The problem with understanding any physical buttons on an Android, is that they are extremely hardware dependent. Usually they're connected to some GPIO port on either the application processor (AP) or cellular processor (CP/modem), and on some devices (MTK,Qualcomm) these are combined in a SoC. In other devices, there is a separate touch screen MCU, that ...

I use an Android specified Headset with 3-button for my Nexus. Works brilliant. Not only does it deliver 3-button action, but also very good sound and a really hard hitting bass. Anyone enjoying Rock or Electronica will not stop listening ;-) The headset is specifically made for Android's lower voltage spec from Google and will NOT work on an iphone (the ...

When I switched over to Android I started looking for a three button headset compatible with my phone. I found that there are a couple of brands that do earphones for Android but you usually have to use an App to set the functions for button controls. I love good sound in my ears and probably use my earphones 2-5 hours per day. I have tested a couple, I ...
