Samsung Captivate :: Prefer Soft Out Physical Keys / Buttons?

Nov 4, 2010

I hate soft keys. They're hard to see. It's hard to know whether I pressed them. I often press them accidentally. They add absolutely nothing to the phone. In short, soft keys suck.

Samsung Captivate :: Soft Keys/Button Issues

Sep 11, 2010

First off, I love the Captivate. I just recently swapped it out with the HTC Aria, and haven't looked back since. However, I do miss certain aspects of HTC's Sense UI...

Anyways, my main concern with this phone is the 4 Soft Keys below the Samsung logo. I will address my issues/concerns/questions in the following list:

--How bright are your soft keys when backlit? (In comparison to other Captivates or other Android devices)

--Mine seem to have a slight yellow/brownish tint to them. Anybody have pure white, or anything different?

--The Home button: is your roof slightly different sizes when comparing the left to right. (Yes, I am aware this is nit-picky. not worried or bothered, just curious)

--Finally, my responsiveness on any of the 4 buttons is spotty at times. Especially once pressed when they are no longer lit. Have many others experienced this, and if so, which button(s) in particular give you trouble?

Samsung Epic 4G :: Remap Keys On PHYSICAL Keyboard?

Sep 12, 2010

I'd like to remap some of the keys on the PHYSICAL keyboard. For example, I've never inserted a smiley in a message and don't intend to start now, so remaping the dedicated smiley key to something useful would be productive.

Samsung Moment :: Physical Keys Make Crackly Sound

Mar 20, 2010

The keys work fine, but certain ones make a clicky or crackly sound (typically after not been used for a moment, then they're fine after being pushed). There is also a strange feeling to them to go along with the sound.

Samsung I7500 :: Physical Buttons Not Working

Oct 14, 2009

I've had my phone for a while now but a few days ago some of the physical buttons stopped working. I'm not sure why but the home, call pick up, and camera buttons now no longer function. I'd have assumed this was a physical fault immediately, however when the screen is darkened (power save?) if I press any of the "failed" buttons then it will light up again! I'd be interested in knowing whether there are any diagnostic tools available for this also. Failing anything else I'll be phoning O2 to get phone replaced! I've updated to II4 via the NPS update and they are still broken.

Android :: Handset Without Physical Keys

Jun 10, 2010

Are there any existing or forthcoming handsets without physical buttons for Home/Menu/Back/Search? I know these are required for the Android interface, but are there virtual keys on any handsets? It's a small gripe, but on my Legend I am not loving the keys after operating the touch screen!

General :: Mapping Touchscreen To Physical Keys?

Feb 9, 2012

Any way to take games with virtual controllers (D-Pad and buttons) and map them to physical keys?" Either on a built-in keyboard like the Droid 4, or the Xperia Play's keys, or even mapping them to a third party device such as a bluetooth keyboard or Wiimote/PS3 controller.

So what I was wondering, is if there already is an app out there that can take a point on the touchscreen, and assign it to a keypress on a physical device?

Samsung Captivate :: Backlights On Bottom Keys

Jul 24, 2010

Is there any app/hack/widget to keep the backlights on the bottom buttons on just as long as the screen is backlit? So annoying how quickly they go off. Equally as annoying is how quickly the screen goes to sleep after you get a text. It literally stays on for 2 seconds, so I have to press the power button then slide/unlock to get to my text. Needs to be an option to keep it on for longer (10 seconds).

HTC Incredible :: Soft Keys Light Turns Off

Jun 25, 2010

I'm guessing this is because the light detector determines I have plenty of light and thus decides that I don't need them to glow. But really, it's just annoying, as in direct light, i can't see the keys whatsover thanks to glare. Thus, my questions: 1. is it normal for the soft key lights to turn off? and 2. is there any way to override this and have them on at all times?

General :: Soft Keys Died On GT-i9000

Jan 30, 2012

I have a Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant GT-i9000 (Bell Mobility, Canada Edition).I am running Darkyrom V10.3 (NO! my problem has nothing to do with Darkyrom)The device is Rooted via Superoneclick

Here is the problem:

My back button has always seemed a bit glitchy and one of my friend told me to hit *#*#2663*#*# and hit "Touch key FW update".

I did that and my back button was acting even worse so I went back in and hit "TSP FW update".

Now my buttons do not work at all! I read somewhere that old me to do a factory reset but I really REALLY don't want to as I cant even backup my stuff in Titanium Backup Root because I have no menu key.

Both times the update came back with a pass and there was no error.

General :: Looking To Remap Home Key And Soft Keys?

Apr 2, 2014

Looking to remap my home key, and my menu and back soft keys on my s3. I've looked at editing scripts, and even Xposed modules for this and here is what I found.

I can remap my keys manually, but I cannot map them to open an application.

With Gravity Box Module, I can map the applications to launch on a double press or a long press.

Here is what I want to do with a single tap.

[MENU SOFT KEY] [HOME KEY] [BACK SOFT KEY]
Open Phone Open search Open Camera

Is there an xposed module for this?

General :: Split Status Bar And Soft Keys?

Dec 13, 2012

how to split the status bar and the soft keys on a crappy rebranded tablet? It runs 4.1 but the notifications, volume buttons and soft keys overlap each other making it look an eye sore. I have taken a look in the framework-res.apk and systemui.apk but can not find anything. What I want to do is split the two a bit like the nexus 7, so that the status bar is at the top and the soft buttons are at the bottom.
