Good news, everyone! LG switched to on-screen buttons for the G Pro 2 (be sure to read our preview of the phone), just like it did with last year's G2. The bad news? It still has a legacy menu button — and you can't get rid of it.

There is a glimmer of hope, however. LG's made it so you can add up to two more buttons — and that includes multitasking. (Or as it's more correctly know, a button for returning to recently used apps.)

Along with multitasking, you can add in a button for QMemo, QSlide or one that will open up the notification shade without you having to reach all the way to the top of the phone. 

To add buttons to your G Pro 2, go to Settings>Display>Front touch buttons>Button Combination. Then just drag the buttons you want to add into the scheme. Remember that you can have no more than five buttons at any one time, and you're stuck with back, home and menu. (Two out of three ain't bad.) You can, however, put them in any order you please.

You do have a few other options as well. You can change the background color for the buttons. The default is black, but you can change to a black gradient if you prefer, or white, or a white gradient. And if you prefer to have your button section transparent on the home screen, that's an option, too.
