ITLT: Power/Home Button Placement

Power button

Turning on a device should be easy and simple and shouldn’t take a lot of effort. Physical buttons are the best: giving you tactile and instant feedback.

Devices with physical home buttons (e.g. iPhone / Samsung S series) are the ideal IMO while Nexus devices (e.g. Nexus 4 pictured above) force you to use ‘the claw’.
