    Received mine today ...... slight learning curve from the S3 :wink-b:

    I have one slight problem/dislike: the lower left on the S3 was a button that when pushed, depending on what app you were in or on the home screen brought up a list of options for that app or home screen. Now that button on the S5 is a list of places you have accessed last and the task screen. Now some of the apps I have don't have full functions without that button. Example: Chase Bank App - That button brought up Deposits, Payments & Transfers etc. but now I do not have any way of accessing them. Is this function button found somewhere else. I really do not have any use for 'where I have been reacently' but that button as a function button was much more useful to me. I am hoping it is someplace else but I haven't found it as yet ...... anyone else?

    How are you replying to this forum without it? I used the quote feature.

    I got mine and really like it, but I did like the menu button also. My Droid 4 had 4 buttons and I liked those.

    I've changed the home screen to ADW launcher and prefer that. Still have to add my widgets.

    I think you misunderstood what I am talking about ..... has nothing to do with the buttons on this forum.... talking about the buttons on the Galaxy S5 :question:

    I understood. What I was asking if posting a reply without a quote, where are you pressing? On my Droid 4 I used the menu button.
