    I'm thinking about trading my horrible G6 in for an S9+ but wondered about one thing...

    I know you can change the order of the navigation buttons (Recents-Home-Back or Back-Home-Recents) but can you change the look of them to the standard Android Triangle-Circle-Square? The ones I've seen in the demo units instore are ugly!

    Would installing a customer launcher like Nova allow you to change the look of the nav buttons?

    Thanks

    I'm pretty sure that the navigation buttons operate at a lower level than the launcher.. . So am fairly sure that nova won't touch them

    Nova won't let you change the look of the navigation buttons, but there are navigation bar customisation apps out there.

    I don't have a Samsung, so haven't tested any with that phone, but I imagine that they would work.

    I'd like to delete this message, but the site won't let me, so I'll just waste my time and everyone else's, and point out how stupid it is to deny the ability to delete one's own post, even if this is attempted within a few minutes after posting.

    You can report your own post and ask a moderator to delete it.
