    I have a lock pattern on my phone and a bluetooth earpiece (voyager legend)

    When i make a call using my bluetooth or answer a call it unlocks my phone.
    So i end up pocket calling or texting random people/starting apps etc.

    Is there a way to stop this ?!? Ive never had issues with this on my previous devices but honestly i realy dont like the new marshmallow os. Feels way less customizable and a lot of options have been removed or are way harder to find in the settings menu.

    Im using a galaxy s5 neo. Running on marshmallow.(6.0.1)

    Welcome to Android Central! Is your screen lock set to None? If so, how about changing it to Swipe Only? That way, you wouldn't run the risk of pocket-dialing, since it's unlikely the initial screen would accidentally get swiped away.

    I have it locked with a pattern/model. It doesnt unlock by itself. It only unlocks when i answer or make a call using my bluetooth (voyager legend). And its in an otterbox commuter case.

    Hmm, how about using something like Touch Blocker as a workaround?

    I will try it this week. I find it sad tho. It worked so well on previous os.
