The hardware button is simple, easy to find by touch and it has a fingerprint sensor. Good solution, methinks.

Samsung seem to think so, too :-))

windows phone! nokia! will be on top"

Goog joke, Nokia is dead in phones, WP is crap OS, too limited personalization options, too much control by MS, they growing at the expense of Symbian. If Nokia dont kill Symbian and MeeGo WP dont get even 1%...

if WP continues like this and puts on the OS the missing features compared to iphone and android it will become a serious opponent.

Nokia will be on top soon. They are too good to be on second place without android. I can't imagine the time that nokia will have android on their lineup. For sure they wil beat samsung and no other brands will stand against them! Nokia for the win!

On the other hand, some like keeping things tidy and/or organised I, for example like to keep photos on my SD card split into folders: one folder for dog pix, one for family, one for gf's naked pix :P, one for random stuff and so on here's where a file manager does wonders. This clears up the gallery view in android as well, for me at least but I might have OCD so disregarding some of my remarks seems like a good idea.

it rather stick to the most secure mobile OS right now.
