Can someone confirm that this is present on yours X5III? Wondering if this is by design or some fault.
I'm using barometer to log an altitude of my trips..

->
Open app showing barometer data (preferably Phyphox), run pressure test.
Tapping or making pressure to middle part of the display makes pressure go peaking high and low. Like this:

I tried the same thing on my old X Compact and it does the same thing. Only the sensor on XC has a lot slower readout so it does not show so rapidly and sometimes it smooth it out. Well, need to be more soft on tapping while also recording altitude with barometet :)) thx for replies

    Fun fact: this water-tight seal, plus a barometric sensor, has been used by apps to simulate features like the side squeeze Pixels had from series 2 thru 3a.

    Probably normal, you're changing the internal pressure when you do that.

    Means the watertight seal still intact.
