Other Power Button Issue

    I've had a 9 Pro since day one and a few weeks ago, I started noticing the camera kept opening when I pressed the lock button.

    At first I thought it was me, but now it's started happening multiple times per day.

    Not sure if there's a hardware issue with the button, or if the software is too sensitive but it seems to keep detecting a double press despite only being pressed once. I've had the double press to open camera disabled for about a week and it seems to be fine - not noticed any effect of a double press, like the screen locking and then waking up again - so I suspect it could be a software issue with the double press detection shortcut.

    I've seen a few others have the same problem on Reddit here: https://redd.it/mxfz8g

    This started happening when I was using and is still there on I've just re-enabled double press for camera and it's still happening.

    It's hard to reproduce, but happens at least a handful of times per day for me (was perfect for the first month or so of owning the phone).

    Anyone else got this issue?

    Hi, please submit the feedback as directed by @the_02

    Are you using any case on the device?
    Some cases might make the powerbutton too sensitive to presses

    Will report there too, thanks.

    I'm using the official case that came with the phone, phone and case are very clean so no dirt or anything getting in the way either

    My OP 9pro got that issue too. At least i changed the double tap on power button to nothing that the phone doesn't start the camera all the time.
    I don't think it's a hardware issue, because some other user are reporting it and my phone never fell down. Reboot doesn't help and factory reset isn't an option.

    I sent it for repair, now it's working fine. I don't think it's a hardware issue either, but according to the repair sheet, they have replaced the power button
