What is the difference between the two??
Most capacitive screens are also multi-touch. A capacitive screen works by sensing the conductive properties of your fingertip and a resistive screen works by sensing pressure on the screen. If you try to operate a capacitive screen while wearing a glove, it won't respond whereas a resistive screen will. Multi-touch means you can operate the screen with more than one finger as in "pinching" to change font size etc.

Your explanation might be better than the entirety of the thread. Concise and clear
