Default Resistive Touchscreen

Hi guys,

I'm looking to purchase a new MP3 player and, out of goodwill for Creative, I'd like it to be the ZEN X-Fi2. I am, however, troubled by the resistive touchscreen which I find to be difficult to use. I understand that it's a hardware issue, but has the community found a way to make the touchscreen more sensitive and responsive? Have there been any development since release that might nullify my concerns?

That's a good review I found on it that shows exactly how the device is. The screen is actually very responsive to have resistive touch.

Creative does have a board so hopefully you can find updates and everything for it there.

The touch screen can be hard to use at first but it gets easier as time goes on, my only major problem with it is that it can be a bit sensitive at times, for example, sometimes I can't raise the volume without blowing up my eardrums. lol other than that I don't see much of a problem with it.

I've not had too much problem with the screen either, and more recent firmware seems to have made the volume control a little easier to use for instance.

There is a built-in feature to re-calibrate the screen which can help sometimes if you get problems with getting the right menu items and so on.

The "swipe" I find has to be done as: press, hold a moment, then swipe.

Also, in general, I find it easiest to use a fingernail or the back end of a pen rather than the end of my finger. (Maybe I've just got fat digits...)
