Thanks to konnector ||||Update: This works on the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 also. I just confirmed it.
Here's a quick tutorial I have to keep your Home button from turning on in your pocket. I was having this problem it was killing my battery. I found the solution I figured I'd share it with you. Follow the steps.
Here is a link to my video tutorial.
