Button Order

When using the control bar (navigation bar), the buttons are arranged in the order of Back, Home, and Background Daps.

In addition to the standard control bar buttons, the following functions are available:

  • Open notification bar
  • Capture+ (Create screenshot)
  • QSlide (apps in the window)
  • SIM (dual SIM change)

Up to five buttons can be added to the control bar on the LG device.
