    I would suggest uninstalling that game or app if it's causing your device issues because there seems to be a incompatibility issue with it in the program. No sense in trying to fix something that you have totally no control of especially on a high-end device such as yours.

    Well I wouldn't say it's dumb. It's actually a nice feature. And to answer your original question it's exactly what it says on the tin. You press the dot and it hides the nav bar. So instead of having the nav bar at the bottom constantly while using apps you press the dot and then you have full screen. Then if you want your nav bar you swipe up from the bottom.

    Sorry I thought you were asking what it was. Maybe I misunderstood your question. Then I have no idea why you haven't received the update yet. Different carriers release different things at different times so you'll get it eventually. Maybe ask your carrier when they expect t release.

    No need to shout at me, I was only trying to help. If you've already got the latest update for your device then you'll have to wait until the next update is released.

    Typing in all Caps implies shouting, that's why he thought you were shouting is all ;)

    I would have replied to it but I was asleep making it a bit hard. Yeah as Mikestony said I thought you were shouting because all capitals is the text version of shouting.

    This thread is full of lulz...Reminds me of any movie with a deaf crotchety old guy that yells at the world.

    I like the dot, though just noticed it yesterday. If I'm switching apps and working I leave the nav bar visible, then hide it when done. Something about reaping the benefits of every millimeter of screen space that I paid for.

    So you can't see the second half of that then? I'd believe you weren't shouting at me until you pick and choose your important bits :rolleyes:
