Five way keys versus toggle switches for media players


Looking forward to some valuable insight with respect to the use of “five way keys versus toggle switches” for navigating through list of items, web browsing etc in media players considering ease of use, technical paramters etc.

By “toggle switches” do you mean a joystick? And by a 5 way key do you mean Up Down Left Right and Select?

Just trying to clarify…

I think that by “five way” he means something like a joystick on a cellphone that can be pushed as well as going left/right/up/down. But then I’m not sure what he means by “toggle switches”.
