Default [Q] question virtual key

Hi all I would like to buy a used nexus 4 of 10.10.2013, at the price of 150 euro European warranty, I just doubt the seller declares that the virtual keys on the phone do not work and everything else works before you buy i surely you'll see the phone, so i wanted to know, there is pssibilitą or a way to figure out if the problem is with the virtual keys or the screen without first changing rom or restore the phone, that is immediate??
You can remove the virtual keys to use the cell with the only home to see if the part of the screen where the buttons are working?

Sorry for my bad english,i use google translate

Download the app "phone tester". It has a function called " multi-touch test". You can just move your finger over the whole screen to check for any blank spots.

Does the phone come completely stock? Because sometimes s2w and d2w cause problems like this.

If your phone has a custom kernel, you can activate and s2w d2w, if your phone has the stock kernel that is not possible. If your phone there are s2w and d2w with phone The application tester will give error in the area of soft keys when you head to the screen?

The app I mentioned is just to see if and where there are blank spots.

I've made the experience that d2w after sometimes makes the left and right side of the screen unresponsive. Others might have made other observations.

Does touch input work on the complete screen? There's a button on top to make the touch test run in full screen so you can test all borders and edges. If it does I guess flashing a complete stock image should solve the issues.

It works all the touch screen, the problem is that the keys back - home - menu, they do not work it vertically horizontally into the side of the phone where they are placed, they only work if I turn the phone and I get them to appear in the side where you is the camera.
