I got the SIM for my L5 from my provider, an O2 outlet here in Germany. Internet works fine with 4G. But when I do a phone call and put the L5 to my ear this menu of the upper part opens and closes all the time. How this could be avoided?
I haven’t gotten my L5 yet, so this is an ignorant take, but in some models of Android, it can be helpful to push the power button to darken the screen during the call. Then the screen will only light up and respond to touches when the power button is pressed again. Seems plausible that the L5 would work this way too? Or at least it should be possible to make it work that way through custom configuration.
It is visible in the upper status line where all the stati of network etc. are shown, that the mic and cam are disabled. But, not in the dialer app as a “strong visual feedback”. This seems to me a valid change request, for example adding to the message line:
The call is not encrypted.
The call is with micro switched to OFF
Yes it does, but if you concentrate on the dial pad or the contacts you can miss it, as I did. A clear message on the screen in the call would be better.
Re/ the sensor: it switches off the screen when you are 1cm away (you can test it with your hand while in a call). This seems to be late or it depends on the position of the sensor relatively to your head/ear.
