I have a Sony XA2 with the custom flip cover that Sony sells. When using the cover during a call, the screen only flashes on for a moment then goes black again, which means that it's not possible to access any menus or other features during a call - including terminating the call.

The flip cover works fine when I'm not in an active call.

If I turn off the setting for "Display" -> "Use flip cover to control display", then everything works as expected.

My current software version is, and I'm using the dual-sim XA2.

Done. Added even a link here :)

By keeping the on/off button and Vol- down simultaneous it has succeeded for me to turn on the screen :-)

@sjn Can you elaborate a bit on what kind of flip cover you have and what you do with it during calls? Is it some kind of see-through cover that provides view / finger access to screen despite being closed?

The symptoms sound a bit like what would happen when p-sensor is covered and/or lid sensor is in closed position during call and power key is pressed: display is unblanked due to power key, then blanked due to sensor and call state.

I think it's mostly due to the proximity sensor bug.

Hi, this issue should be fixed in 3.0.3 release along with other proximity fixes. https://together.jolla.com/question/203846/changelog-303-hossa/#203846-mce
