In the interest of helping diagnose the echo problem, I wanted to make sure first of all it wasn't hardware or the modem file
I have 2x galaxy s6 phones. both never had the echo on stock firmware. I moved one onto lineageos official 14.1, and soon after putting lineageos 14.1 I had people telling me they were hearing themselves echoing back , although I can't hear it from my side using the galaxy s6.
I presumed it was related to the otterbox defender case, or a hardware issue with the phone, or a problem relating to the modem file version.
Now I put this lineageos16 unofficial build from this thread onto both my stock s6 and the one which was already running lineageos14.1. My method was to fully flash the very latest official firmware from my network provider first to both phones, to make sure there was no doubt about the modem file, then apply twrp and then this firmware.
They now both have this exact echo problem, which leads me to believe it's not the modem file or hardware, that it must be the rom. if I find a spare few hours, I may flash them back to stock to help prove that, but the above is pretty conclusive for me

I have a S6E with baseband G925FXXU6ERC8 / I use 3G / I have an H3G Italy SIM.
Please test if you switch to 2G only the issue remains. Share this, thanks.
To answer this question , if I set my preferred network to 2g, it cannot get any mobile signal at all on UK h3g, have driven around to make sure its not just a bad coverage area. Don't know if that's a ROM issue or not, can anyone else test?

Is there a changelog? I see the posts mentioning 2 things specifically, but it would be nice to know if there's an exact changelog - regardless, I'm delighted to see hotspot fixed

There are some unusual things about the lock screen , I am using pattern lock , and also have fingerprint registered. I have the advanced 'power button instantly locks' option turned on. When you wake up the phone to use it, i can see the pattern dots waiting, and a clock in the background, but trying to touch the screen and draw the pattern does nothing, if I press power, the background clock goes away, and now i can use pattern or fingerprint.
