    I just upgraded from my trusty Samsung S4 (which, btw, was the best phone I ever owned) to a Note 5. There are a few modest differences in the function of the capacitive buttons, most of which I like.

    On my S4, the windows button one the far left was a legacy menu button, which is useful for a few applications (like Nova and Google finance). You can now achieve the same result by holding down the back button, which is counterintuitive. Meanwhile, what was once the menu button brings up the list of running applications. A long press brings up the multi-app split screen.

    I'd like to switch the long presses on the app and back buttons.

    So, I'd like to have the following:

    short press on left button brings up past applications.
    Long press brings up menu.

    Home button unchanged.

    short press on back button is the back function.
    long press on the back button is split screen mode.

    Anyway to do this?

    You would probably need root

    yeah, that's what worries me (because I don't want to root).
