I do calls through Bluetooth and there are time I want to access the phone during the call. Only way to get screen back on is keep hitting the power button.

Is there a way to keep the screen on during a call?

Yeah, with Tasker.
I have a profile set up exactly for this.

Code:
Profile: Screen On Headset (25)
    State: Call [ Type:Any Number:* ]
    State: BT Connected[Name:Jabra Evolve 75 Address:70:BF:92:05:4D:C3 ]
    Enter: Screen On (23)
    A1: Display Timeout [ Secs:0 Mins:0 Hours:18 ]
    A2: Notify [ Title:Screen On Text:Screen On Icon:hd_aaa_ext_bulb Number:0 Permanent:Off Priority:5 Repeat Alert:Off LED Colour:Red LED Rate:0 Sound File: Vibration Pattern: Category:%BATT ]
  
    Exit: Screen Normal (26)
    A1: Display Timeout [ Secs:0 Mins:1 Hours:0 ]
    A2: Notify Cancel [ Title:Screen On Warn Not Exist:On ]

How do you get in to do that? Thank you

Well... Like I wrote. You create a profile that keeps your screen on when on a call and connected to a specific blue tooth headset.
When the call is ended the exit task resets the screen time out to 1min.
I also have a little pop up saying "Screen On", but that's not a must.

Do you know Tasker?
Have you worked with it?

Yeah this is kinda annoying OnePlus has the screen off and unresponsive unless you got the power button. My other devices I have I could double tap the screen to wake.

Typically, only time I'm actually ON a call, is while I'm at home anyway, my method of doing this is (particularly if you do not have a rooted phone):

1. developer options -> stay awake (while charging)
2. plug phone into charger.
3. make call, screen stays on.

I too find it annoying not being able to simply double tap my screen on this phone and have to use the power button (especially when you get soooo used to double tapping the screen to turn it on).

    You can probably use Tasker for this

    As has been said...
