My family members consists of all right and left handlers and all prefer back button on the left.
Back button on the right is the worst decision a company like crappy Samsung can make when designing a phone.
Maz, 25 Jun 2016Samsung's buttons are the best I don't like on screens buttons because they take screen space ... moreAgree! I hate on-screen buttons. Can't seem to activate them when I really need them. Placing the touch-sensitive buttons below the screen is the best.
I wonder how many people use their phones with their non-master hand.

Don... moreI'm right-handed and I use my phone with my left hand because I like to keep my right hand free for more important stuff like grabbing onto the pole in a train or bus. So you don't speak for all right-handers.
My first thought when i saw the picture was, "whoa! What'll happen to amoled screens". Good to know that I'm not the only one... but as others keep saying, we would've already seen burn-in in our status bar. The Wi-Fi icon and the network icon would've have already shown signs of burn in. (Excluded battery and time cause they change frequently, even Wi-Fi and network also do but not as much as the former) so yeah maybe not so bad, but i like the present ones.

Okay so I just want to be clear here real quick for the couple of you down in the comments staying that AMOLED screens will have burn in if Google fills in the navigation buttons. Think about it; if our navigation buttons burned in, we would already have that issue today, but with just our current set-up. Or why doesn't the time in the top corner burn in? Because screens these days are great, and white doesn't generally burn in. It's mostly hard blue colours. So we can rest easy knowing that our screens are safe.
Am I the only one who has never used now on tap feature in s real case scenario ever..

So: maybe user experiences are different one from each other, aren't they?
Robin Waren, 25 Jun 2016Samsung has the worst navigational buttons of all smartphone! Such a loser company. Until th... moreIt's just positioning of buttons. Matter of getting used to lol. If you are so worked up by this i can only imagine what kind of world you live in.
Let the burnin begin on a Amoled! (Samsung not counted, they dont have on screen Buttons)
I had HTC and now Sony. They both have the back button on the left side, like all the other Android phones. When I use my friend's Samsung, the back btn is on the right side. I can't tell you how confusing it is. One more reason not to choose Sammy. Plus I HATE having to press the home button instead of just touching it. Physical buttons are so 2010. I don't care if it has fingerprint scanner or not, I dont like having buttons on my phone. On-screen buttons are the best, not to mention you can customize them :D
