    P.S hope its not just like back start and search button hope it changes varying in you application your in

    Me too . But the ideas of auto-hide the button while playing games or other stuff were great . I wish they will do something for the physical button . Like tapping back button twice will make the button off .

    I hate this implementation on android phones. It just doesn't look right to me.

    I hope that Nokia continues making them the way they are. It makes me feel a bit meh thinking of windows phone possibly developing an android feature.

    It's a nightmare ! People buy a Windows Phone because the don't want to stay with android ( or iOS ) , but this ? Google wins .

    More irritating is when the touch screen is unresponsive which include the onscreen buttons .

    I prefer the capacitive buttons. Don't really want the buttons taking up space on the screen. Kind of like the way they are on the nl 1520 and black out when the screen is not on.

    Looks like I'm the odd one out on this one. I don't see a problem as long as the screen is properly extended and the buttons don't eat into the already existing screen real estate, the capacitive buttons use the same digitizer as the touchscreen, the only difference is that they're not on screen graphics. So yes, if it's properly implemented like I stated above, I have no problem with this happening.

    the problem is that manufacturers don't do that. Your 4.5 inch screen is less than that due to the onscreen buttons.

    If they implemented it your way, I probably would have nonissue with that myself.
