Ok, I moved the thread to the S7 forum. Does this happen when you're on the homescreen to begin with? Or does it only happen when you're within some other app?

I am talking about when I hit the home button to "open" the phone. Instead of home screen so I can select text, or make a call, or any other function. It opens to keypad, then I have to click twice to get to home screen. Have not had the s7 very long but old s5 opened to home screen and I think the s7 did before latest update?

By "keypad," do you mean a phone dialer numberpad, a PIN entry lockscreen, or the full keyboard?

Hey Jim. Mine does it to but of a small annoyance but I guess they think I just call a contact instead of texting. But luckily I'm a righty and it's not hard to get into the habit of tapping the button when I open the app.

I dug around in setting and can't find anything . Sorry buddy

Duh, I hate it when old habits make you stupid. Old S5 I think had a symbol in the same corner, that I would swipe.
This one had the phone there, did. Not even realize I could swipe middle of the screen.
You get a " atta boy" and much thanks.
