    Default Lg gpad 8.3 front touch buttons

    Having had the brilliant g2 for a while I decided that the gpad looked a bit of a steal at 200.

    It was, its great, much better than the Samsung tablet I had but there is one thing that really annoys me. On my phone when I turn to landscape mode the front touch buttons line up on the rhs of the display where I can get at them with my right thumb. On the glad however they move to the bottom of the landscape display where they are much more difficult to access when thumb typing - the home key is right in the middle! Worse still, I keep hitting the home key when I'm typing and miss the space bar by a mm or too, as I appear to do quite often
    Is there any way round this? It seems absurd and its really pissing me off.

    There is an option to move it to the right in landscape mode if that works better for you. You can also change the size of the bar to make it smaller if needed.

    I'm not sure about rooting, are there any alternatives?
