Customize Your Samsung Continuum With Themed Android Soft-Keys!

Despite the endless ocean of desirable Android phones available for the choosing, at some point you may have heard something about the Samsung Continuum. Though closely related to the Fascinate, and the rest of the Galaxy S family for that matter, it has one distinguishing feature: its soft-keys are not dedicated keys at all. Rather, the keys are simply overlain icons atop the sole 4″ screen, dividing the main screen portion and the bottom ticker area.

You may be thinking that this could lead to all sorts of fun, involving skinned soft keys. Thanks to the work of XDA forum member trailblazer101, you are now able to do precisely this. In the words of the developer:

So, in case you didn’t know already, the Continuum’s soft keys are actually part of the one full screen… Which means we can change them with a little effort.Hit me with ideas with what you want to see within this thread.

Here are the zips so far. You need CWM.
So far:

  • Original (duh :P)
  • Dark Green
  • Light Green
  • Light Blue
  • Purple
  • Dots!
  • Text!

Are you dying to customize the look of your Continuum’s soft-keys? If so, be sure to continue on to the original thread!

We are almost at the end of Q2 for 2015, and we have seen most of the flagship phones for the year already. While flagship phones usually offer bleeding-edge specs and are the most sought after phones, there is a huge market for non-flagship phones. Some offer value, others offer unique differentiating features. Today, we are going to look at the X1 phone by a Chinese company named N0.1. The company promises a truly rugged IP68 Certified phone. The device has a Quad...

When a Friend or Family Member Asks for a Phone Recommendation, What Do You Tell Them?

The majority of us here at XDA would consider ourselves power users and Android enthusiasts. Thus, when a friend or family member has a question about which phone they should get, they usually come to us. However, this is where we all differ. While some will atomically recommend the Nexus line, others in the community will suggest an offering from Samsung or LG. When a friend or family member asks you for a phone recommendation, what do you say?
