Home back menu search. :D

By priority order. Home is the most important, then back, and then menu. Search is not so important so i put it on the right.

Thanks to rmcc for all his work!!!! :)

Leaving aside that your priority order might not be shared by everyone, what sense does it make to have the button with the "highest priority" to the left and the "not so important" one to the right? is left somehow better than right? Isn't it better to have important buttons close to the center?

And by the way, I use [back] a lot more than [home]

Home back menu search. :D

I guess that's beacouse if you pick the phone with your right-hand (aprox 90% of users are right-handed) the closer to the left is easier to press with the thumb finger :-)

And yes, I use more the back button and the menu button than the home. For me, the order of the ONe is OK, and I preffer the search button to be appart (similar to the tattoo :P)

"Home / Menu / Back / Search" or "Home / Menu / Search / Back": The first is how my current phone works, the second is how I'd like it to be :)

+1, because the middle positions are the more accessible one's and the Menu and Search buttons are the most used one's, so they should be placed in that's positions.

I Like "Menu - Home - Search - Back"
It´s just my opinion.
I think it´s the easiest and more comfortable one, at least for me :P
.

Have a nice day ;)
