Not being remapped to another function or even deactivated , the fact that the South Korean giant’s new top-of-mind brings more sensitive buttons than in previous generations has generated a certain nuisance in some users, who end up activating the assistant in moments more inopportune.

As can be seen in the sequence of tweets above, the social network user @Samsung_News_ makes a complaint about the button: ” I really like Samsung, but please let us remap or disable this button (referring to the reserved for Bixby) “- in free translation.
