at least the front buttons are on this 435 still!
I will really miss my camera button when I -eventually- upgrade from my 520. Oh, and capacitive buttons as well. :( Hopefully our coming flagship will carry these two hardware features.
Great, still waiting ( patiently) for my next phone: Lumia 640.
