I use both. My phone is more finger friendly. it's cool if I drag with my fingers it scrolls and if I drag with the stylus it selects, it knows if I am using fingers or a stylus, I don't know how but it does.

If I feel like only using one hand I won't use a stylus, but I can get more done faster using two hands and a stylus.

You use the HTC Touch, right? I didn't know HTC did that, but it's an interesting technique. They might be able to detect how large a screen area is being touched. A finger probably activates a larger area than a stylus does.

I use my fingers most of the time on my Omnia, but sometimes use the stylus just because it's faster if I'm doing a lot of work on my phone.
