The world is moving towards gestures. How do you feel about that?
Last year, Apple introduced the iPhone X, doing away with the iconic home button, Touch ID, and introducing a new set of gestures for navigating iOS. These have now also traveled over to iPads, as the new iPad Pro models also have no home buttons.

On the Android side of things, gestures are becoming more prominent as well. It was an expected evolution, since manufacturers pretty much want to kill off bezels and there's barely any room for buttons left. Even Google redesigned the navigation bar in Android Pie to be much more swipe-based.

So, gestures are the future, capacitive buttons are all but dead, and hardware home keys are becoming a rare sight. How do you feel about this change? Do you embrace it or loathe it as you grip you Galaxy S7 tight and refuse to let go?

Gestures are the future. How do you feel about that?

I love gestures!
I am indifferent. Either way, as long as it works, is fine
No...! Bring back my buttons!
