No - good god no! It's one of THE best features about the physical aspect of the iPhone. I've had both Windows and Android works phones and when the silly little three icons are on the bottom of the screen, I've lost count of how many times I press those instead of the bloody space bar.Most rumours at the moment are pointing towards a glass casing with aluminium frame like the 4/5, with OLED screen (although potentially on the plus only) and face/eye recognition.
The newest rumour that has come out is regarding the screen size, and that the size of the phone will stay the same but the screen size will increase, reducing the size of the bezels, as well as a potential deletion of the home button and have virtual buttons at the bottom of the phone.
Same here. I've gone from Android to Apple as the I didn't like the current android offerings. I've got a 7 plus and the only rival really was the Pixel but I hated the fact it didn't have a proper home button.No - good god no!

I've only just gone to my iPhone 7 at the weekend from my previous 5. Liking the upgrade upgrade so far - definitely quicker, better screen and being new - much better battery! That should do me for a good few years yet - as have my previous iPhones. I really, really don't want to be railroaded down the cutesy green robot path, if I can help it.
Weird isn't it? All of these manufacturers are trying to cram feature after feature into their software - and yet we're primarily concerned about a single button! :smile:Same here.

Surely the obvious thing is to buy ipod to keep for that sort of stuff?I am really into my music gear and as such have a few sets of speakers and headphones around the house in various rooms. I also work in music retail and have to do Speaker demos as part of my job.
So I'd either have to have a handful of adaptors around the house and in each pair of jeans or drop a few hundred quid on a wide band 2.4ghz receiver to use with the phone. Pointless using a shitty £50 amazon bluetooth receiver on a £6k rig at work or on my Very high quality home set ups, may as well just get a little Bose dock.
When the technology gets better and cheaper maybe, but bluetooth sound just isn't there yet. We sell £600 wireless microphones at work and they still don't sound as good as many cheaper wired mikes, because all the clarity is lost over the wireless. The bluetooth used by phones is a narrower band width and suffers even more.
That would be a solution, but it just wouldn't be practical. I would forget it from time to time or find myself wanting to use downstairs speakers and realise I've left it upstairs.For what reason would you need a handful of adaptors? You can only use one at once, just carry it with you
Thats a good shout actually, rather not carry them both around/keep them charged though.Surely the obvious thing is to buy ipod to keep for that sort of stuff?
I wasn't aware of that. But yes hopefully wireless tech will make a leap forward and become much better. Don't get me wrong, I've no complains on bluetooth in the car as its handy, but then act speakers are limited quality anyway.There are already a couple of android phones with no headphone jack. It's no doubt going to become more common before eventually no phones will have them.
Hopefully it will force the development of wireless headphones sound quality to speed up.
Totally agree. I'm all for innovation and new ideas. But adding something for little-to-no benefit - smacks of an overpaid design team really scratching their heads for ideas. The audio jack has been out for decades and works. Just leave it alone.I don't want to fill this thread up with me being a moany c**t but it just frustrates me, it was a very unnecessary move on Apple's behalf. I'd love a new iPhone 7 but I just can't get past it yet.
Probably habit more than anything. I've generally skipped a generation before even considering a new phone. I don't quite understand the obsession with changing every 6 months that some people seem to have.Innovation in the phone market is dead, a slightly bigger screen, it might be 0.02mm thinner, I can't see why people still anticipate new phones?
It's a shame m8, because I simply don't like Android. It feels incomplete and messy - like a proverbial work-in-progress. Even on the higher-end Android devices, it looks sharp on screen, but is far from a nice, logical and smooth process that I'm used to with the iOS devices. Conversely, it appears way to over-complex for the majority of users who simply message, phone and use social media. The menus within menus of sub-menus is bewildering.The next iphone I think won't have the home button, fingerprint recognistion on screen. I think they patented it already.
For the Android doubters there has never been a better time to buy one in fainress.
I legit could see them ditching the on/off button some time in the future and just have it always on.
