Well this is a first. I enjoy playing games on my phone as most people do, especially console emulators, but I have never seen one person go to such an extreme. Android user Cary Golomb decided that he needed to optimize his phone for gaming, so he decided to remove the unnecessary keys on his keyboard. After taking a knife to the keys he didn’t need, he painted the keyboard over with black and gave it a slicker look. Keep in mind that the phone is still fully function-able without a keyboard as well.

I do not recommend trying this on your Samsung Epic 4G because you will not only void the warranty, but probably screw up your keyboard in the process. Your resell value will also highly go down, so if you’re going to do it, make sure you know what you are doing and what you are getting yourself into. Some hard-core gamers will find this mod very enticing and make take the chance. In the mean time, check out the video below on this mod.
