  • Although the control buttons are in the screen, users can discard it and use the touch screen instead by swiping up from the right side of the screen (back). To be able to find the home, users swipe up from the middle of the screen. And to find the apps and programs that are operating, users swipe up from the center of the screen. In order to find the taskbar, that has the Wifi, 3G, etc. users need to swipe from the left side.
