    Hi All

    I realize that you might need to press buttons and such on the screen but on a Moto G phone is there a way to lock the screen when on a call?

    Like today I was making a call and must have got the screen a tad close to my cheek and it hung up mid call. So is there any way to lock the screen which would stop it from accidentally hanging up but also allow it to be unlocked to have access to the keyboard should you be on one of those awful automated systems.

    Try using the proximity sensor.
    It will turn the screen off during a call, but not lock it whenever the sensor is covered.

    Most devices do this automatically if the sensor exists (I have seen only one modern device without one), but there are apps that can do this for you as well.


    (Let me know about this one, I haven't tried it yet.)

    Also able to do this and more is my favorite one of this type, WaveUp.
