After each version update, Android gets better and better. There are no arguments on that. But, there will be some minor flaws or defects annoying to the user that usually gets unnoticed. But, in Android 6 Marshmallow version there is an issue with the hold on button on the caller screen while a call is in progress, that creates a lot of problems.
As in the image shown above, the hold on button is placed at the top of the calling screen. This is in fact near to the phone’s speaker which we place to our ear while a call is going on. I am running my smart phone on Android 6.0.1 and I have the same issue. As we shake our ear, or just tilt the phone a little bit, then the hold on button automatically gets pressed and the call goes on hold. This will surely be annoying to both of the users. It happened to me many times. If you are on a serious call, the situation may get even worse. This problem was found on Samsung Galaxy S7, Samsung Galaxy S6, Samsung Galaxy J5 6 and other Samsung Galaxy smart phones. But, I am not sure whether it is the problem with Samsung’s touch wiz UI or is it with the Android 6 Marshmallow version. Anyhow, we need to fix this problem for sure.
I tried to change the settings in different ways, but none will allow us to customize the caller screen or to remove/hide the hold on button. So, the only go is to install an app from Google play store that will do the work.
HD Phone 6 i Call Screen OS9
This is a very handy app which is just 2.8MB in size. You can enable this app’s feature for incoming as well as outgoing calls as well. This app is compatible with all Android phones. No much customization is required from the user side. The default style is so good. As the name says, it’s similar to the iPhone 6 OS 9 caller screen. You have an extra add on too. The caller screen background can be set as you wish.
If you need to change the current theme also, a wide variety of caller screen skins are available of download, just a click away. Else, if you need to customization also, this is the right app. You can change as you need.
The drawback i found with this app is, the call timer starts counting even before the call is picked up. The next problem is, there is 2 seconds delay even after you press the call button while receiving the call. During this time, the phone continues ringing. But, anyway, this is the most suitable app to available as of now, to solve this caller screen hold on issue in Android Marshmallow.
