    I don't use a lock screen, but incoming calls require that I slide to accept the call. I'd prefer (as on my bionic) to simply hit "accept". any way to get rid of the "swipe-to-answer" feature?

    I think the reason for the swipe to unlock is similar for the reason we have swipe to unlock lockscreens; so you don't answer the phone with your butt. A button can easily be hit by sitting in your pocket hitting against your leg, but a swipe to answer is much more difficult to have accidentally happen.

    And there is no way to change it to a button without heavy modification to the UI apk elements.

    What I do is simply say "answer" or "reject" when I get an incoming call.

    Within the s-voice app if you enable the option to control apps via voice there are a lot of things you can do. It may not work for you, but it's an option.

    I know on the AT&T device, you can go into the Phone display, then go Menu, Call Settings, Call answering/ending. You can check an option here to let you press the Home key to answer incoming calls. That's about the only way I know in the stock OS. Here's what it looks like on AT&T:

    Have you tried ShakeCall? Answer and end the call by shaking the phone.

    This is an easy fix. Go to : settings, accesibility, and enable the one touch option . Done.

    Everybdy always says this on all posts about wanting tap to answer. This does not give that. People want to simply tap Accept. Not waving your hand over it, or speaking anything. Just tap a box that says ANSWER. Smart call does not do that. And apps that do, like HD Caller ID always get broken with every Android update and it takes a long time for them to fix it. And until it is fixed, it makes it nearly impossible to answer because pressing Accept does not answer the phone. But it makes the phone THINK it is answered and it hijacks the regular phone app. So, the only way to answer the phone is to try to quickly close HD caller ID entirely, and then get to your phone app manually to do the regular annoying swipe. By then, your call is surely into voice mail.

    In the new Samsung One UI, it can be found at Settings > Accessibility > Interaction and dexterity > Assistant menu > Enable it, then scroll down to "Single tap to swipe" and Enable it, after that you can scroll back up to the top and Disable the "Assistant menu", otherwise you will have that circle on your screen.. and you can notice the "Single tap to swipe" remains "On" even with the "Assistant menu" disabled.
