Are you gonna use Samsung's gestures or the more traditional nav bar? I'm currently using gestures on my XS Max, but the nav bar on my HTC U12+ because it hasn't gotten Pie yet. Curious to see everybody's preference.

I like the buttons but currently have a Xs Max so might try the gestures. I frequently used the double tap to switch between the last used app when I had the S8+.

I'm gonna try the gestures as well. I know they're not the same as iOS's implementation, but I prefer it to the nav bar.

I have an s8 plus, but I use gestures because they allow for more screen space. once you get used to them, its essentially the same thing as having the nav bar.

I started using the gestures on S10+ and son't even think about the buttons anymore so will stick with them.

I use gestures on my phone, but nav on my Tab S4. The tab feels too big to gesture imo. Not sure what I'll use on 10+. Gotta see how it feels in the hands. 😉

gestures for sure, I've been using then for about 6 months now and I am used to them as opposed to the nav bar, looks cleaner in my opinion

I've been using gestures on my Note 9 and S10+ and I really like them more than nav buttons. I like utilizing all of the screen real estate. So I'll definitely use them on my Note 10+ whenever T-Mobile gets around to shipping my device.

I prefer the Navigation Bar to gestures. Creature of habit I submit.

I also use Goodlock to add my own take on the symbols used in the Nav Bar.

I used goodlock to do the same until I started using the gestures and now when I enable the nav bar I'm confused as to what I out on the nav bar hahaha

I will most likely turn gestures off until I get the phone setup and learn a bit about it. Over the weekend, I was setting up a new tablet and the gestures was driving me up the wall. I kept unintentionally turn features and apps on/off. after messing up setting up the fingerprint scan the fifth time, I gave up and turn the gestures off.
