How can I accept and reject calls on Android using a hard key, not touch?

DrSunil Vaswani April 3, 2013

Can I accept calls on Android by pressing a hard key instead of right-swipe? Is there a setting either by default in Android or custom (using an app) by which one can use a hard key to accept call instead of touch?

Also can rejecting be done using one of the hard keys? Alternatively is voice-guided accepting of calls possible?!

    What is difference between Home button and main-menu button in Android?

    You can reject a call with a dobule click on "turn off button" (mostly on top or on the side of phone).

    Some roms have that feature integrated. If you're into installing roms, try that.

      Kindly specify option to activate hard-key enabled call accepting in myLock as it was not noticed in it's configuration

      Infact, you can also check Call settings.. Samsung phones have options to use Home button to Answer calls and Power button to disconnect/reject calls...

    This is an impossible question to answer without details of the phone etc.

    please provide more details of the phone you are using. this is mostly done through the setting in the call and some models might not have this feature while some may have.
