Change Galaxy S6 Edge Touch Key Light Settings

Let us tell you from the very beginning that we have no idea why Samsung decided to hack up the TouchWiz UI for the US versions of the Galaxy S6 Edge, giving carriers exclusive fundamental options others didn’t get. For example, many of you already know that only the AT&T Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge handset has the option to change the touch key light settings and this is a real disappointment.

What about the other owners who have another version of this handset and not the Galaxy S6 Edge (SM-G925F) one? Shouldn’t they enjoy touch key light settings as well? There are cases when you might want to disable Galaxy’s S6 Edge touch key light or to simply increase or decrease the Galaxy S6 touch key light duration, But Samsung tells us that we cannot do that

However, we have some really clever minds on XDA which found a simple method which requires no root access and no complicated procedures. Samsung might have considered that it’s best to remove the settings for Galaxy S6 Edge Capacitive Keys Backlighting, but there is an app which saves the day. To be more specific, we are talking about the free app known as Galaxy Button Lights and here we’ll show you wht you have to do.
