When the phone rings and I pull it out of my pocket, most of the time it either hangs up or answers the call. I don't touch any buttons with my fingers. Sometimes it does this even before I start to take it out of my pocket. This is not in bluetooth mode. Phone is set to stay locked until I swipe the pattern or use fingerprint. Ideally I want the phone to only answer when I explicitly tell it to do so.

Model SM-G930V Android version 7.0

  • Do you any gestures enabled? Lift to check phone enabled?

  • I don't know, how do I check? Apr 29, 2018 at 12:19
  • I'm not 100% sure, but open Settings and navigate to Moves, which can be found in the System section.

Ok, I dug a little deeper and read the user guide/manual for your phone. It might be some settings that are enabled in the accessibility settings, called Single Tap mode. Here is the link to the user guide. I included a screenshot of that section and added the text too.

enter image description here

When an alarm sounds or a call comes in, tap the button to stop the alarm or answer the call instead of dragging the button.

On the Apps screen, tap Settings → Accessibility, and then tap the Single tap mode switch to activate it.

Change the method of answering or ending calls.

On the Apps screen, tap Settings → Accessibility → Answering and ending calls. Select the desired method.
