One thing that can’t go unnoticed is that the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus smartphones don’t have too many buttons. Just the same, when one of the few buttons stops working as it should, the problem will instantly stand out. The back button we’d like to talk to you about today is one of the keys that can stop working or, in any case, make you believe it stopped working.
Lucky for you, the second option is more common than the first one. Not sure what that means or how is this possible? Let us put it this way…
Aside from doing what it is supposed to do, the telltale that the back button is up and running is the fact that it lights up when you tap it. The people who wrongly believe that something happened to it are the people who notice it no longer lights up. Most likely, the device disabled it automatically when it badly needed to preserve the battery.
To summarize, if you suspect that something might be wrong with this button just because you don’t see that light turning on behind the soft key, you have to try the following.
