I have a hunch that the M7 will be updated to Sense 6 and that the capacitive buttons are going to be turned off and moved up to the screen with a layout like the M8. Any takers?

That's not going to happen. Why disable hardware buttons?

no.


the on-screen buttons on the m8 were a mistake as long as they keep the black bezel underneath the screen - they are a complete waste of screen space.

The bezel is still used for the digitizer, regardless of whether or not it's part of the screen

I'm using Sense 6 and the capacitive buttons don't work in bright light. Then I noticed they were working this evening while my wife was playing Candy Crush

Yeah, its been ported for the M7. I think someone leaked the system dump from the M8 and voila. I just bought the M7 two months ago and my friend that works at Best Buy showed me the store model...I was not that impressed.
