This phone has a crappy proximity sensor. You cannot fix this hardware problem.
nonsense. many phones have this type of proximity sensor and the problem is with the user. there are two reasons: a bad case that covers the sensor (then you have to manually enlarge the holes) or simply badly holding the phone during the conversation - it is recommended to keep the phone as far away from your head as possible during the conversation and not stick it to your face.

Hi, I am on the latest 12.1 build and trying to charge another phone using a type-c to type-c cable. The other phone charges my Poco f3 while I need the opposite. I attach photo of the problem. Has anyone tried this; the other phone is a Samsung.

This is the first time I have heard that I'm the issue, everything I have read before has stated that the POCO F3 has a cheap / ineffective proximity sensor that forces me to hold it in a way that I haven't had to ever hold a phone before.

I hold it that way in your picture because I have to for this phone, not because that is how most people hold a phone.

This problem has ceased to exist for me and many reddit users after going back to the factory case or making holes in a third-party case. Many Xiaomi and Samsung phones have a virtual proximity sensor - this is slowly becoming the norm if we want screens without notch in cheap phones. Try my tips or continue to get frustrated by the trivial problem in phone for 300$

I don't use a case.

I just hold the phone in an odd way, different from every other phone I've ever owned.

Download Sensor Test from Play Store (developer Efremov) and test your sensor - maybe it's time to send it for a repair. Mine is working very good on Arrow OS, Miui Global, Xiaomi.eu.

On Miui rom there is a trick for faulty proximity sensors. Add compass app to autostart and calibrate it in the app and proximity sensor will work like a charm.

Just updated to the recommended firmware and the new OTA update, and I've got a weird problem - all of my bluetooth pairings are still there, but none of them pair automatically any more. I need to go in manually and select the bluetooth device from the settings before it will connect. Anyone come across this before and know of a solution?

But this is not about whether I hold the phone to my head. Let me give you an example. I am in a meeting, the phone is on the table, someone calls, the name is displayed on the screen, I press power and I want the screen off. However, it is impossible to do this, the phone wakes up in half a second and continues to display that someone is calling. It is also important that the phone is still lying on the table at this moment. Something is wrong with the software.
To be sure, I also took off the case off and it is the same

Maybe if I set up a task on GitLab it will be fixed. We'll see.

I had previously installed LineageOS with android 11 and didn't have this problem. I installed everything clean with the latest firmwares

    Hey, does ArrowOS has "Press to Unlock" type option? I accidentally touch FP sensor alot.
    3
    Does it fix the battery life?

    I'm waiting on that before I take the plunge from 12.0.
    The battery life is pretty meh. But flashing baalam kernel fixes it. I am now on latest build, newest baalam, and have 23% battery left, 8 hours sot and charged over 2 days ago without turning off WiFi or anything.
    2
    Does anyone know how to turn off the screen while someone is calling? The phone is always waking up. If I press the power button the phone goes off but after a while it wakes up again and shows that someone is calling.
