1. A device for providing feedback, the device comprising:
a sensor configured to sense an input signal corresponding to an input; and
a controller configured to:
determine the input as at least one of a touch operation, a press operation, or a swipe operation based on the input signal; and
provide feedback corresponding to the determination result,
wherein the controller is configured to determine the input as the touch operation and provide first sound feedback, when the sensor senses a change in a quantity of electric charge at a single touch film resulted from a change in a contact region of the single touch film by the input,
wherein the single touch film has a plurality of first patterns and a plurality of second patterns different from the plurality of first patterns,
wherein the second pattern includes at least one or more longitudinal patterns formed by connecting a plurality of hexagonal patterns in direction of column and each longitudinal pattern is separated from each other, and
wherein the first pattern includes a plurality of patterns that fill a plurality of areas between the longitudinal patterns.
