Karate chop flashlight

2019-09-06, 20:29 PM

No, it works fine. With a caveat. I use a case on my MOV, nothing special, just a leather one. But the weird part is, the karate chop flashlight function works fine when I have the case lid open (either just loose or flipped to the backside), but does not work when the case is closed. Does the feature somehow use the front camera (or the proximity sensor?) to detect the double chop motion  and that's why it doesn't work when the case is closed as the cover covers the front camera or what  else could be the reason for it not working when the case is closed? Not a huge deal, but another thing that I've come across that found curious.

Hi DamtheMan,

 

Thanks for posting. This is normal, it is expected that the feature will not work when you're using a phone case that covers the whole screen - That is because the proximity sensors are responsible for those features. If the whole screen is blocked by the cover, we couldn't be able to activate them. 

 

Best regards,

Thanks for the answer. Good to know I was thinking along the right lines, wondering about the prox sensor.
