How do folks feel about a physical home button?

I'm trying to tell myself it's not a big deal, but I think I may have a preference for capacitive buttons or on-screen buttons like the Gnex has.

I like it. I think it'll be nice to have something that will responsive the vast majority of the time. I have the Skyrocket and there are times that I get no response no matter how many times I touch the capactive buttons.

One home button should be standard, just like a volume rocker. It can be the thinnest, most discrete thing ever, but it should be there. :)

stated numerous times, prefer it. That way, 3 yr old won't close netflix so easily on car trips. Have to use wife's iPhone every time because one of her fingers inevitably hit one of the capacitive buttons to close it.

I think I'll like it coming from BB because it would be annoying to have to hit the side button to light up the screen everytime imo

I found it a bit of a challenge to orientate my GSII when I first got it...I'd go to pick it up and a lot of times it would be upside down because there wasn't button on either end of it to differentiate it. Kind of annoying, but I got use to it.

I prefer to have a physical button, but at the same time I know physical buttons come with a risk of them wearing out. But I like the idea of having a physical home button again :)

I love it. Glad a US phone finally kept it. Hope it doesn't press in my pocket all the time keeping my screen on.

I prefer capacitive but frankly don't care at this point :), just happy the phone wasn't delayed 6mo in the US.
