    Have you ever wanted to change the amount of time the backlights of the back and recent buttons on your Galaxy phone stay on? Some of you may have wanted to turn off the backlights completely. Now you can thanks to developer "NotQuiteInsane" who has just released a super simple app "Galaxy Button Lights". The app allows you to set the time duration for both the back button and recent's button on your Galaxy device. This does require Root if you wish for the settings to be saved. Head to the Play Link for more info and the download.

    via Play Store

    This has come standard on the last few Galaxy S models. [​IMG] strange that it doesn't on the S6.
    Changing the color would be a sweet option.

    Thought that was standard on all of them? Pretty sure my S4 had the option and, unless I'm crazy, my Note 4 does too. I remember having shut them off completely on the Note for a while in an effort to squeeze out just that much more battery life, but ended up turning them back on.

    No, your right Jonny. I just wasn't sure if the Note series had it too, but thanks for confirming.
    I've also turned mine completely off thinking it would save battery life, but there wasn't a noticeable difference, so I keep mine set to 1.5.
    Perhaps the dev responsible for this app will include some features not available in the stock settings.

    Yeah they removed it from the S6. I wonder if they ever fixed the light bleed that shines around the buttons in a dark room on the white models?

    This will definitely be a welcomed app for S6 users then.

    I have a similar situation with my Note Edge where I use use a third party app to increase the functionality of the side panel. Sammy makes me scratch my head sometimes.

    It is called EdgeBoard. I downloaded it from Galaxy Apps (Samsung's App Store).

    It allows me to put any app on the sidepanel. For instance I use Chrome Beta, instead of Chrome, but the regular Edge settings won't allow me to put it over there. It only recognizes regular Chrome.

    It adds a taskmanager, clock, and date, a battery icon, etc as well.

    It installs 3 extra panels to choose from in the settings app.
