    After the Update to OxygenOS 4.0/4.0.1, i get the sane error again. I can still unlock my phone while it is in pocket mode. If i scan a finger it vibrates and unlock.
    The error was fixed while i was using 3.2.8.

    Anyone else?

    I've had the same issue today. OP3 has been fine for quite some time, today its been hot all day, even when idle on my desk and has drained the battery like nobody's business.

    Affects both the 3:

    And the 3T:

    The fix: Kick Facebook.

    Just a heads up - upgraded to Nougat - the pocket problem returned as it appears the "pocket mode" switch is disabled by default. Just need to re-enable it.

    my OP3T has that problem... with 4.0.1

    today was burning as hell, the reason was Spotify that was maintaning the device awake...

    bad optimisation Spotify... No FB shit installed

    I own a 3T, but I think this does not make any difference.
    Regarding the issue descriped in the first post, at least I can confirm that this issue is still? fixed. If I cover the light sensor while trying to unlock the phone using the finger print sensor, the device does nothing (no vibration which would indicate that the finger print scanner would be used). I would assume that the scanner is correctly deactivated in the "pocket mode".
    So...in respect to your question: Yes - it is (still) fixed in 4.0.2.

    Edit: I was wrong.

    I own a OP3, on OxygenOS 4.0.2 and pocket mode was NOT enabled by default.
    And the phone did get freakishly hot when in pocket and the screen is facing my leg.

    You just have to go Settings > Advanced > Pocket Mode and enable it.
    The problem is IS fixed.

    Have you all re-enable pocket mode? If it's not working try booting into safe mode and try it again, if not try a factory reset as there shouldn't be an issue with it on this rom.

    Jesus christ, thank you
    I don't know what idiot thought it would be a good idea to turn this off by default, but that was an idiotic decision, especially given the fact that it had always been on by default previously.
