    I picked mine up this morning and my Home, Search, Menu, and Back buttons don't light up. I tried a factory reset and still nothing. Now my store is sold out and the nearby stores won't release until Sunday.

    Has anyone else seen this? I was so excited to get one 2 days early that it took about an hour before I noticed.

    Actually I need to correct myself. It didn't look lit up outdoors but now that I am inside, I see that it is very dimly lit. Nothing like the Epic 4G. I thought what I was looking at was the thin silver lines like on the Evo. Now I realize that it is barely lit and doesn't increase in brightness as the screen brightness increases. This is a bit of a disappointment, but it is useable for sure.

    I can't imagine why they are intentionally dim like this. Every other Android phone has them at least a little brighter, and usually a lot brighter.

    I find this odd too. I could not find anything to let me change the brightness of those buttons.

    Buttons are fine to press. Sensitive enough but not annoyingly sensitive.

    Yep, these are much more responsive. Not even a fair comparison. You'll see what I mean when you play with one.

    Bringing back the thread.

    Official take on the buttons.

    I love them. They are 100x more responsive than the epic. I'm not pressing them 3 times to get it going.

    The brightness. Well it doesn't bother me. 1. I press from memory in the first place. 2. They don't light up enough in sunlight but you can see them slightly when they are off in direct sunlight. And I always hated reading in low light because of them blinding me on the epic. They are perfect.

    my buttons are very dim too. Also overall the screen isn't as bright as my EVO. The colors are better but just not as bright.

    I don't like bright screens. Maybe in the sunlight but I never have it all the way up. The screen is perfect. The colors!
