It has happened several times that I've answered an incoming call on the screen while a Bluetooth headset (Jabra Wave+ in my case) has been connected. The headset rings using its built-in tone, but upon answering the call seems to go to the phone by default, not the headset. The headset only picks up once the headset icon is tapped.

If answered using the headset's answer button, the call is picked up by the headset as it should.

This is annoying and in some conditions even a safety issue because the phone may be resting on a table or in a car stand and therefore answered on the touchscreen. Requiring an additional touch is disconcerting and disorienting to both parties.

It's even worse when using bluetooth headphones to listen to music. The headset also has mic and works as a handsfree. But when the phone rings, it mutes the music but doesn't play the ringtone in the headset, and when I answer on the touchscreen, the call is picked up outside the headset.
