Side Keys

Side Keys are simply buttons on the side of the phone, designed to be used by your fingertips while holding the phone in your hand - one-handed operation.

Many phones have up/down keys or switches that can be used to adjust volume and scroll through menu options. Some also have a "Select" or "OK" button. Some also have a dedicated Voice-Memo key on the side.
