    I'm having issues with the proximity sensor on my Oneplus 8 Pro.
    It's common during calls that the device register not intended commands.
    Please help me solve this annoying issue.

    While not a proper solution, it does help if I place the phone near my left ear instead of right during a call. The placement of the proximity sensor is such that the left ear is better suited for calls. The sensor is placed to the right of the top speaker, so it faces the side of your head while on a call, if you place the phone near your left ear.

    I'll try to do that.
    Let's see if I can change a long habit.

    I do get that. It's tough to change it. I haven't been able to. And it's a bigger hassle at night, with the minimum brightness still bright enough to strain your eyes, as the screen is visible around the corners.
