    Navi bar hiding works when playing recorded videos within the picture menu-camera roll, independent of the file app. Or maybe they use the same code (not an expert). Anyway, I don't think MS will release an update for L630/635 to enhance user experience. We must buy a hd res phone with software rendered nav bar (ex. L730/735 or 830).

    Yea this is the only thing I really hate about the phone. Just dimming and shrinking them would go a long way in video and game apps.

    What a joke :(

    I bought a new Windows Phone today because I really enjoyed Windows 8 and 10 on the desktop. I'm a C# developer so I'm already heavily invested in Microsoft technologies and I really wanted to see windows phone be great. After 15 minute of setting up the phone/getting apps updated I try to watch a video - and I'm stuck with those damn buttons at full brightness.

    The first thing my wife said was, 'Don't those go away?'

    No, no they don't. We couldn't believe it. Now, for local content, you can download the 'File' app, and use that to magically play the video without the bar (which, despite some of the nonsense posted in this thread, clearly show that there is no technical limitation preventing this....it's possible). But for everything else - like Netflix - there doesn't seem to be any way to do this.

    Not only am I taking this phone back for an Android, everyone that I've shown it too (my wife, and two co-workers) can't believe that there is no way to hide the buttons. That's four people who are convinced Windows sucks on the phone. When you've got 1-2% marketshare - you need to be able to wow other people when you show off what your phone can do. It's disappointing, both because I *almost* love this phone, and because I want to see Windows succeed.

    Maybe someone should sell an appropriately sized piece of plastic tape owners of these 'smartphones' can purchase to strategically block out the buttons?

    Wow, how much hate in that little heart.

    It's just one thing in the whole ecosystem. I know, it pisses me too, but I'm not that pissed to get another phone.

    BTW, a question for those who has downloaded Win10:
    Does the bar hide in Win10? If not, fill requests in the insider app. Lets show Microsoft how much this sucks.
