I like that HTC reduced the number of buttons and made them smaller. They are still big enough to hit easily, but aren't hugging the corners like Samsung or LG phones, which are very easily to press by accident. Less buttons also means less accidents. One of the great things about the iPhone's single home button is that you always know where it is and its easy to press without looking for it. Press once for home, double press for recent apps, press again on home to go to first page or go to search, hold for Siri. It's easier for me than having to remember the constantly changing button order on phones, having to distinguish between them, or pressing the wrong one by accident. HTC is simplifying the buttons for the better. I also like the HTC logo in between the two buttons.
