I replaced my cheapo Android smart phone (Galaxy Core Prime) with a newer cheapo Android smart phone (Alcatel OneTouch Flint).
Previous one had Adnroid 4.4.4 and this one has Marshmallow (6.x?) on it.

Now the buttons at the bottom are no longer exactly a part of the screen.
You can see an image of the device at: alcatel flint[^]
Shouldn't matter, right?

Cold Weather / Glove Test
It is cold here in this part of country today and I put my touch-enabled gloves on.

Home, Back, Task List Buttons
The gloves work perfectly well anywhere on the screen of the device but they will not work on the extended part of the screen/device where the home, back, task list buttons are.

I never would've suspected that. And, it is annoying.
It is slightly interesting too, from a physics / materials standpoint. But mostly, it is annoying.

Can anyone here explain this? I'm interested. Less conductive material? Material requires more surface touchpoints? ??

Straw Poll

When building an application, when is the most important time to consider the User Experience?
They are the ones we write code for, right?
