Keyboard in android applications hides "back" button at the bottom of the screen. It is Ok when the app has its own back-button somewhere at the top (ex., instagram). But some apps hasn't. In this case to cancel an action I have to make some trick for the edit box to lost focus (and keyboard disappeared).

You can find this behavior in Firefox - tap address bar and try to return to previous page (ok, there is cross to the right of address bar, but try not use it:). (Real example - annoying search from yandex embedded in every app from But it is a little bit difficult to explain how to reproduce.)

You can hide the keyboard if you make a swipe gesture down on it.
