    I'm a frequent user of the physical keyboard but I wanted to know how to control the backlight. I was using it last night and noticed the backlight wasnt turning on but I switched to Home++ today and I saw it come on and off intermittently when I was typing with it. Any way to change its settings to stay on for like 2 seconds/5seconds etc?

    I believe the update tied the keyboard backlight to the screen auto-backlight level. If you have that enabled, try turning it off. Might make it stay on for longer stretches instead of constantly adjusting. Also, make sure you aren't partially covering the light sensor as you type.

    It's about 1cm to the right of the speaker on the face of the phone. If you cover it with your finger, you'll see the screen dim.
