I would not like the soft buttons
I would like to see more phones with soft buttons actually. They work flawlessly (@Jeff Denver). They are there when you need them and disappear when you don't need them to expand your screen size. Basically the only way the nexus is able to rock a 4.65" screen and still be the same size as a razr is due to the soft buttons. Idk just my .02
Yea, the software buttons are just hell on earth! Not. I don't even notice the difference..
Looking at the front of the case, there is plenty of room for hard buttons IMO. If they are software based, they will be subject to the same limitations as any other controls on screen. They do NOT appear instantly between screen transitions. I saw this myself when I used it.
They appear fast enough right now, but if the system was to lag (for whatever reason) those controls would lag with it.
I really like the capacative buttons i have big fingers hence buying the droid 4 cause i hate touchscreen typing and i do a ton of emails. the capacative buttons dont cause me to have miss hits things like that. they are a bit bigger and spread out... and they are always there so i can do alot of things with out looking, not to say eventually if i was used to the gnex i couldnt. I am def not speaking poorly about the gnex i think it is a good phone slightly over rated hardware wise but very very solid performer.
@ jeff..I hear what you are saying but its just not like that trust me I own the device and owned 4 motos prior so if anything I'm a MOTO fan boy.
Soft buttons its just more comfortable ^…^

It is one of those things that seems like a good idea on paper but doesn't work as well in real life. I have actually used a Nexus, and more than once. IMO, it adds nothing to the experience and actually makes the phone harder to use. It has some aesthetic appeal, but thats it. I don't think most people (especially non-nerds) will want to sacrifice the screen real estate and functionality for the Aesthetics. I predict this is something that will stay only on the Nexus.
A lack of hardware navigation is something that always annoyed me about the iPhone...I do not want to see that standard adopted by Android as well.
