why all the negativity for onscreen buttons. there is only a positive change happening.
the old buttons that re etched into the touch panel work in exactly the same way as the onscreen buttons (you are still just touching the screen).
the other benefits to this is your phone looks nicer when its off (as the buttons go black). Also when its on those buttons can be customised by apps to have many different functions and icon if needed, so you et better usability.
so what are the downsides (apart from the fact that Samsung/apple didn't get there first, but will probably soon copy)
Jarret, 08 Aug 2014Back Camera still 6.7 MP? Why not 8 - 13 MP? Sad NokiaWell that 6.7mp of 720 is better than 8mp cameras of androids n Lumia 820
PhoneNerd, 08 Aug 2014I was blown away when I tested Android for the very first time back on 2010. And this happened... moreI agree that s4 n m8 r really fast...but u shld understand that they have top chipsets.well s4 gets laggy sometimes. No android phone below 15k will run smooth after 2 months but wp phone's will still after a year minimum
Lagdroid Trolls...Get a Life...Even rickshaw/taxi driver,sweeper, home servant and fruit seller like persons have a bugdroid i.e so common and cheap looking. Uggghhh. At least be status conscious,stand out and classy and go for a Nokia LUMIA...the next "big" and "in" thing. Besides the Lumia 630 being a budget phone has sensorcore/motion tracking w.r.t fitness apps. What more can a Jogging guy can ask for? Most importantly the after sales services is just too good w.r.t Nokia Phones.Loving my Nokia Lumia 630 in Orange.
Dave Granger, 08 Aug 2014On-screen buttons should just crawl into a corner and die.LOL

There's absolutely no reason and that doesn't make any sense. And Android pretty much runs the smartphone markets - WP isn't going to catch up anytime soon, maybe in the next decade they are even if it's even alive then.
Phonenerd (read Troll) is so much super jealous of WP rising popularity that he just can't stop his hate speech against it.The fact is that WP is much smooth, virus free,secure and miles better than lag droid. WP is the Future. Besides HTC One M8 is the ugliest phone around hands down while all Nokia Lumia Phones and HTC 8X scream BEAUTY.
OMGush, 08 Aug 2014Damn! On screen buttons. :( Its will be Cool..ma Man

Ulhaqpak, 08 Aug 2014Windows isn't about testing in stores....Android is the best and nicer to use with factory set... moreI'm using my android phone from last 2.5years still works smoothly... flawless and lag free.
Ulhaqpak, 08 Aug 2014Windows isn't about testing in stores....Android is the best and nicer to use with factory set... moreI was blown away when I tested Android for the very first time back on 2010. And this happened in a phone store. If the WP OS can't do the same first impression, it's not for me. And so far it has proven to be true after these 4 years of Android usage, it's still the best OS for me. My ex-phone (S4) is still lag-free and it has a lots of games installed (GTA 3, SA for example). The same thing with my M8: the fastest phone I've _ever_ used.
