    I was playing with the S7 yesterday and it's a great phone, but the damn buttons on the bottom keep turning off after a second, and I kept mistapping because I couldn't exactly tell where to tap in my peripheral vision. This is no problem on other Android phones for me; I dislike having to look or guess where the Back button is, but I found no option to keep them on or just fade to 50% or something, which seems more reasonable. I don't understand Samsung's obsession with trying to look like the iPhone or reverse Android's Back button.

    On the s6/note 5 , certain verisons had it in the settings. If it didn't then you can use the Galaxy Button lights app from the play store or do a few adb commands. Root isn't needed. Hopefully it will be the same for the s7

    The buttons are part of the screen back light timer if I'm not mistaken.

    On the S6 you just got to settings > display > touch key light duration & set it to your preference. I hope the S7 still has this feature.

    There's an app called Galaxy button lights that you can use without root

    On the S5, the timeout for those keys are actually adjustable in the settings. Hopefully they'll be the same case for the S7

    They're not. You have to download an app called galaxy button lights. Only the at@t version has the setting built in. Or at least it did on the s6. I'm not sure about the s7.
