    Default No light on back & home soft keys galaxy tab 3 7"

    Hi,

    Today I just bought a new samsung galaxy tab 3 7" and found that there is no light in soft lights ( back & home). Is there any way to turn those light on. Inside settings -> brightness there is no option about it. I also download soft light button app but still not working.

    Model no: T211
    Android ver: 4.1.2
    Kernel ver: 3.4.5-x

    Please suggest and help.

    Thanks,
    Johabd

    Yeah, I can confirm that the Sprint LTE version of the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 also does not have any back lighting for the menu or back button.

    I have mentioned a few times in other posts that the Tab 7.0 has to be considered a low end tablet. It really surprised me that Samsung felt the need to "save a few pennies" by cutting that feature.

    The only reason I was willing to purchase one was because of the $49 price that Sprint currently offers. I wouldn't have paid the $179/$199 price for the WiFi version. At that price range the are quite a few tablets that are so much better.

    So, besides those soft keys not lighting up, what else is low end on this tablet? :banghead:

    I like to know since I also was considering getting the Sprint deal!

    I don't have back light on the tab 3 7.0 soft keys, I think it's on the bigger models.

    The primary issue would be the screen resolution. My comparison tablets that have better specs include the Nexus 7 & Kindle Fire HD or HDX.

    Keep in mind that the specs for the Sprint Galaxy Tab 3 7" are much better than the WiFi Galaxy Tab 3 7". You really can't rely on any of the reviews that are currently available online due to this difference.

    Yay my Galaxy Tab 2 has on screen buttons like a Nexus 7. Looks like the Tab 3 went a step backwards

    Well, after thinking about it since this deal begun.
    I finally went to a Sprint store last night and got it!

    Actually, they didn't have any in store so they ordered it, I'll probably have it by the weekend! :thumbup:
