Re: It's a great phone
Fully agree on hardware buttons.
They still work when a bit of your touch screen dies.
I had a "dead band" on a screen after phone got dropped (it was in a case so no "broken glass" but impact kinetic energy damage) and could still use the phone (rotating when necessaryto get around some of dead band, a bit of screen real estate could not be used but nothing 100% vital to phone use (just meant a couple of games unplayable that had fixed orientation so rotate workaround not possible) ), I would have been struggling a lot if that dead band had been where the on screen nav buttons were
Hardware buttons are good, as still liekly to work if software goes on the blink. I have zero confidence in software only nav bars, bound to go on the blink just when you need them
