LG probably did their calculations of that area and came with the conclusion that the physical keys would have likely occupied that same space! As you can see all apps in the picture occupy the space just like any 5" android device with physical keys

What would you like them to do? Go back to the number keys so you need to press the same key 3-4 times to get the letter you want in an SMS message? QWERTY Keyboards? They're still out there (Nokia, BBerry). Maybe a different shape? How about a triangle, I'm sure that will fit well in your pocket.

Please tell what creative, innovative idea(s) you have to make these phones exciting.

So unless samsung markets anything, sammy fanboys are deaf and dumb people who just throw their money for this ads ... They even feel android features are implemented by samsung coz they never used any other android phone.

However, that still doesn't change the fact that LG's designers changed the navigation bar merely to be different from the standard Nexus, Motorola, Sony and Huawei devices. It's a change for the sake of it, one which doesn't really add functionality.

Also, my comment has correct capitalization and punctuation, which yours lacks.

Again, if this was the on screen key design on the galaxy S4 the sammy fan boys would have called this "revolutionary design"

in the first picture , the title is "Select apps to hide" so it means that user can hide some applications from the drawer
