Samsung Galaxy S5 answering calls with Home Button

You can use the Home Button of your Samsung Galaxy S5 for answering incoming calls. This is much more comfortable than to accept calls via the display slider, where you have to wipe the green phone with your finger. However, you only have to activate the option "Pressing the Home Key"" in the settings. We show you now where you can enable this option in the system settings of the Samsung Galaxy S5:

Open the phone app on your Samsung Galaxy S5. If it is open, type in the top right at the three vertically arranged dots to unfold a small menu. Select "Settings". Navigate now to:

Call -->Answering and ending calls

In this submenu, you will now find a setting called "Pressing the Home Key." Select here "Press the Home key". By posting a hook in the corresponding check-box the option will be activated. That's it. Now, if you receive a incoming call on the Samsung Galaxy S5, you'll just have to press the home button and the call is answered.
