Setting up virtual home buttons(navigation bar) on Samsung Galaxy S8 

Samsung has made a big bet with its new S8 phone, they have even created new a new settings menu just for their virtual navigation buttons! I can tell you what you can do with them.

One of the biggest and most controversial news about the S8 and S8+ is that they are dropping physical buttons on this new generation of phones, this used to be a staple of the phone, but just because they started using virtual buttons doesn’t mean they’re doing it wrong. As they’ve come up with a whole new settings menu just for these buttons.

At first glance, the design of the buttons is different from the usual Android line of virtual buttons, natively S8 have the multitasking button on the justify, the home button on the middle and the back button on the right. Using this new galaxy s8 button settings you can change the multitasking and back button arrangement, effectively inverting them.

The home button will remain visible at any time, even when the screen is locked, you can use it to unlock the phone if there’s no security option enabled and it’s also useful for video playback, as they’ve actually made it in a way that it’s not in the way.
Keep in mind though, that if there’s a security option enabled, you’ll have to use the home button first and then go through the security option.
