    I find this to be a huge problem, but haven't seen any other complaints about this... when using the phone (As a phone), I frequently find that my ear or the side of my face that's touching the screen is causing the mute or hold (or others) buttons to be pressed which needless to say causes big problems when it's being done unintentionally.

    Anybody else have this problem/issue and know anything that can be done about it? Yes, I can hit the home screen after dialing, but it's still a problem because my ear/face is potentially hitting other Apps, or music to play or something else instead... plus I still want the ability to actually pause, intentionally or mute...

    Wow!! And i thougbt ii was the only one this had ever happened too..

    Atleast 90% of my phone conversations that I have with people are always put on hold.

    Even when using the loudspeaker option it manages to place calls on hold still.

    No one can explain or answer how to fix it..

    This is a great idea. I have the same problem too. and I even end calls with my chin. which we could customize where buttons should be.

    I installed the pixel phone apk. The placement of the buttons are different.

    I used to face lot of issues with calls before, but none now.

    I took the advice of locking the screen. Wonderful thanks for the suggestion.

    Stunning that this has still not been addressed.
    Disappointing the only suggestions are to somehow bow down to the technology and change the way you handle the phone. Technology to serve us, not command us.
    Amazing more people don't bring this up, or worse, insist there's no problem.

    If anyone finds a fix, PLEASE take the time to post.

    Help! I've tried Googling the answer, but my Alcatel still does crazy stuff while I'm on a call! I went to Settings, but there's no My Device TO turn on Smart Screen! Then, I searched for my Phone's App to adjust Call Settings, but I have NO phone app! I hate taking phone calls as all sorts of buttons activate & cause chaos! Anyone have any insight?!🤔😥

    Welcome to Android Central! You should probably create a new thread with your question, since this old thread is in the Nexus 6 forum, and your issue seems to be different.

    That being said, it would be helpful to describe in more detail the crazy stuff the phone is doing.
