TouchWiz was often blamed for being too full of bloatware and slowing down the device that it was supposed to improve in terms of user experience. Samsung listened to that criticism and finally decided to trim the UI down in size. While this step worked really well and most users liked the new TouchWiz a lot better, it did come with certain sacrifices in terms of customizability. Earlier, it was possible to tinker with the backlight settings of the capacitive keys, but unfortunately, it is a thing of the past now.


Fortunately, you can still customize it on your S6, S6 Edge, S6 Edge+, Note 5, S7 and S7 Edge with the help of a third party app known as Galaxy Button Lights. Download it for free from the Google Play Store and install it. Once you open the application, you will find that everything that was missing from the TouchWiz settings menu in terms of the capacitive key backlighting, they are all there.


You will get to change and choose in-between settings such as Time to remain on, Always on, Always off and Default. Adjust the settings according to your convenience and tap on SAVE BUTTON BACKLIGHT BEHAVIOR to apply the settings on your device immediately. Just to make sure that you are downloading the right application, check if the developer's name is mentioned as NotQuiteinsane on the Play Store's Download section. If it is, then that's the right app.

 



After months of battling apps dedicated to disabling or remapping the infamous Bixby button, Samsung has finally decided to give in to their users' wishes and has ultimately provided the very welcome option of turning the button off. Strangely enough, this comes right after Bixby actually started to become somewhat useful for its voice based functionalities!


This option came in with the latest Bixby update and users of the Galaxy S8, S8+ and the Note 8 can finally toggle the Bixby button off. If you do that, pressing the button won't start Bixby anymore. In fact, it won't do anything at all after that! You can also turn the button on/off from the Bixby settings menu if you want to.


In case you don't see that option on your device, it means you probably have not been given the update yet. Don't worry though, because it will get there eventually. Perhaps we would have been a bit happier if Samsung allowed us to remap the Bixby button to something useful as well, but hey! One baby step at a time, right?

It isn't very often that Apple finds itself on the receiving end of a lawsuit as it is usually they who are suing other OEMs. However, in a somewhat rare turn of events, Apple was sued earlier by the existing division of Nokia Corp. over patent infringements in Asia, Europe and the US. Although most people think that "Nokia" got sold off to Microsoft, the truth is that the Finnish company had only sold off its telecommunications business to the Windows giant in 2014 and not the entire company.


According to an official statement by Nokia on December 21, Apple has infringed on 40 of its patents, stretched over 11 countries all around the world. All of the infringements have been noted, and filed against the Cupertino giant in courts of both Germany and the United States. To top it off, Nokia has even highlighted the fact that Apple declined the company's offer to legally license a number of its patents concerned with Nokia's inventions and introductions to the industry. It would be interesting to see how Apple reacts to the lawsuits.

It may come as a sad news to some users. Latest rumors indicates that, Sony might Exit the smartphone market in a bid to become profitable once again. The Japanese tech giant's CEO Kazuo Hurai announced at a press conference that Sony will no longer pursue sales growth in the highly competitive field.

 

Right in line with past reports, Mr. Hirai revealed that the company will consider a sale of its struggling smartphone and television businesses. However, there is no deal currently in the works.

 

Despite developing quality Android smartphones, Sony has struggled in the highly competitive smartphone field. The company has been sandwiched between rivals such as Apple and Samsung in the high end and the army of Chinese companies in the low end of the market.
