Although I have not encountered the fingerprint sensor to unlock phoneby itself in pocket as some on this forum has, I believe the screen is overly sensitive even when I have pocket mode turned on.

The phone would go into emergency call mode while in my pocket and input numerous numbers or sometimws change my notification settings or turn on off Bluetooth, put in airplane mode, etc. If I forget to lock my phone before putting in pocket the phone has done quite a few mischievous things.

Pls desensitized the screen when it's in pocket mode esp if the phone is upside down.


  • I also have this problem even though pocket mode is enabled it seems to not kick in sometimes.

    It works most of the time but on hot days when my pocket gets a little sweaty it doesn't work.

  • Same problem here. Phone unlocks in pocket.

  • Hey @Sauyon,

    The next upcoming update will rectify this issue. Stay tuned!

  • @Mansi_ASUS Any ETA when this update is coming? This has happened a few times now, one time the phone even unlocked somehow.
