      yore right, the upper one is on the screen / software /os built in. the lower one is the light sensor button… i think they can get rid off by updating or root the os

        And how can we do this for the Gophone i9 model? because it have only the home button.

    Doesn’t look like it has Dual Sim. No Dual Sim = pointless. There are already enough single Sim phones available in Europe.

      This cheap? I don’t think so. At least not in Norway.
