    This isn't very scientific, but I've noticed that those keys respond well when I use my thumb to press them. However, when I use my index finger it is much harder to get a response. No clue why... but 90% of the time I use my thumb. I noticed this when I was using the physical keyboard and went to push the back button with my index finger.

    Anyone else notice this?

    For me the only key that gives me trouble is the back key, the other three I only have to barely touch and they work but, the back key needs my thumb in a straight line with the phone,,,annoying but I still love the phone

    I dont charge my phone. I only charge my spare battery with the supplied charger. It charges pretty fast. I dont even worry about battery life anymore :)

    Hi. I'm a Sprint employee and Epic owner/user. I've heard a few people on forums saying their Back button needs a harder press, longer press or in some cases using a thumb instead of a finger. There's a group of us that have been issues Epics since before public launch and none of our units seems to have that issue. We've passed it as a concern to Samsung, so hopefully a future ROM update or patch will help the sensitivity. Thanks for reporting your issues and being Sprint customers! We're listening!

    My Epic had this problem and I ended up taking it back and getting a new one. The new one was immediately better. The lights were bright on the buttons (didn't realize how dim my other one was) and the battery seemed to last a lot longer and run cooler. I believe it was definitely a bad device.
