Over time, the appearance of smartphones changes. The case is increasingly monolithic, an external SIM card tray appears, several cameras, a large screen, and instead of physical keys, users observe the on-screen buttons.
About the navigation virtual panel
Honor understands how the size of the screen is important for smartphone owners, so it increases the display with a similar solution, removing the usual buttons on the virtual navigation panel. Thus, users of honor 10 control the smartphone by touching the screen itself. For many owners, this interface is uncomfortable and unusual, especially after using ordinary physical buttons. By default, the navigation panel includes 3 buttons: “Back”, “Home” and “Menu”. These keys are located at the very bottom of the screen, occupying part of the workspace.
It really takes time to understand why you need a triangle, circle and square at the bottom of the screen. If the triangle somehow resembles the Back button, then there are problems with the other two. Only 3 buttons, but at first a lot of difficulties can arise.
