If you're holding it horizontally in your hands (that case where you can't easily reach the hardware button), you can swipe in from the left and the Windows button/tile/whatever-it-is appears in the bottom-left. I'm sure it depends on your hands and how you hold it, but I'm able to swipe it in and go back to the start page with barely any effort and no hand movement that way.

You can also swipe in from the right and get the "charms bar" which has a start button on it too, positioned midway up, which might be easier to reach for some people/grips.
