    So I have a tendency to lay the phone face-down sometimes, especially when sleeping and I want the speaker for the alarm face-up.
    I've noticed that when getting incoming calls, I think only when face-down, the phone rings for maybe 1/4 of a second before going to silent.

    I suspect the following "feature" may be causing an issue... (copied from Tips and Tricks)

    "Lay your phone down on a table or desk, when it rings (incoming call) and you don't want to answer it, or talk to an individual, TURN THE PHONE OVER AND IT STOPS RINGING. "

    Is there any way to disable this functionality?
    I (un)checked the 'quiet ringer when I move the phone' option, which seems to have no bearing on the turn over function. I will say that during my testing, I could not actually reproduce the actual problem of no ringing, the phone was ringing face-down just fine. Likely I just missed a detail in my repro attempt, otherwise there might be other (probably worse) issues going on.
