I had an LG Optimus V phone and the physical buttons on the front could get pressed when it was in my pocket, which would turn on the screen.
I'm considering a phone (Droid X) with physical buttons b/c I like the physical buttons easier to see and feel when using). But.... I don't want the screen turning on all the time (and draining the battery).
Does the Droid X's row of menu/back/search buttons turn the screen on?
