if used inside a game.
