Samsung to keep the physical home button on the Galaxy S IV - read the full textAccording to recent reports in South Korean newspaper Korean daily, Samsung has decided to keep the physical Home button for its Galaxy S IV upcoming flagship. If the reports are true, this means that Samsung will indeed keep the two capacitive buttons (back and menu) on the both sides of the home...

I like to be able to use the physical home-button to wake up the phone, and I do not like having capacitive buttons on the screen because they waste too much of the 1080p screen, it is much better to have the capacitive button below the actual 1080p screen! That is why I like Samsung-phones but do not like Sony-phones!

A phone is a phone, i dont see why they r ugly or pretty. Since more people buy samsung phones, then obviously most people care about what the phone can do rather then just a nice design...or maybe samsung phones are not ugly, but only ugly to u and haters.

If you want a glass phone then dont buy the s4. But if you like this design then go for it.. just dont talk trash about this phone... all phones are different in design.. if you like Lg go for it and if you like apple then buy it or Sony...

Acually sometime an app crashes and my SGS3 freezes and i need to use the physical home button to go back to home screen,, with my brothers LG 4X HD he can't do that because his home button is a capacitive one, meaning that it also freezes and he must restart the phone!
i only wish they make it a taracking pad with direction, this helps alot for scrolling or pressing on links while reading!

As long as it has a removable battery & a microSD slot, I'm buying it.

@Samsung haters
Your phone most probably has at least one Samsung part in it.
