Samsung and Apple are right to keep a single button on board to eliminate that. On the Lumia, it's hitting the capacitive search key by accident all the time that sucks.

This is how you make the best hardware suck. Android might be on top thanks to Samsung, but also thanks to them, most Android users aren't benefitting fully from it.

That's lame but not surprising since Samsung's design is going to the wrong direction lately, not to mention the material quality...

There way well have been a few advanced prototypes floating around, some with physical keys and others will all on screen navigation, just to test how things work in the real world. But I guess now Samsung have made the call, are finalizing the software and starting the test production runs.

i dont see why they should release an s4... the s3 is still good enough.. hell, even the s2 is still good enough.. s4 should have waited till 2014 at least.

Good to hear at least one other phone maker has sense. Capacitive buttons are annoying, too easy to accidentally press. All phone buttons should be physical ones :/
