At last Samsung ditched, the most annoying feature,the physical home button on its new flagship, so the Galaxy S8 has software buttons now. One of the great things about having virtual navigation buttons is that the order can be changed and they can be customized as you wish. Here’s how you can switch softkeys on your Galaxy S8 or S8+.

If you’ve bought the new Samsung Galaxy S8 or going to buy one and you find yourself not adjusting well to the new order of the navigation buttons, you’re not alone.
