Buttons, on screen or capacitive?

We all know some phones have on screen buttons to navigate, and others with dedicated buttons. From my past experiences, I find the dedicated buttons perform slower than on screen buttons. My first device was a HTC, which featured a home, back, menu, and search key (yes, we had them back then), and ever since I upgraded to a Nexus 4, the on screen buttons seemed to respond much quicker. Since the Axon 7 will have an AMOLED panel, on screen buttons may cause problems in the future with screen burn ins.

So, which buttons suit you? And which one do you think would work best for the Axon 7?

    This question has been asked in a couple of threads and we've been told that the answer is pending some information from manufacturing and marketing.  Personally, if there's going to be a bezel, and having the capacitive buttons doesn't increase the size of the bezel, I can't see why you wouldn't want to have them.
