The new Nokia Lumias, Nokia’s latest offerings to the smartphone world, can be used with gloves in the winter, unlike HTC‘s phones. This is thanks to a layer on the screen developed by the company Synaptics. In fact, HTC isn’t alone – many smartphones cannot be used with gloves.
Yesterday HTC Russia asked their followers on Twitter how they use a phone in the cold if they don’t want to take off their gloves. Nokia then replied saying that they can “quietly enjoy”, and attaching a picture of their Lumia 520.
If that wasn’t enough to frustrate HTC, Huawei also then joined in and posted a picture of their Ascend P6, which is also usable with gloves.
