Sholder Buttons For Smartphone Gaming

When holding the phone sideways to play a game, it would be good if it had physical sholder buttons.

Usually these buttons in typical console games is for grenade and shooting.

So having these buttons, would allow for phone games to free up screen space that is usually for the trigger.

       [Ian Tindale], must be a handedness thing. I generally turn my phone anti-clockwise if I need it in landscape (for taking photos, typically). However, an older phone of mine had a sideways slide-out keyboard that was a clockwise turn (HTC Titan (WinMo)).

       When I had my first phone, Android (yes, the operating system, not the specific phone or a specific app) supported left landscape but not right landscape.
