How to enable / disable the vibration feedback of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge's capacitive buttons
Samsung is among the few manufacturers out there who consistently place capacitive buttons under the screens of their devices. While other smartphone builders prefer to rely on the virtual navigation buttons, present on stock Android, Sammy and co's decision to place hardware keys allow for larger screen real estate and a lot of users prefer them.

The buttons haven't changed much since inception – they are LED-backlit, for ease of use, and give off a vibration feedback when tapped, so that the user can be sure that the input has been registered. The battery saving mode that Samsung has been placing in its TouchWiz interface for more than a year now turns off the backlight and vibration feedback automatically, to conserve the most power possible. But you yourself can limit those manually. We've already looked at how you can turn off the lights, here's how to enable / disable the vibration of the capacitive navigation keys on the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge.

You can download an app called Hidegalaxybuttons and it will turn off the back lights on the navigation keys. I never understood why Samsung doesn't give this option.

There is an option in the display settings about touch light duration on my S5.. you can turn them off and on as per your will. No need to download any app for that.

And that option doesn't exist on the S6 because basically Samsung has no consistency in anything they do other than consistently delivering shoddy software.

There seem to be a lot of these articles. I can hardly wait for "How to adjust the screen brightness on your Samsung S6" and "How to adjust the volume on your Samsung S6."
