    Can the "recent apps", "home", and "back" keys be set to light up? Would make it easier to use the tablet to read in darkened room. I could find no such setting.

    They didn't on the tab 3, I don't think they do on this new one either, which sucks. I hope I'm wrong though.

    You're not wrong on this. I just got one today and can't find where those navigation buttons light up. Not a big deal to me. I know the general area that the navigation buttons are at on the bottom of the Samsung Tab tablets, feel in that general area and normally find them rather quickly. I just upgraded from a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7" model) today. Still would be nice if those buttons did light up though. I just can't get over how much faster this tablet is compared to my Tab 2.

    They do light up on the tab 3 8.0. They don't light up on the 7 inch model only.

    How about on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 (8" model)? I haven't seen where those buttons light up on that yet.

    Not sure about the tab 4 8.0. If they don't light up that would be yet another step back on Samsung's part from the tab 3 series.

    I haven't found it yet but I've had too much fun playing around with other features of this tablet to see about this.

    That's what I've noticed. Not a big deal to me though. Still a nice tablet.

    They do light up on the tab 3 8.0 but only when you tap them and by that time you have selected the option? It would be good if some of the screen backlight could be directed to these buttons as this would not mean more current drain from the battery. Just a thought.
    Personally I don't have a problem with this.

    Because they don't light up and because I am used to on-screen buttons, I disabled those buttons and enabled on-screen buttons. You need root to do this.
