Samsung changed the touch screen of omnia, some have the old (I do ...) which is almost bad ! xD, some have the new, quite good, something comparable to iphone one (Not really as some might say ^^, but really responsive !^^)

Perhaps its related to the ROM version you're using??? I'm using Taril's DXHL3 ROM and my screen sensitivity is just like the one in the videos, and I bought my Omnia back in october 08. Before i switched to Taril's ROM, my screen wasn't as responsive and i could really tell the difference once I had switched, it was actually comparable to the iPhone/iPod Touch.

I never saw that samsung changed the screen.... I bought mine in august, and it's as sensitive as in the youtube vidz.

Where did you guys got that information ? If true, I might go in a shop and test new omnia to feel the difference, if any..

Guys I am really interested in this topic as the one (and only) thing I would change about my omnia is the screen sensitivity.

Using Sectors 6.5 rom and the sensitivity and accuracy is superb if I use a fingernail or a stylus.

But I get little or no response using my fingers ....

Are these new screens that much better?

I'm also interested in this topic because I was disappointed of my Omnia as it's sensitivity is not what I expect. I once tried my brother's HTC P3600 and I was impressed by the touch sensitivity. Should Samsung Support change my screen for FREE as it is still under warranty?

Anyone tried it ?

Your ROM is fine since it's the latest official available. There are some tricks to improve the sensitivity but if you have the old touch, there's nothing more you can do.

I never saw that samsung changed the screen.... I bought mine in august, and it's as sensitive as in the youtube vidz.

I can garantee you that here in Italy if your Omnia has touch problems you just go in a Samsung service centre and they replace your old touch panel completely free if the phone is under warranty. So many people did it successfully and they couldn't believe to the difference with the new touch screen: no pressure and no need for nails !!!

But if your sensitivity is quite good now, maybe they won't change it. There's not really a way to find out if you have the old or the new touch but there is something to try:

try to drag a Samsung widget with your pinkie just with a soft pressure. If you are not able to do it that means that you have the old touch screen. I am able to do it so i should have the better touch, but i would like to replace it with the black one that is so cool! That's why i started this topic: wanted to know if anybody replaced it yet, the black touch is cheap on ebay.

im not sure about other roms or if tarils is the best sensitivity?? all i do know is that taril stated that in his custom DXHL3 rom, he had put in some new codes or drivers or sumthing (forgot what it is exactly B)) that makes the screen a bit more sensitive, and i really felt the difference when i switched.. especially when i was flicking and scrolling thru pictures in the media album. Prior to tarils rom i was using PaSSoA's custom DXHK1 manilla 2d rom.

yep that's the trick i was talking before, it's based on some registry values to change. The new touch will still be better than that.

in fact, it's not the new LCD, it's only TSP (Touch Sensing Panel). B)

Sure but you said:

here in Italy if your Omnia has touch problems you just go in a Samsung service centre and they replace your old touch panel

so that's normal those people see a difference with the new touch screen if they had problems before...

so I believe there is no new screen, but some omnia with problems.

Mine needs more pressure on the right side of the screen :(

But the sensitivity is good enough on the rest... since I removed the invisible shield B)

It appears to be a revisited version of the touchscreen, the first Omnia releases (for example July 2008) have this old touch. All the most recent like Omnia Reloaded mount the new one (more sensitive and needs less pressure). That's it :(
