Thumbs down convenience buttons

Please Login to Remove!

my right convenience button seems to be less sensitive. i have to press it deeper or harder to get it functioning, as opposed to the left key.

anyone experience this as well? wondering if i got a defective one from tmobile.

Mine has a ring around the button that makes it harder to accidentally hit the button. Maybe this is what you're referring to.

This is because the right convenience key is the default for the camera. The initial (soft press) is for the auto focus of the camera. The deeper press is for the shutter of the camera.

If you assign a different application to this soft key, you must depress it past the initial press in order to launch the application.

Hope this makes sense.

Pressing the right sided convenience key will get the phone off-standby mode, but it won't activate my designated function (ie. camera or calender, etc).

Maybe its on purpose, to avoid accidental pushes?

You need to press the right convenience key past the initial press. There are actually two "stops" on the right key.
