    I too noticed the same prob. I kept it in my pocket and after 1 hour i felt my phone warm due to which i had to take it out.

    Its a minor issue, and tbh the only issue I have come across with the phone. Its happened to me maybe once or twice only, its not a regular thing and its not insurmountable to resolve via a case if you really wanted to.

    HydrogenOS has a setting, Pocket Mode, to deactivate the fingerprint reader and screen while in a pocket.

    Km
    Then bump leg against a corner or any thing hard = screen crack !
    Screen must be inwards in all pockets....

    Same issue must exist on all OnePlus units with finger print gizmo.
    Why it needs to be on back side of cellphone as solves problem partly.

    Same problem with OPO and the gesture thing, will start led light on it's own in pockets.
    As it's hardware that are running despite it is turned off.Expected.

    Hard reset solved it for me. No need for update or proximity sensor wizardry.

    Just do the hard reset and it's fixed. Or wait for 3.2.0 in next two days.

    I've experienced similar problem, after I turn gesture off it's getting a lot better, no more battery drain or constantly heat up (though sometimes I still feel my OP3 warm in my pocket).
    I'm running Oxygen 3.1.2

    Yeah. I noticed that too. So I turned off ambient display & the issue was resolved.

    What is hard reset? Factory reset? Or clear data and cache in recovery?

    I'm seeing this problem but so far not lost to much battery. May try the cache clear and reset.
