[Feature Suggestion] : Pocket mode
« On:December 17, 2015, 09:19:47 PM »
Ok,

When one puts mobile into pocket, there is a possibility of power button or home button gettting pressed. As the consequence, it happens that camera gets open (because of double tap home button feature) or some uintended action may happen without user concern.

Solution: One excellent solution could be using proximity sensor (Well, now Z3 has it). Proximity sensor can be used to detect if mobile is in pocket when power or home button is pressed and touch input to screen could be disabled.

I have seen this feature in lenovo phones and it's cool to have.
Name "pocket mode" I've stolen from lenovo.  ;)

Think about this feature. It could be USP for upcoming Tizen phones.  ;) ;) ;)

Copying cant make unique. Something different and unique idea could be better.

While Pattern lock or security number will solve the above problem. :)

That's very rude of you...

And it's not copy until it doesn't violate patents/copyrights.
What's harm in implementing something that's really useful?

And,

While Pattern lock or security number will solve the above problem. :)

As Arshdeep said, it won't.

But its. good feature also if they can implement it...the more option the better I think...no harm in adding it to the phone as an option.

As you said the feature is already availiable, I thought better than that would be great.... Anyway if it doesn't violate patents/copyrights it is good for users you need it.

For Camera, we can disable the button on lock screen. This trick can be used until the app is made.

Thanks Atma Ram,
I would consider disabling lock screen camera shortcut. I am using beautiful double tap home button to open camera feature anyway...

Folks, UX team will definitely consider this(weigh the pros/cons) and decide whether to provide it or not.
