Fucking Christ. Isn't this how every Gruber review goes? Post some shit, then spend the next 14 posts posting UPDATEs that his twitter pals point out is wrong? Then go on to post more shit about how what he MEANT was that "Apple is great because of X, even though I didn't say that."

How about a fucking hardware Back button? Pretty goddamn useful instead of reaching for the upper-left corner of the phone. It takes half a second to hold Volume Down to mute the phone. Or pull down Notifications shade and tap the speaker icon. I don't know why I need a toggle switch for that.

Was about to say the same thing - the back button is incredibly useful (and much more so than a mute button). Being as Apple seems willing to copy everything and anything from Android they can get away with, why not that?

"which hardware buttons were necessary for the modern smartphone: home, power, volume up/down, and mute"

Two of those are not necessary and just shows how much of a bias Grubs has to just believe that since Apple put those on their phones, they are simply THE necessary buttons.

You know what is fucking useful and brilliant? The fucking HOME BUTTON.

Fuck the iPhone X.
