Has anyone experienced the FP5 actually responding to the proximity sensor?
Is this proximity sensor supposed to be active outside of making calls, to prevent input when the phone is in a pocket?
According to the Internet, the fairphone 5 has a proximity sensor. I’ve been using the phone for almost 3 weeks now, and I assumed from the experience of using it that it does not have a proximity sensor.
I have never seen it display any kind of notice about ignoring touch input due to proximity detection like I saw frequently on my Galaxy S9+. If I hover my finger over the 3 little rectangles near the speaker while the screen is unlocked, I’d expect it to give me a warning. I am constantly being bothered by the phone screen waking in my pocket and detecting my thigh as a finger. Sometimes, I accidentally touch the fingerprint sensor when I put the phone in my pocket, and then it is unlocked in there and taking input from my thigh. It has been frustrating to say the least.
I think I may be experiencing some of this:
And I’m also having the tap to wake setting turn off when I restart the phone.
Also, letting specific Messages conversations through scheduled do-not-disturb doesn’t work. The do not disturb settings appear to be such that I could fully automate my silent mode by using calendar events, but the feature is broken!
All these issues along with the screen brightness problem are ruining the experience of using this phone! I feel like I signed up for the level of functionality and bugginess Android had in 2012!
