If i swipe down from the top to close an app and at the same time i get an incoming call it always disconnects the call. For me this mostly happens when i miss a call and quickly checks the events screen and then swipe down to close it and the caller calls back a second time. Swipe down from the top closes the "answering app" so an to eager answering attempt when stressed will not answer the call but rather drop the call. If i pull down from the top the app closes and the call is dropped but if i pull down from just a little lower on the screen i answer the call with the exact same swipe-motion, since the green receiver is on the top it is intuitive swipe from the top. Maybe you shouldn't be able to close the app with swipe down during the question for answer or decline a call.

Not an real fix, but suggestion to your usage pattern: close events view by swiping from bottom again (just like opening it), so you're not so prone to errors. Also this is a lot easier to do than reaching to top.

Its not a bug but a feature when you get phonecall its better to swipe than to close an app.

Well you don't have to see the incoming call, it's more like you close an app and you see at the top of the screen that an incoming call was disconnected. It's not like you have a choice and most of the time you didn't even see the "answer screen" since it didn't have time to paint it on the screen.

The solution can't be never to use swipe down to close an app since every time you do so you might disconnect/reject a call since you never know when someone will call you. If that was the case then swipe down to close can be removed completely and that's not an option.

Well you don't have to see it as you can also hear it, and swipe down can be canceled if you don't lift up the finger when your doing the gesture. And if you happen accidentally drop the call, you can always call back to person that called you.
