Another ridiculous inversion
Why would anyone want buttons at the top of the screen? If your display is more than a couple inches, you can't do stuff with one hand any more. Unless you are deformed in some way and find it more convenient to hold the top of your phone. I would prefer to have NONE of them at the top, much less all of them.
