Default G2 post-call lock/security hole...

Hello all,

New (T-Mobile US stock ROM) G2 user here, coming from a multitude of previous Android devices (most recently a GS3). Anyway, I've noticed that there's a potential security issue while using the phone...

I've noticed that when you end a call (at least one the I've originated), that I can easily navigate to the home screen and beyond. The Samsung GS3 sends you back to your security screen once you press end. This would be a problem if you're 'Apple picked' mid call, where the thief could potentially operate the phone if it's grabbed out of someone's hand while they're mid-call.

Is there a setting that I'm missing, or did LG miss this one?

there are more holes bro like factory reset, or if running custom recovvery.

the on call one you can fix by using something like tasker, set if lockscreen, on call then relock after all
