I am guessing more people have this but don't realize it because the screen will turn off if you navigate away from the In-Call UI to another app or to the home screen. It is a bug though and I hope Samsung deals with it in the next update.
Thank you so much for responding. Makes me feel better that I'm not crazy! 😅
Can others test and confirm for us so we can maybe document and report to Samsung for a fix?
BTW for what it's worth, as a workaround, you can hit the home button to put the in call UI out of focus and then let the phone sleep, it stops the waking up. Down side of course, no proximity action and the nuisance of turning on, then bringing up UI to mute and unmute, very annoying on meetings for work!
Any others please test and report for us? Thanks you!
