Well, not really hard to hit in the classic sense—causing people to avoid them—but are more difficult to hit accurately, take more time to hit accurately, and cause users to have reduced confidence in their ability to hit them accurately. It turns out that users actually realize they are bad at targeting the edges of the screen.

And I do mean edges.
