    In fairness, I'm pretty sure the iPhone has had 60FPS screens for sometime now.
    I'm pretty sure it doesn't. I tried searching from the internets and I always ended up to 30hz regarding to iphone5 screen. iOS supports it, and iPads have it. I didn't find a single reference about iPhone5 having 60hz screen refresh rate. A topic in some random youtube video with only 2 comments just doesn't cut it.

    I wanted to test no 2. and took my phone outside -15degrees celcius which is a lot colder, and left it out for 20 minutes. The phone was freezing cold. My standard leather gloves worked out of the box, and my thick woolen cap started working after about 5-7 seconds of swiping the screen. And after that both scrolling and selecting seemed to work flawlessly. I really must wonder if people have turned it 'on', or they don't know that it needs some time for the screen to adjust/calibrate to the touch. Either that, or Nokia has some serious quality issues. Since mine is working flawlessly.
    My experience was sitting on a chairlift in approximately 30 degree F. I took the phone out of my jacket pocket to show a friend how it worked. I started by holding a gloved finger on the screen for about 5 seconds and then tried to swipe the lock screen open. No response. I held my gloved finger on the screen again, this time for 10 seconds. Again, no response.

    I have been able to get it to work in warmer temps, but I couldn't make it work in this instance. Maybe it had something to do with the wind from riding the chairlift?

    And yes, I did have it turned on.

    On what phone DOES it work better than the 920? I can only compare it to my old iphone 4 which simply would not, in any way, even acknowledge that anything was touching the screen unless it was the actual skin of my finger.

    That I can put on gloves and use the phone is quite remarkable actually to me.
    I remember seeing a funny picture of a bunch of Japanese commuters on a train using sausages to type on their iPhones xD

    All or some things Apple will add to their next iPhone and claim they did it first. Then all the fanboys will eat it up.
    they're already trying to patent wireless charging, albeit on a larger scale. "charging your phone in pocket while walking around the office"
