    Gestures ? You mean throwing your phone away to close a chrome tab ?
  • 2
    @AleCx04 they probably "asked" (read heard) via the "Okay Google" feature

    I guess it's the mix - the most apps simply do not have good gesture support.

    And I would say the mist people simply do not have a modern Android version where they could have replace the three buttons system wide (if that's possible now, I'm still stuck with Android 8).

    Do you remember all those websites where you can navigate when you swipe left or right? In FF mobile (I didn't test in Chrome) this is highly annoying as trigger during scrolling.

    Unfortunately I'm not sure what Google does exactly compare here.

    @sbiewald the (lack of) support is a growing pain that can and will be overcome. It's already such a shit fest when it comes to support and dead apps, this ain't gonna end the world

    I haven't used the three buttons on a consistent basis since the Pie beta and I have 0 intentions of ever going back.

    Plus people are gonna whine whenever you make any big change to their phone, even if it's for the better. $20 says a large amount of the people they asked didn't even try the gestures for a whole day before making this conclusion. It took me about a day and a half before I got the first set of gestures with the pill and back button down, and about 3 hours with the Android Q gestures.

    Fuk gestures

    Since I got my pocophone I run full screen so without buttons and gestures enabled it was amazing till my screen protector came that only covers 98% of the screen so left and right swipes were Harder. Then my case came which fits top and bottom perfect but extrudes a bit so I have to cramp my finger rly hard in the bottom between case and screen to properly Tigger the gestures. So it's barley working for me and I wish there would be a setting to change the area of detection. I'll keep using it but only because it look 10xbetter and on screen buttons aren Hassel free either.

    I hate gestures... Suddenly "No don't go back! No don't reload the fucking page!"

    Hug gestures. I hate to whenever I have to fiddle instead of being able to just press a button. I hate those hugging things.

    @theKarlisK @jespersh I pressed more buttons that I didn't want to than I have fucked up gestures.

    @theKarlisK Following Linux kernel code of conduct, I see

    @Stuxnet and I have pressed wrong buttons less than I have triggered gestures and ended up pressing the wrong touch button because of that.

    @kescherRant It's the law after all...

    Gusteres limit functionality. There can be only few gestures that can be implemented on a screen.

    I prefer buttons for something basic like this.

    Gestures suck tho. Keep the buttons

    @Stuxnet I’m not investing 3 hours in learning some shit obsolete in 6 month.
    Give me back 3 physical buttons

    @NoToJavaScript having shitty taste in technology must suck lol

    It really isn't that hard but sure man keep using your antiquated method.

    @Stuxnet breaking muscle memory habits can be a bitch, especially once you start remembering theres a difference between the new one and all the others it takes even longer to go back to using the one like the others.

    And knowing google they very well could be just taking data, anonymous or otherwise, from the users phone and just looking a which one the seem to be committed to trying first, whether theyre still pressing at where the buttons where or whether they're automatically going straight to guestires or whatever the case may be.

    Thats not being paranoid about privacy, thats just expecting google to be google. They spend more time on their data mining algorithms than they do their user apps.
  • 4
    @Stuxnet LOL.
    1. Physical button will always be faster than gestures.
    2. Gestures may break on damaged screen
    3. Most of them are NOT “good” and requires learning
    Sure man, keep using your shitty unstable technology
  • 2
    @NoToJavaScript yikes it was a shit post dude damn

    Use whatever the fuck you want I genuinely don't care. But ffs the people that bitch about millisecond delays are lame lol

    Besides, it's not like many Android users will even get gestures due to things like Samsung does everything in their power to make that shitty skin not look like Android or shitty companies not providing updates or it taking a year before they do update.
  • 1
    @Stuxnet Well, Android is a shitty OS to begin with. Unfortunately, there is no alternative. (iOS is cool, polished and stable, but a bit too restrictive for me).
    And google being google : Why the fuck they activate by default the “Google Spyware (aka assistant)” in always listen mode each fucking update

    @NoToJavaScript ios in unintuitive mess. to use it you need to "think different"(tm)
  • 1
    @irene Don’t forget you need to hold your phone a certain (“right™”) way
  • 1
    @irene how is pressing buttons on a touch screen that much different on ios to Android?

    You're a smart dude, pretty sure you can figure ios out just as well as android

    @AleCx04 tried testing iphone in office. And yes it's an unintuitive mess.
  • 0
    @irene As if Android is “intuitive”. Fuck it, I’ll use HarmonyOS when available
  • 2
    @NoToJavaScript take some human who never used smartphones. Give a regular android anf an iphone. check progress. i bet they won't be able to use iphone as easily as android.
  • 0
    @irene damn. To you. I see the same shit on all phone systems and certainly see a lot of toddlers doing it as well
  • 0
    @irene I’m 5 months into using Android (Lumia 950XL before) : I still didn’t find how to display batterie % in all time. (Well, I never looked more than 30 secs for it also). So intuitive? nop. Settings are a hot mess where things are not even in “right” categories.
    Preinstalled crap I can’t remove. (No, I don’t need to root my phone)
  • 1
    I disagree. I am currently using Fluid NG- no three buttons, no gesture pill.
  • 0
    @irene u not wrong per say but android and windows are unintuitive messes if your used to osx and ios. even linux to an extent, until someone else develops a multitouch track pad for linux, osx will forever be my default for general use, whether i use a linux system for development or not
  • 2
    @Stuxnet u realize your like in the minority here about the gestures huh? That would make the article you were ranting about seem correct, most users do like the buttons better than the gestures, you and google just seems to think y'all know better and that the preference is only becaise of what people are used to.

    Still the argument could probably be made that the only people theyre going to attract with this move are the people that have long preferred ios over droid. The ppl on droid now will most likely be resistant to the change because the buttons are probably something they already made their mind up about preferring compared to what apple has been bringing to the table.

    Just speculation tho, i dont use droid because it was too different of an interface and i couldnt get used to it

    @M1sf3t Like 15 nerds on the internet doesn't represent the majority of Android users but aight
  • 1
    @M1sf3t I've noticed people in this community have shit taste it seems.

    I mean damn look how popular nix is here. 🤮

    Nah but like the average Android user probably likes it more and are more open to trying something than the closed minded people in this community.
  • 1
    @M1sf3t btw, i've used osx for a bit as well. didn't like it as well. i've used windows and linux and it was nicer than using osx which was just... odd.
  • 3
    I really believe that people in this community need to find the difference between
    "This is bad"
    And
    "I did not like it, i thought it was bad"

    For a looooot of things. Adding the "i think.." would normally eliminate pointless arguments and would help pinpoint opinionated nerds with no life.
  • 2
    @irene finally, someone says this

    It really IS an unintuitive mess.

    I mean, i think it's an unintuitive mess. But that is only my opinion

    I miss having a navbar that would hide itself when playing games or watching full-screen video. That was ideal. Then Android updated and I had to choose between always-visible navbar or gestures. I chose gestures and it took weeks to get used to it and I still sometimes do the wrong thing.
  • 1
    @jespersh I hate gestures for exactly the same reason
  • 2
    @milkygreen the one I hate the most, is if you drag a finger from the very edge left center and down in Chrome, then it registers it as a page reload instead of dragging the page.
    And you sometimes have to drag near the edge of the screen because of some iframe or ads that wouldn't let you continue.

    @EmberQuill I have hardware buttons 😐

    @irene I wish I still had a hardware Home button

    Fuck gestures and the shitty 3-buttons overlay.
    Let me keep my hardware buttons and I'm happy.

    Gestures are fucking horse shit. Scrolling a page and BOOM it closes because some brain dead retarded withered flower decided a swipe up motion is the perfect queue to close an application. Three navigation buttons for life

    @PrivateGER BUT MAH BEZELS!!!

    @RemyRm who the fuck scrolls at the bottom of a webpage? Seems to me like something a brain dead retarded withered flower would do if ya ask me. /s

    @PrivateGER I've genuinely never heard someone want physical buttons but it honestly doesn't surprise me that this community likes them. Must be a shit ton of people that like to make their lives harder. /s

    The back gesture is much faster and easier than having to break your thumb and unergonimcally reach down to the very bottom of the device. A quick swipe from the side of the display (where your thumb naturally rests anyway) is just better. Don't @ me
  • 1
    @12bitfloat Shhh logic bad!
  • 2
    @12bitfloat my thumb does not ever rest on any side of the display, but in-between and reaching for either side would be even more uncomfortable than reaching for a "back" button. Try again.
  • 1
    @irene When holding a smartphone your thumb normally rests on the side of the device where the power button is, no? So you just have to move it about a centimeter to do the back gesture
  • 1
    @12bitfloat no it does not 🤔
  • 1
    @irene Where does it rest?
  • 0
    @12bitfloat said already.
  • 0
    @irene Okay, didn't read that part. Reaching the side of the display is still easier than the bottom of the device though when your thumb is in the middle of the display
  • 2
    @12bitfloat Some of us have freaky anatomy and/or missing digits but personally speaking, my thumb is unable to touch my phone screen while I'm holding it
  • 1
    @milkygreen It might just be how I hold my smartphone because it's extremely heavy and quite large

    On my Mi8 I use (obviously) Miui10 and the gestures work great.
    Well, there are just 4. But I really enjoy them and I don't miss the buttons on the screen that just waste space on my screen. Even on a 6.2 inch display I hate the lost space the buttons would take...
  • 1
    @Emphiliis that seems like it's pretty close to the gestures in Q
  • 3
    @Emphiliis gestures from left side are just against anatomy. Have they seen the size of the modern devices?
  • 1
    @irene well, I can use both edges, does that fix the issue? :D
