    Default Buttons light up intermittently

    Anyone else have the bottom buttons on their one x not light up sometimes? I did have automatic brightness on and I thought it would sometimes turn the button lights off but it seems to even do it with auto brightness turned off. Just as I typed this it started with the lights off and then they came on.

    So anyone else have this or should I be bringing it back to rogers?

    I'm guessing from only one response this isn't a widespread issue?

    HTC and Motorola seem to use the light sensor for the capacitive buttons backlight whereas Samsung allows the user to use a setting for "timed" backlighting.

    My Rezound does this. Sometimes they are on while I'm in my office and sometimes they dont. There is no rhyme or reason to why they work intermittently.

    I had noticed this too. Glad it's by design. Good to know.
