    No pocket mode in the settings. This would be helpful if someone makes a video call the front camera popsup which could damage the phone

    This is seen in the Oneplus 7 Pro while reviewing Google Duo calls. It's not ideal for when it's in the pocket. Please provide an update to detect pocket mode and not pop the camera up in any such scenarios.

    Thank you.

    Without a pocket mode, if we have the phone in the pocket and someone call us by videocall (on Duo or WhatsApp), thr front camera automatically opens! And we see what can happen...

    I can't understand why (at least) 7 Pro doesn't have the pocket mode.

    There's an extremely simple way to avoid the situation of the camera opening when having the phone on the pocket: just don't give permission to Duo and WhatsApp of accessing the camera!

    Ok, this doesn't mean that OnePlus doesn't need to get a workaround, and for me is the perfect temporary solution since i don't do videocalls. Anyway, this way if someone decided to videocall me, i won't have problems with the camera :)

    I have test that pocket mode is enabled defaultly. But it is not effective when power button is pressed, just for tap screen. It is not enough.

    dear OnePlus,

    not having a pocket mode ist a serious game changer, and I'm considering not buying op anymore. it is worsening my user experience, especially since you guys are neither commenting on the issue nor fixing it.

    I have my 7 pro on my pocket, if the camera pops out because of an incoming video call on a "tight jeans it could result in camera mechanism damage.

    I'm sure OnePlus can come up with a way that a pocket mode.
