There's a long delay between the call end (even when I press "End Call" button) and when I can use the notification bar again for example.

The in-call green phone icon stays in the notification bar for another few seconds.

Is there anything I can do about this, please?

Dunno, but I think yours is typical. I have to wait at least a few seconds before my DROID is "released" after a call. Fortunately I don't make too many phone calls. – Al E. Sep 9 '11 at 12:55
Haha, make / receive it's the same thing. Also, the 2.3.3 distribution is not rooted or touched in anyway. Well... except what Samsung did to it... – Francisc Sep 9 '11 at 13:16
Same here on a Sensation... – Dr G Sep 12 '11 at 14:14

This is usual Android disconnection response.

It's to do with your phone checking in with the closest Antenna when you end a call.

Perhaps this will help explain the speed a little:

p.s. I just hit end call then home or lock screen and put it in my pocket :-)

I do hit End Call, well, not hit, but gently touch, but the screen stays for a while. I just want to make sure the call is closed so I can say bad things about the person that just called. :) – Francisc Oct 4 '11 at 13:32
Hehe yeah the 'call is closed' i.e. your mic is not taking input as soon as you gently touch end call. – Blundell Oct 4 '11 at 13:37
Hope so, thanks. – Francisc Oct 5 '11 at 10:43
