Default If the buttons are not physical and are...

If the buttons are not physical and are part of the screen then i bet were still looking at qHD screen specs. The rest of the resolution will be used up by the pseudo buttons.

No, they have nothing to do with the resolution of the LCD and are not part of the "screen."

There are several parts in play here. The LCD (that's where resolution comes in) display. It stops where the black part of the frame starts.
The "Buttons" are really just painted areas of the frame where the black paint is replaced with a White paint so that the backlight can shine through.

The "buttons" work because the "DIGITIZER" (The actual "Touch screen" part) extends down past the LCD display and over them to detect when you touch those areas.

So, no, we are not looking at qHD screen specs.

This was meant for the Nexus Prime with its 1280x720 screen.

Yep explains the confusion. So I have moved your thread to the correct area.

Not understanding a single thing about the comments didn't tip me off that there was something up.

Is that bad?

After all the Bs in the speculation thread, I think we can give you one "pass"

Sorry if this is a dumb question...

I've only really played around an iPhone 4 (my boyfriend's) and when it goes into "idle" or "standby" the screen goes black. Then I push the button at the bottom to unlock and use it again.

How would a no-button phone like the Nexus Prime work? Would the phone be searching for touch-cues from the user? And would that possibly drain the battery faster during idle/standby?

Apologies for being a ditz

It will have buttons on the side to unlock(wake) it and for volume. The "no buttons" referenced here refer to the face of the phone having no physical or capacitive buttons..
