    Through testing I have determined that the "phone-going-automatically-to-speakerphone", any time I pull my head more than five inches fro the screen during a call, is due to the proximity sensor. It was not like this before the latest update.
    I defeated this by placing a tiny piece of black electrical tape over the proximity sensor.
    I would rather just turn the proximity sensor off, or at least turn the "automatically going to speaker phone) function off, but in past requests no one seemed to know how to do that.
    So, I am left with just turning off the proximity sensor off.
    Anyone know how?
    Thanks.

LG V30

The LG V30 is the follow-up to the LG V20. LG made a lot of changes in this model. Removing the Second Screen, adding the FullVision display, and polishing everything up. The V30 is LG's premium phablet.
