SadSoul, 01 Mar 2019Not missing any point. It's just that I PREFER a working button over a dead one anyday. Personally I PREFER a dead nuclear button over a working one any day.

The one reason I left Samsung and carrier phones. Apps and buttons forced down your throat.
SadSoul, 23 Feb 2019So you are advertising a particular "link" to disable Bixby services using adb? NOT INTERESTED... moreYou seem to miss the point...
bxActions (and the 1000 other like it you mention) RELY on Bixby to be there to make the button do something sensible.
SURE this is better than default, And SURE it would be better if Samsung offered that directly.
...But MUCH better would be if they allowed us to remove Bixby directly through the phones UI.
And had the button usage completely independent of Bixby, and user selectable of course.
But as they do not offer these options, at the least it IS possible to get rid of Bixby using ADB...
I don't care if people use my link or another, as long as they find out how to get rid of the junk (with no ads I actually have expenses and not income by trying to help people...)
And I can just wonder how the action of the button becomes "off topic" to remapping the button in your universe.

Also, it's way better to remap it completely using bxActions/ButtonMapper with single/double/long press actions without letting Bixby voice/Bixby to launch using those apps than turning it into a dead button. I simply wished Samsung gave an option officially to stay away from Bixby completely and made the Button entirely re-mappable as per users choice that is no way happening.
Nice try but since it's going way off topic, it's better not to discuss out of context, at least I WILL NOT.

I suggest to do a clean Android disable (well "disable-user")

Here the thread is about OFFICALLY remapping the bixby where you CANNOT get rid of it and that sucks.
I've never pressed the Bixby button, even though my left thumb rests on it all the time (in portrait mode).
Probably because I use the Samsung Protective Standing Cover (MIL-STD-810G-516.7 compliant).
I might check it out 1 day, but it isn't a priority.
Good, that's one entry down in my reason-to-not-get-a-samsung-phone list
Its good that bixby is here..at least Google will be on its toes...
Also only bixby allows you to lock you phone by voice.. Google assistant just googles it
Anonymous, 22 Feb 2019How about deleting this nonsense assistant where Google is wayyyyyy better??Google is better, but Bixby is the only assistant that work offline. Its an assistant that really live in the device. Device control is a nifty feature tbh. You cant do that with Google assistant.

My point is that we (at the least) CAN get rid of Bixby, without the need of rooting, flashing or the like. And that leaves the button dead - but though bad, it is better than launching Bixby...
(all you need is a PC and a usb-cable see e.g. https://eskerahn.dk/?p=2462 )

I talked about OFFICIAL WAYS to remap the button newly introduced in the S10 in relation to the thread that you CANNOT get rid of Bixby no matter which way you try. I use bxactions , buttonmapper etc. to do so in my Note 9 but those apps have their fair share of issues being 3rd party.

Should get a petition together to get Samsung to stop with the Bixby shenanigans as no one really wants it.
Not way to get rid of Bixby.
If double press is set to launch an app, single press will have to be kept to launch Bixby.
if single press is set to launch an app, double press will have to kept to launch Bixby.
Moreover, pressing and holding the Bixby button will launch Bixby voice no matter what.

Do what I did and get a Mate 20 Pro (since Samsung clearly liked it so much they made an ugly cousin)
