    I knew few newbies to the smartphone world using it.

    seems to me like pressing the button is quicker than swiping down to up, but then again you are the expert.

    Ditto.

    And I am glad it does not wake up the Pre, or it would be pocket dialing all the time.

    I thought the center button was useless except for led notification but I tried it as a result of this thread. It does come in handy if you want to switch between multiple cards without your thumb leaving the gesture area. I would still like to see more functionality developed.

    if you enable advanced gestures , you know that the button is redundant.

    Then adding the following would make it a better phone in terms of getting things done quick .

    Charging indicator
    Message indicator
    Press and hold for Voice control
    Dial numbers while on the Phone app.
    Hang up while using the phone all
    Take pictures while on camera app
    physical buttons suck for taking pictures makes the camera wobble just enough to make it blur quite often imho
