Acrylic screen protection

Tue Oct 27, 2015 2:03 pm

Hi If i use a 2mm sheet of Acrylic to protect the screen, will I be able to use the touch feature or will i completely eliminate that possibility?

Probably not. Do you have a small piece you could lay on the screen and see if a touch registers. I doubt it will, the RPF screen seems to need about 3/16" (~4.7mm) contact area on the screen to register, I don't think you'll have enough conductive interaction being 2mm off the screen.

I dont have the screen yet and now wondering if I should get it. People are saying stuff like its upside down in the case, slides around, touch feature stops working and its not supported by all operating systems. Should I get it or not?
