    Default 2 Minor issues - re bottom buttons.

    Ok....love this device but 2 minor issues relating to the buttons at the bottom:

    Firstly....the home button. I use a stylus and it is a little annoying to have to press the physical button to go back to the Home Screen. What suggestions are there as an alternative??

    Secondly, I didn't notice this until using the GTS with dim lights. the Back and Recent buttons can take a little finding!! Maybe I can blame age but is it reasonable to wonder if there were any options/apps to have them dimly lit???

    Thanks -- Nicho

    I set mine at 6 seconds but I noticed that the light disappears when you switch on "power saving". It never did that with the S4 or S3 or Note 3 phones.

    Not a complete answer to your problem, but maybe you might find the floating tool button useful.

    Yeah, tool box is good. Also the app pie control
