    Is there any way to turn down the brightness on the soft keys. Mine are annoyingly bright. Especially the menu key. The backlight on the menu key is really bright in the middle and fades out on the ends. I wish the used the symbol instead of spelling it out.

    They are much brighter then what came out in the Pic

    I think you have to be rooted.

    Mine don't light up at all and I wish they did. It seems some peoples do and some don't. Is there a setting for it cause I use mine alot at night and wish I had the option.

    They only light up when the light sensor tells them to. Cup your hand around the top/face of the phone, and they should light up.

    You are so right my friend. Cupped my hand on top and they came on. They are bright. Kinda weird they didn't come on in a dark room but they work and hopefully at the right times lol.

    I would also like a workaround to turn them down/off, they are lightly burning my retina.
