I have to do phone calls daily that involve a lot of listening, and I vary between needing to be muted or not muted on this call.
During any call, my screen will fade and turn off within seconds of my last interaction on the screen.
I can not see if my call is actively on mute or not, and I can not turn on or off mute without pressing the power button first.
My phone calls are being affected by this feature given the delay in time it takes to turn the screen back on and remove mute when I need to give vocal input in the meeting, and I also can not see if I am on mute when at a distance from the phone without being able to physically touch the phone. If my phone is on the desk and I am across the room, I want to see whether mute is on or off.
Are you able to keep your phone plugged in charging when on these calls? If so, there is a setting in Developer Options to keep your screen awake whilst charging.
To enter Developer Mode head to Settings > About Phone > Software Information > Tap Build Number 10 times really fast.
