Default How do I make the three hard keys light up?

Perhaps it just a bad calibration in software but those keys never light up when they should. I do make them go on by covering the light sensor. Am hoping HTC addresses this in a future update....

I agree. The light level is calibrated WAY too low for any meaningful help from that light. It has to be almost pitch black for them to come on for me. I too hope HTC addresses this.

Hmm, I haven't noticed them not being on when they should to be honest. I wonder if there are some differences across the line in that regard.

Wow, I just noticed that they only come on when I cover the light sensor too.

Agreed - definitely hard to see in low light.

I had the same issue with my DNA as well and it bothered me. Would much rather have had them like the Galaxy phones that light up whenever you touch the screen.
