Which Navigation method?

On my phones, the Mate 10 Pro came with the “traditional” Google three button layout (back, home and task list).

The P20 came with the traditional button layout or the long “pill” shaped single button, which I used for a while.

Then, when Pie came out, they both got the gestures navigation (swipe up from the bottom edge for home, swipe from left or right for back and swipe up and hold for task list).

I’ve now switched both over to the gesture based navigation, which means the space “wasted” on the buttons at the bottom of the screen can be reclaimed by the app or the home screen. I’m liking it so far.

So the question is, which navigation method do you use, and why?
