Buttons Layout...

    Android users are familiarized with standard buttons layout. Left = Back / Center = Home / Right = Menu. The OPO has this layout in screen but if you decide to activate the capacitive buttons are some kind of Samsung melt (Back and Menu inverted). I don't like it AT ALL. It must have the same layout for in-screen and capacitive buttons. This is a VERY HIGH CON for me!

    Post your comments...!

    I assume by it being a "very high con" for you, you do not like using on-screen buttons?

    I'd prefer out-screen buttons to get that big 5.5" display but with that layout, I'd use on-screen buttons. Maybe because I have a Nexus 5 and HATE Samsung.

    You can change the function of each capacitive key in the settings. However obviously from the outside they will look the same.

    If so, that'd be amazing. Do you have confirmation of any sort for this, or is it mainly speculation?

    I like the layout. I have a Samsung phone now, and I am used to the back button on the right. But it will be nice to change it whenever I change from on-screen to capacitive.

    It is definitely possible. I read it on one of the reviews of the device.

    I have read in a half dozen places that CM11s will let you change the function of the capacitive buttons. It is definitely a confirmed feature.
    And if you change the function of the buttons and someone is watching you use your phone their mind will blown when they see buttons doing the opposite of what they're supposed to. Best feature ever.

    In case all of you don't know: left=back, middle =home and right=recent apps is the standard layout. Samsung and one plus have it wrong. Also the fact that you can change onscreen buttons to whatever you want means they are more user friendly. Also they are consistent with touchinput and they are responsive!

    i'll use on-screen buttons anyway, so it doesn't really matter. this button layout is a little annoying on my tablet though

    For me, the back button on the right is ideal anyway as you don't have to stretch your thumb across the bottom of the device all the time. Especially as it's the button you use most.

    I've also read somewhere that you can edit the function of the physical buttons in settings.

    With the Samsung galaxy s5 they have changed the configuration of the capacitive keys so that the left key does equal the back key in line with the on screen buttons. Tbh I'm supprised that it isn't a requirement of the CTS test by Google to have capacitive keys in the same order as the on screen ones.
