Hell no !

If Samsung will start ditching the current setup of buttons, I'll ditch Samsung. I am pissed with knox and bloatware as it is now. No need to annoy the users furthermore.

Having a tablet with onscreen navigation bar, I hate that particular aspect like no tomorrow. So much screen estate wasted for nothing.

Yes, because you can also buy from Sony, LG or any other brand without hardware buttons, so you telling me to put with your preferences is the same as me asking you to put with mine (that I'm not doing as you have other options).

Who gave you the power to deem my choice invalid anyway? That's why we have choice and choice is good. The only thing I demand from OEM is they update the OS. After that they should target the market they see fit with the changes they see fit.

If you're that worried about buttons what you tell me of different apps, dialer, settings in each brand? That's also inconsistency. If you want to follow Google go get a Nexus and leave us with the phones we like.

Replacing menu with task switcher is very good move. I would love combo of capacitive home and physical home button. When screen is on, capacitive sensors over physical should be working. And when phone is locked, physically pressing home should wake the device. Having physical home gives one more convenient way to wake up phone.
