    Default Sudden switch to speakerphone mid call

    Several times now since the update while talking on the phone it has switched to speakerphone. Has anyone else experienced this or do I have unusually precise cheek bones?

    Is the screen turning off when you hold the phone to your ear during a call? If not, there might be a problem with the proximity sensor. Make sure it isn't covered (by a case, or grim, or a dirty screen protector)--it should be right near the front-facing camera.

    is the proximity sensor the little circle next to the camera lens?

    On page 8 of the manual, it shows that the proximity sensor is right next to the notification LED.

    Thanks for the responses. I'll try to pay attention to what the screen's doing next time I use the phone, which isn't all that often.

    You're not alone. Mine does it too several times... And the screen is off when it happens close to my ear. It's deafening... I haven't done a factory reset yet. Don't feel like setting up my phone again.

    I haven't noticed it in a while, but I don't really use it as a phone all that often.
