nway im flashing back to cardinal os. I noticed that if you have a call in progress your voice has an echo or you hear what u have been said.

screen locked will activate even though your watching movies or videos. supposedly it will activate if u do nothing.. it shouldnt activate when you are watching videos and sort of

thats y im reverting back or flashing back to cardinal os which is created also by @MaheshTechnicals

so far cardinal os has no issue at all.
