The home button at the bottom center of the display of every Samsung device not only designed to trigger some options but its presence also distinguish Samsung devices from other devices. Before the integration of fingerprint sensor it was just a normal clickable button to trigger basic actions but it seems that Samsung will soon integrate some more sensors in it. And who knows in the upcoming flagships you will be able to test your sugar, blood pressure, blood group, DNA, etc, via Home Button!
In the recent flagship devices of Samsung the fingerprint scanner is integrated in the home button. One of the most interesting thing about these devices with a fingerprint scanner is that, now you can easily turn your device home button to a touch responsive button. So what’s the catch? You no longer need to push home button, you can tap on it like back and recent key.
Different manufacturers have different strategy in the Android smartphone industry. Some of them have completely removed the physical navigation keys or have moved to capacitive ones. Samsung devices are also equipped with touch keys i.e. back key and recent screen button, but it seems they have planned to stick with the physical clickable home button in the future too. Users who recently migrated to Samsung devices may feel uncomfortable pressing the home button and would like an alternative.
Well, there are several apps available on Google Play Store like Simple Control which allows you to use on-screen navigation button on your device. But how to turn physical home button to a touch responsive one? Well, you can do that also by using the app easyHome for Samsung.
