    The issue still persists for the analog triggers, when pressing them in slightly. After pressing them in enough they will be detected as gamepad input (though when releasing them they'll count as keyboard input again). Changing their deadzone and default button press point doesn't seem to affect this.
    A workaround for this is to not read keyboard input if the device is a handheld with a gamepad attached. It's not perfect but the odds of someone using a keyboard on Android while also having a gamepad attached are pretty slim.

    "&& (SystemInfo.deviceType != DeviceType.Handheld || (SystemInfo.deviceType == DeviceType.Handheld && Gamepad.current == null)"
