HTC keeps effing up with the button layout, why not go with on screen buttons?

Tip us?

To solve this losing work space complain, they could make made a phone with 5" screen like the butterfly and still get 4.8" real state .

OK some of you don't like on screen buttons but are you actually saying you prefer to not have a multitasking button ?

There is a multitask button my friend, you just double tap the home button and you get a slicker cleaner multitasking UI.

No issue with multitasking. My real issue is how would we deal with games or apps that utilizes full screen window and requires the menu button. I don't think that 3dot menu would be available on games

And the survey says.... It's clear that a small teeny tiny group of people actually feel like those on screen buttons that clearly take up real estate are some how cool or useful lol, low the person who started this forum Ctfu... Good day everyone

I couldn't care less about the missing button. All of the functionality is there. 1 day and you used to it. And from what i have seen, the double tap is extremely responsive.

One reason I like capacitive buttons a lot is the posibility to use S2W.
When I have the phone on the table I use this all of the time with HOX+

No posibility to do this with on screen buttons.

You get an on-screen bar containing a 3 dots menu

For the last time: you can DISABLE THIS BAR by enabling long-press back for menu on the One.

I would much rather have a three button layout (the third one being a dedicated menu button), but this two button layout isn't preventing me from buying it in anyway.

I don't think it will take more than a day to get used to it!
