It’s the first time in seven years and any Galaxy has virtual softkeys on the S8. Not the physical back, home and recent apps buttons like the devices of the past. As a result, owners will have to completely relearn how they interact with the smartphone. It’s pretty easy though, and works like most other Android phones available today.

Lucky Samsung included a number of customization options and controls. If this is your first Galaxy, the onscreen “Back” button is probably in the wrong place. All other Androids put it on the left side of the device. If you want to change that and other things, this is it.

Then pick and choose whether you want the back button on the left like most Android devices or the Samsung style on the right.

Users have the option of hard pressing the home button to take you home from anywhere. Whether the phone is locked, closed or even in full screen mode running an app or movie. We recommend that you enable it. And finally, there’s a slider where owners can customize how hard or light the vibration engine is with virtual softkeys and home button.

As a quick note, there will be certain situations where the navigation background color on the screen will not be what you choose. Some apps and even the home screen will have transparent or other colors by default. Either way, it’s nice to have this level of customization on Samsung’s latest and greatest smartphone.
