How to hide on-screen buttons on the LG G3
posted by Victor H. / Jun 18, 2014, 9:47 AM
The downside to all this, though, is that apps and games that do not support the immersive mode that Google introduced with Android 4.4 KitKat, contrast with the often out-of-place looking on-screen keys. It all results in a flawed experience, especially for more immersive games where you could accidentally hit the home key, and quit the game.
Is there a fix? Luckily, the answer is yes. LG has built in a neat feature in the menus where you can select any app you want and force it to hide the on-screen Android navigation keys. How do you do it? Just follow our tutorial below to find out.
- Display 5.5" 1440 x 2560 pixels
- Camera 13 MP / 2.1 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 801, Quad-core, 2500 MHz
- Storage 32 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 3000 mAh(21h 3G talk time)

Does one suggest buying the G3 or waiting for Note 4 to come out?

honestly I've loved my N3, but the locked down boot loader on VZW has KILLED me. I am very tempted to sell and get a N3 but i think I'm gonna force myself to wait for the N4. As little as i use the stylus i love it still. i think it will come down to 2 things. If the N4 has a thinner bezel I'm halfway sold, if it finally drops the button for onscreen I'm getting a N4 without thinking about it. By waiting for the N4 I can see what the devs do with the G3 and how it will be on VZW, because i can guarantee the N4 will be super locked down regardless

I wanted to upgrade to an S5 from an SIII but phones are coming out faster than you can blink =( The G3 is very nice but tempted on getting two phablets when they both launch (Note 4 and iPhone 6 - 5.5)

I think it's more of a problem using on-screen buttons instead of physical.

You can hide on-screen buttons, but physical buttons are always there...

"Does it take any precious space in my screen???" No, but it does make your device larger than it has too be. "And in samsung phones menu(now app switcher) and back buttons hides it self when not in use...." That's not useful at all... The buttons are still there, just not backlit, but it's still taking up precious space. Physical buttons aren't the answer. Navigation bar also isn't the answer. However Cyanogenmod's PIE is perfect since it's software based AND it only activates by gesture. It's the best of both worlds.

Wait for Note 4 then compare and decide for yourself. In my opinion, there is no comparison. Note series is the king of mobile technology. But just compare them yourself

They should have done this 2.5 years ago. But better late than never.
