Has anyone noticed these problems with the HTC1? I haven't gotten to see one in person so I was just curious.
While I do wish the capacitive buttons were removed and that they adopted the virtual buttons instead, I can't say I've had a problem accidentally pushing the buttons while watching videos in landscape. Of course I've accidentally hit them once in the beginning but generally I don't hold the phone on the bezel but instead on the edges as I just have a better grip.
The button lights do stay on during video playback though, so that might still annoy you.
I do really wish they added haptic feedback to the buttons as I find it would make it FAR easier and less frustrating in wondering if you did in fact push the button or not. Particularly in using the 'double- tap' home button to access running apps. Just something I'm hoping they will add in a future software update.
