I've been using this for about a month, with an app called KeyCut, mainly for the flashlight and for calling people in the family. KeyCut allows up to 9 short press shortcuts and 3 on long press. Not perfect - it gets confused if any media is being played and pauses it even if the play/pause shortcut hadn't been set, and is difficult to pull out of the headphone jack - but I like using it anyway. Got it for 75 rupees, but it's available for as low as 35.
3 plus ones

- It doesn't unlock the phone (may be allowed on rooted phones - I don't know). But the clicks can be customized, for instance on one short click my camera app opens, two - flashlight, three to six are set for calling people, one long press for muting notification sounds. So with the fingerprint sensor to unlock and the smart key shortcuts, I don't need to look at the screen. And that's handy, because the Nexus 6P is too large for one-handed use.Jun 7, 2016
