Zenfone6_BoyWe get that is what you want. And we also get that it is partially because the proximity sensor is not always accurate on Zenfone 6. But which of these are more important to address if you had to choose?
Is there any fixes for this?
Ideally, I want my power button to be the be all-end-all of turning on and off the screen during a call.
I must be holding the phone wrong because the screen turns on all the time during a call, and sometimes I turn on Airplane Mode accidentally which ends the call - all with my ear! Very frustrating.
AlaudeenPerhaps the better decision would have been to not include a Proximity sensor at all, if there was no room to place it towards the middle (flip camera and all)?
Hey Zenfone6_Boy Buddy, We are telling this problem past 3 months, but no use. The Asus team is trying to convince everyone and they doesn't feel this is not a problem at all. But at daily use, we are the one facing problem, since it is only app everyone using frequently. The main problem is because of poor Proximity sensor installed in the Phone and that too not in a correct placement.
So we are suggesting to make use of power button for screen Off/On while in call screen manually instead automatically. But our suggestions goes to trash. What to do, It's all fate. We have to wait for 2 - 3 months for the complete review before buying any new mobile. No eagerness anymore. It's all beacuase of our stupidity.
This specific case has been raised internally, so that if you turn proximity off in the Call Screen settings, it should generally remain off.
But it's like scratching by your leg behind your ear and what more this will not help users who do not use Asus Dialer and use another Dialer.
As for all other cases, proximity inconsistencies, we'll feedback and hopefully devs can improve that.
As I said I very much doubt that the problems with the proximity sensor will be solved (with all its limiting factors like location, sensitivity, ...), so ensuring a standard Power button behavior during call would be a quick and easy solution.
So far, no one except Asus representatives has advocated a solution chosen by Asus, there is no single user to suit the current behavior of power button. It sounds to me as if your ZF6 developers don't even use it for making calls, otherwise I can't explain it at all.
_jis_Me too suggest the same.
Big Thanks for the perfect summary, as usual 🙂
For others, item 2 is still preferred , regardless of item 1.
Yes, I join a second group that would welcome the standard behavior of the Power button during a call.
But if the developers tune the Proximity sensor better too, it will of course also be welcome.
