    Ok:

    The ICS phones have been showcased, and all of them, except the GNex, have some sort of capacitive buttons. Why? If Google has clearly made it so your phone does not need them, why do manufacturers still insist on putting capacitive buttons on phones? Many of us complain about it, and it seems silly, but honestly, I don't want to look at capacitive buttons anyone. Theres no need for them anymore, and they're pretty freaking ugly. They look so outdated. Each phone with those stupid things makes me think of the Droid 1. Also, there's no consistancy between manufacturers. HTC lines them up a offering way than Samsung and Moto.

    What's the deal? Is it a manufacturer thing or is it a carrier thing? Its no surprise the US Galaxy S2 and the Note look different from the European model. They don't have the physical home button and have the stupid capacitive buttons lined up in a row. Why the difference? Did someone somewhere do a study that Americans prefer this look? Does this mean the GS3 won't look like it does in Europe? Why? Why why why why why?!?! :mad:

    Give it some time android is still brand new and there has only been one phone built for ICS so far and thats the GNex. All tge other phones running ICS were released with gingerbread or previous and upgraded so there was a need for the buttons.

    im sure more phones without capacitive buttons are in the works but it takes time. And yes every manufacturer tries to differentiate themselves from the next so there will be some variances on the number and order of the buttons.
