All gone to history like 3,5mm headphone jack finaly.
Samsug curved screens and Apple Notch could follow.
I wont be happier to see this new horrible trend seen a final end.

Though you might be talking about hardware buttons like the home and back button. They're super useful as well.

Rotate camera, you missed the Hand Camera Nokia N90.
Oh wow, I'd love a mini/micro HDMI port on a phone these days.
I do miss the days when phones had unique features about them. It's all pretty much the same these days.

I also like the new Nokia line, I love the build quality. Samsung and LG are OK, but other OEMs all make same boring designs.

In 2010 Nokia release N8 with 720p video recording and even Dolby sound recording. That was ahead of any other smartphone maker. Not to mention that this phone had xenon flash, FM transmitter, SD card, blue tooth capabilities to attach mouse and keyboard plus HDMI port. It was like a pocket PC. With 256MB RAM plus 16GB ROM. Not to mention that symbian was true multitasking OS without needs for high amount of RAM as Android or iOS.
After that Nokia release 808, then 1020. Even before that noons can match Nokia in camera quality. There were slight attempt from Sony, but Nokia was camera king at least till 2013 when 1020 was released.
So stop spreading lies.
Nokia was too proud and fat to response in time to iPhone. Symbian was limited. Elop killed meego. He was the troyan whose to sell Nokia to Microsoft. He was responsible, together with Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo, to ruin Nokia mobile decision. Kallasvuo was too proud and didn't saw the potential of iPhone, Elop killed last of Nokia.
2012 was a great year. When iPhone 5 came out later that year with a stunning body everyone jump to the be-like-iPhone bandwagon
What about infra red capability? I own a Galaxy Note 4... there's hardly any new phones with an infra red feature.
Cell phones have been cooler. There were several formats, different features. Today they are more advanced, but they are all very similar. I remember the LG Black Label series, the Sony Cyber ​​Shot models, Nokia N series ... Man, I really miss those times!
Oh yeah in my last post I totally forgot about camera shutter key. It is barely on any smartphone today, and it is very useful if you ask me. Also, IR blaster. I never used it to be honest, because I never had one on a phone, but it can come in handy. Also, front facing stereo speakers on HTC and Sony phones, and dedicated buttons for controlling music on older Nokia phones. I mean, there are still phones with stereo speakers, but only some are really front facing, and those slide out buttons for music controls were useful.
