    My son has an Honor 7 and wants to wear it in a plastic/elastic armband when he goes for a jog. But when he puts the phone in the plastic case, he gets the message "do not cover the top of the screen - Make sure the screen is clean - You can also press the power and volume buttons to disable this mode". But this does not help. Any suggestions?

    Yeah, have same problem. I just turn off blocking but still when I want to change something on phone then I need to fold back top of armband. I think it's impossible to change that without root. Or he can use transparent armband.

    So would I.
    It's a really really really annoying feature that some muppet of a developer decided to design in.
    I have a transparent armband, and a transparent bike case, and it still does it.
    It's also a pain with the buttons on my P8 to disable it EVERY ********** time GRRRR! :-

    The feature is supposed to be for when you have it in your pocket or in a bag so that you don't butt dial somebody or so it doesn't change your settings or call somebody or charge your account that's what it's for and you can disable that is called touch in your settings so that "Muppet" of a developer actually cure the but the problem other than having a phone lock on or a password cuz a lot of people don't do that we ain't got nothing to hide we put the locks on our PayPal XD you would have been thanking that "muppet" like 10 years ago

    "Smart assist" is just the title of that group of settings selections (on my phone at least). For me the switch to turn it off is the "More..." selection under the smart assist heading.

    Yeah, I'm having this issue too. It wasn't a big deal before but now, it started doing it when its in my bike's phone mount.

    My phone mount doesn't even cover much of the top. Just the corners of the phone. I kinda need out to map check for my courier work.

    I think I just found it. I'm using a huawei y3ii and under accessibility, I found anti-inadvertently function. Turned it off and now I'm free again.
