Opinions on the power button placement.

http://forum.xda-developers.com – I really want to like the HTC one for its design, screen and sound quality. But I just can't fathom the placement of the power button. It just makes no sense on such a tall phone. HTC is the ONLY manufacturer that places the power button on the top of such large devices. This fact alone should have been noticed by HTC. Ya there is the volume wake mod but you still have to lock the device and using a widget for it is not a good solution. The power button is the single most used thing on a smartphone so to have it in such an awkward place is such a compromise that one really shouldn't have to m (HowTos)
