    I' ve got the galaxy s5 ...Since I upgraded a couple of days ago to marshmallow 6.0.1 direct call doesn't work
    My sensors are working , air movements are working everything's ok except for direct call. Is anybody else facing the same problem? I am almost certain that it's an upgrade glitch..so what can be done? Is there a solution besides restoring to factory settings (which by the way did nothing for a guy I read about in another forum)
    Thank u!!!

    I for one, do not understand what you mean by "direct call"

    that would be a normal phone dial out via the carrier you use?

    "Direct call" is an option in the " Motions and gestures" menu of the galaxy s5 which when turned on it does the following: you choose the contact you want and when you move the phone to your ear it dials it. that's a feature of the phone not the carrier's.
