    I looked at some of the articles and it looks interesting not crazy about the notch examples though gaun more screen space to end up with notches 1 step forward 1 step back
    I never have a problem with screen space on Z2 force and it has a physical button
    They should sell phones with and without the button to satisfy everyone #bringbackthebutton

    The swipe gestures look ok and necessary if you don't have buttons even though they will have virtual ones

    Didn't see anything that looked like it was a must have feature besides possibly improved battery life

    I suppose I could live without buttons, epecially if they are more contextually aware. Except I'm very used to the physical buttons, however I have shortcuts on the bottom of my screen I use to jump to other homescreens and navigate, so the software buttons would get in the way.

    I have 0 interest in using gestures and swiping left/right or swiping with multiple fingers to navigate. Does not work well with how I set-up my phone.
