Abstract:
We present a study that quantifies the effect of cold temperature on smartphone input performance, particularly on tapping tasks. Our results show that smartphone input performance decreases when completing tapping tasks in cold temperatures. We show that colder temperature is associated with lower throughput and less accurate performance when using the phone in both one-handed and two-handed operations. We also demonstrate that colder temperature is related to higher error rate when using the phone in one-handed operation only, but not two-handed. Finally, we identify a number of design recommendations from the literature that can be considered as a countermeasure to poorer smartphone input performance in completing tapping tasks in cold temperature.
