Having recently been gifted an HTC desire HD for some code testing, I decided to switch from my atrocious Firefox Device and start using the Desire as my daily driver. Unfortunately, I found the physical buttons: volume up, volume down, and power, to be far too flush with the phone's case and I have little to no tactile way of knowing when I was pressing a button. Here is my simple fix.

The Problem

Although the volume up and down buttons are visibly different from the body of the phone, I tend to use those buttons the most when I am listening to music in my car and I don't want to have to look down to find the buttons.

Oh, is that a bottle of super glue?

The Simple Fix

Yes, indeed that was a bottle of super glue. As a fix, I places two very small drops of super glue on the volume buttons.

Once the drops had dried, It was (and still is) quite easy for me to determine where the buttons are simply by touching the device. Sweet, now I can keep my eyes on the road as I rock out.

Now quite reading, and go rock out.

Here's my usual solution to that problem:

If a bump is good, isn't a glow-in-the-dark bump better?

Prove you are human by solving a math problem! I'm sorry, but due to an increase of blog spam, I've had to implement a CAPTCHA.
