    I bought one htc 8s but i have one question.. The Capacitive buttons wont light up when pressed..they just vibrate. They only get illumination when i receive a call.. Is this normal? I saw some videos and reviews and actually havent seen any light on ..but is just to confirm because all the other models wp8 that i tried (8x..lumias..) they light up.

    Overall this is a great phone..only downside is the 4gb..
    8gb would be great.

    I know at least in the case of the Lumia 920, capacitive buttons are linked to the ambient light sensor. Do they light up in the dark?

    No..Not sure if it is an hardware problem or software..ive tried reset and update..no luck. They only light up when someone calls..

    they should light in the dark, because they are controlled by the light sensor, if there is light they stay off to preserve battery. I don't think you have a hardware problem, since they light when you get a call...
