    Hi everyone.
    while I was talking with other friends (with older OP devices) I noticed that my OP7 Pro does not have the pocket mode.
    Is there a particular reason?

    Regards

    Pop up camera.

    Front camera is inside the phone and pocket mode works with front camera..

    I think it's because of the proximity sensor used.. This is something like the one used with xiaomi mi mix, sonic proximity sensor that only works the human skin.. Try to make a test with the proximity sensor in some object.

    This also affects my calling experience. I got my Oneplus 7 Pro today and made a phone call. After the call my phone was in setting and was changing sim card name. I would assume this is because the screen did not turn off while I was holding the phone against my cheek?

    it's not the case. proximity sensor works with any object. I tried with a plastic card when on the engineer test mode

    I have the same question. My 6T had a very useful pocket mode and the new 7 Pro does not. Today I noticed something fundamentally wrong with the lack of implementation of said mode and the pop-up camera. I had my 7 Pro on my pocket and my girlfriend video called me using Google Duo, the camera popped out inside my pocket while receiving the call notification. Nothing bad happened in this case because I had loose pants on, but what about a scenario when someone has tight jeans or something?... If the camera pops out because of an incoming video call on a "tight jeans/pants scenario" it could result in camera mechanism damage.

    I'm sure OnePlus can come up with a way that a pocket-mode (sensor data, AI, misc algorithms) can be implemented on the 7 Pro to delay the pop-up camera trigger until the phone gets taken out of the pocket. This would be one very useful OTA patch/update.

    Re pocket mode, I would like to see this implemented with the option to increase the ringer volume and vibration intensity with the phone in a pocket or bag.

    They really need to get both pocket mode and face detection in a call working. Both of these severely affect the usability of the phone

    Guys, I'm new to OnePlus.
    Could you please explain me what the pocket mode is and what it's supposed to do? Everyone is screaming for the pocket mode in almost every thread but I have no idea what it actually is :D

    Pocket mode is when's the phone uses the proximity sensor and the gyroscope to know when is inside a pocket and force the screen offf avoiding unwanted screen inputs.
