    I use my phone a ton for calls , imagine that .

    Lately when I put a call on speaker, the screen will not turn off. It will not time out and even if I press the power button to shut the screen off manually, it just comes right back on.

    Has anyone else experienced this and if so have you been able to correct it?

    p.s. this has only been happening in the past week or so and I can't think of anything I did or any updates that would have caused this.

    This happens to me as well.

    I don't know if it's a feature or a bug, but to resolve it press the home button to return to your home screen. Pressing the power button (or allowing the screen to timeout) will turn the screen off and it will stay off.

    I think you'll find the screen won't turn off because you may need access to the keypad.
    Also the only reason the screen turns off near your face is because of the sensor on the front of the phone so not a bug or design floor

    I had this same issue if you want it to completely go away uninstall Samsung pay. I liked Samsung pay but this issue bothered me so much I can live without it.

    This seems to be something with the Nougat update. It is happening on Note 5 devices as well. I've read that a FDR fixes it. I'm not bothered enough by this to start over.

    It's great that you found something that works for your install. I like SP too much to dump it. I'll continue hitting HOME and then switching the display off until Samsung pushes a fix.

    This is definitely Samsung Pay app
    And it's happening only when you adding your card to favorite cart's.
    Sad because I liked SP very much
    Should be some fix.

    Soundman hit the nail on the head, usually if you are on speaker, you tap stuff like press 1 for this option or press 2 for that option.. You can also read messages, play games etc during the call.
