Sound Call Volume During Call

    EchoPark , Dec 2, 2016 :
    During calls can't increase volume when screen is off. But you can if you take the phone away from your face. Is this just me, known issue, or something in my settings that I can change?

    I have the same issue, please fix. All other phones I had did this, because it's intuitive. Different calls and callers have different speaking volumes - so I adjust the volume as I speak - and I don't need the display to do so, besides you have to interrupt your conversation.

    Please fix.

    ps. Same way - ist it possible to adjust music volume when display is off? I didn't test, but I bet it doesn't.

    Best would be to have a checkbox in button settings: "Lock volume button with display on/off"

    Is there a workaround to fix this problem? Is it the same on O2O4.0 as well?
    I am currently on 3.5.4 OP3T. Pls help.

    Yep this is a problem.
    I have to unlock my phone to change the volume, it should work without having to unlock it :/

    OK just noticed it myself... that is probably one of the stupid things to deal with...
    why it's there and why it isn't taken care of... I don't understand :)

    one wants to adjust volume and for that you have to get the feedback to properly adjust instead of putting it off of your ear and change it by guessing...

    is there any copyright thing involved in it?

    any idea where to get the official response about it? stupid question though... this community should have an official response itself.. but I tried to find in old threads but nothing clear if it's affecting only certain sets or every set

    Best workaround I've found is to use a headset.

    If you don't like headsets, you can maybe start grabbing your phone using the fingerprint reader. It would unlock it in the process and allow you to adjust the volume.

    Have this problem on Oneplus5
    Cant adjust volume during call with screen off (on ear) and can while screen on (pulling phone away from face).

    In my case, this seems to be triggered by any OTA update process... factory resetting the phone keeps the latest version installed and solves the problem till next OTA update...
    after the next Ota the problm is back there again!

    please help/fix!

    Same here. This is a 1 year old thread and still no fix to this.
    It's a pretty basic function of a phone that should work.

    This issue has been addressed on OP3 in the latest open beta update 37. If successful it should be applied to the next stable update for op3/t.
