    Default S3 Home button not working

    The home button on my S3 stopped working. Can anyone help? I have tried to factory reset the phone and that did not work.

    Welcome to the forums!
    I think that may be more a hardware issue than anything else. Is the phone insured?

    Maybe there is something stuck under it? Try to blow in it.

    Since the factory reset didn't work, if the phone is still under warranty, take it back to your service provider or contact Samsung. Most likely a physical failure of the button or the motherboard.

    This Button Savior: won't fix your problem but it will give you an alternative to using the Home button until you decide what to do.

    You're welcome.

    And of course there's always something like for a permanent fix.

    An alternative to the app previously mentioned is this one:

    It doesn't have as many options, but it also doesn't take space in the screen. It works by swiping your finger from the bottom of the screen upwards.
    Other movements can do other tasks too, such as moving your finger on a diagonal starting from the bottom opens the notification screen
