The Buttons

We're all thinking about our next phone, because that what Android fans tend to do. We know we want lots of cores, tons of RAM, lots of storage, and all the other bells and whistles that go along with. Tonight, let's talk buttons.

There's three ways to go here. Old school physical buttons, capacitive buttons, and with ICS, on-screen buttons. Each have their strengths and their weaknesses. And we can't forget the issues apps that haven't been updated have with real buttons, with that black bar and three dots hanging out there. Of course, there are fans of each kind, and we wouldn't want it any other way. We embrace the idea that there's different strokes for different folks, and glad that Android offers that choice.

So what kind of buttons do you prefer? I wish I could find a phone with a mix of physical buttons (a dedicated button to answer the phone works well for me) and capacitive buttons. Since that isn't going to happen, I'd have to pick a good set of capacitive buttons. What about you guys? Let us know in the poll!
