    So I'm watching a video or writing an important text message and I go to adjust the volume for my video/music. I hit the volume key and suddenly, the entire screen is covered up by the volume and skipping controls. I mean, who thought THAT was a good idea?

    It wouldn't be too bad if the media controls stayed for a shorter amount of time, but I think there should be a better way of adjusting the volume for media.

    Maybe the buttons should just show up on the side of the screen? Or along the top/bottom?

    Agreed. I wish that there was a list somewhere that we could put these deficiencies.

    Yea a lot of people here vented about this and started threads already.

    Personally, I think the black box should be translucent. iOS got this right.

    I believe that we don't need that at all. The side keys do everything for me. Press repeatedly/volume up or down, press and hold/skip track, middle key/play&pause.

    I absolutely HATE that pop up media screen! It is always getting in the way. Maybe if it were a small banner at the top or bottom, that may be better.

    Yup, they should be smaller or dismissable, because on Q10 it lays over whole screen and I can't do anything when changing volume.
    I'd move it to top stripe and perhaps allow option to switch them off as you can do Previous-Play-Next without onscreen box.

    Agree that it is totally unnecessary for a large pop-up to be right in the middle of the screen. Lot of ways it should have been done.

    Hope that in a future update we see this change.

    I want it small and at the top or bottom. Also an option to turn it off altogether would be nice

    OMG I thought I'm the only one getting angry about this f****ing pop-up. Absolutely bulls**t! Not even an option to slide it away. Who invented that crap?!

    Agreed. That popup is annoying, intrusive, and a time waster.

    It's really irritating. I hope they add an option to disable it or make it far more minimal at least.

    I agree. It could at least go in a corner and be smaller.
