HTC Droid Eris :: My Home Sensor Is Not As Responsive As My Back Sensor

Feb 18, 2010

My home icon is way less responsive than the back icon which seems to be perfectly normal. Sometimes I have to "press" the home icon twice to get the "buzz" and have it move the screen. However the back icon works 99% of the time on the first press. IS there any adjustment I can make or should I bring the phone back. I have had it now for 2 weeks.

Android :: No Light Sensor / Proximity Sensor Detected On Hero?

Feb 8, 2010

I have a HTC Hero here, and when I tried to get the list of available sensors on the device by calling ((SensorManager) getSystemService (Context.SENSOR_SERVICE)) .getSensorList(Sensor.TYPE_ALL); I get only the following sensors: D/SensorManager( 6302): found sensor: BMA150 3-axis Accelerometer, handle=0 D/SensorManager( 6302): found sensor: AK8973 3-axis Magnetic field sensor, handle=1 D/SensorManager( 6302): found sensor: AK8973 Orientation sensor, handle=2 D/SensorManager( 6302): found sensor: AK8973 Temperature sensor, handle=3 According to the specs, there should be a light and a proximity sensor on the Hero, and I've seen it in action (the automatic screen brightness adjustment) - so at least the ambient light sensor is definitely there. My question is then, why doesn't the getSensorList return for me the light and the proximity sensors?

Does anyone know the difference between the orientation sensor and magnetic field sensor on Android?Since I've read that magnetometer is synonymous with digital compass I'm a little bit confused. What are they really?

HTC Droid Eris :: How To Disable Proximity Sensor?

Apr 23, 2010

Is there any way to disable it? I put a body skin on it and its barely off center off but its enough to cover the sensor so when i'm in a call its constantly black and i can't do anything . I would just take the skin off and put it back on but i was stupid enough to put it over my invisible shield and im to paranoid to put any more water on my phone and wait another 24 hours. So is there anyway to disable it or do anything?

HTC Droid Eris :: Proximity Sensor Disabled Through Software

Apr 6, 2010

I have searched the forums and cannot find the answer. I need to know if there is a way this sensor was disabled through software. My sensor quit working over the last few days and I cannot find any settings that will reset it. Ive tried many reboots to include pulling the battery for about 15 minutes. The only thing out of the usual the phone has been subjected to recently is 10 25 degree weather for a little over an hour while I tried to let its gps find itself.(Eris users Buy a REAL gps and Ill save the rant)Oh, and none of the only three additional apps have been installed in the last few weeks. So someone please save me a trip to VZW.

HTC Droid Eris :: Otterbox Case Disables Proximity Sensor

Mar 14, 2010

I got an Otterbox (IMPACT) case for my wife's Droid Eris. I have verified that when the case is on, the proximity sensor does not operate at all. Take case off, works fine. Case is on correctly (there's not a whole lot of ways to have it on wrong). Pressing it harder onto my head (which one shouldn't have to do) or holding it farther away don't help, either. Does the other Otterbox case do this?

HTC Droid Eris :: Screen Replacement Seems To Have Broken Proximity Sensor

Oct 6, 2010

I bought and installed a new screen (digitizer) in my Eris. The install went very well but now the proximity sensor doesn't seem to work properly. Most times when I place a call the screens goes blank and won't respond to any button inputs, Once the other party hangs up I get the screen back. But even this is erratic at times, not often, with the screen staying on all the time.

I installed Screebl Lite to force the screen on all the time and it works most of the time but seems to have a hard time figuring out the proximity sensor too.

Is there something I could have done to screw up the sensor when I took the phone apart? Everything else is working fine.

Motorola Droid :: Is There A Way A ROM Could Disable Proximity Sensor

Aug 12, 2010

Is there a way that a ROM could disable the proximity sensor during a call? I have a huge problem where I constantly hang up on people (usually my girlfriend) and that doesn't go very well . If its possible for the end buttonor volume button to wake the screen instead of the proximity, that would save me a lot of hassle. Is this doable, either standalone or through a rom setting?

Motorola Droid :: Proximity Sensor Error

Mar 20, 2010

I have been having this issue for quite some time, but just figures it was a bug in one of the BB roms I was using. Well, since then I have been through about 10 different versions of bugless beast, droid mod, and several others. My issue seems to be that when I make a phone call and put the phone next to my head, although the screen turns off, the touch is still activated.I will be in a call and I will feel the phone vibrate against my head. I usually hit the pound of star key on the phone, and as soon as buttons are pressed in a call, it seems to mute my voice to the person on the other side of the call. I have to remove the phone from my face, wait for the sensor to realize i moved my face, and have to press the backspace button till all the random characters are deleted at which point the person on the other side can hear me again. This happens to me on about 80% of my calls, and is by far the most frustrating issue I have had. Do you think I should re-install stock and bring it in? btw, I posted this in root sub-forum cause I am rooted, and wasn't sure if it was just a rom issue.

Motorola Droid :: Way To Get TempMonitor - CPU Temperature Sensor?

Jun 10, 2010

In any of the new 2.2 ROMs is there any way to get TempMonitor and/or SetCPU to read from the CPU temperature sensor yet?

Flash tends to make the phone pretty warm and I'd really like to know how hot the CPU is getting. A failsafe profile in SetCPU is essentially useless if it can't read the CPU temp sensor.

Motorola Droid :: Screen Timeout / Sensor?

Nov 8, 2009

I've read through the deluge of threads that have sprung up since Friday's Droid release. However, I have only seen this issue listed within longer conversations about frustrations. I wouldn't call this a frustration as much as I would a quirkiness of the Moto Droid that I'm hoping some similarly-annoyed person out there has developed an app to overcome this.

The issue is with the screen lock and the auto-dimming on the phone. The first issue with the lock screen is not a device-specific issue as far as I can tell, but it is insanely annoying not to have a lock timeout setting within the OS. I should not have to unlock my phone every single time the screen dims from the timeout setting. Every other phone I've ever owned that has a screen lock does not have this limitation and, if someone were to mention that the iPhone has the same issue, I would point out that they suck.

As for the other issue, and the far worse one, how in the world is the proximity sensor when on a call so damn finicky!? I have read this complaint multiple times on various forums, but no concise list of solutions. The screen goes black when you have the phone to your ear, but when you move it away from your ear, the screen should *consistently* re-light so the user can have access to the keypad, etc.. This is not working at all as I would expect. I did find an app in the marketplace that allows you to set the screen timeouts by application, but if I set it to not timeout on the phone app, the screen will stay lit when I have the phone to my ear, which would defeat the whole purpose.

This seems like a huge bug to have missed in all the testing that occurred before releasing the phone, especially for such a basic feature. I expect customers to go nuts on Verizon for this one (my fiance is far from a technical user and has the Droid and has yelled at me to "fix it" referring to this problem..

Motorola Droid X :: Android System Sensor Usage - Possible Battery Hog

Aug 5, 2010

I just got my droid x about 2 days ago, and I've gone through about 2 full cycles. So far I haven't been able to squeeze more than 6 hrs of use on it, so I installed spare parts to see if the GPS bug was affecting it.

Going through some usage information, I found that the "Android System" sensor usage was huge! Since 1hr 29min unplugged the Sensor has been on for 1hr 36min...weird.

Checking the total time since boot the sensor has been on 19 hrs. I have autobrightness turned off and I haven't come across any other posts that explain what uses the sensor.

Motorola Droid :: Light Sensor Or Timer Dims Screen Up And Down During Video Playback

Nov 7, 2009

I am not sure which is the culprit, but while playing back video or even at random times, the screen shifts lighter or darker seemingly at random, and one time during a video playback on the TV.com app, it went black altogether. I am not sure whether it is the timer or the ambient light sensor, but I am tempted to turn the sensor off and push the timer back a lot.

HTC EVO 4G :: Calibration For G Sensor

Jun 20, 2010

On threads about the lag issue it was recomended to do a g-sensor calibration. Before I did one I had no noticible lag but the posters said this would increase responce. So I did a g-sensor calibration and now I have a noticible lag while scrolling. Any thought on this and what could be happening. The fact that the response changed gives me hope it could be corrected through settings or software updates. But just maybe it is a bad idea to follow all advice one sees on here.

HTC EVO 4G :: Motion Sensor While On Call?

Nov 18, 2010

i just discovered somehthing pretty cool. You know when your on a call the screen is black, and then when you move it from your ear the screen turns on? Well i thought the screen was triggered by accelerometer movement. Its not. Theres a motion sensor right below the front speaker. I tested by being on a call, then i pulled the fone away from my ear and saw the screen turned off, then i waved my finger over the sensor and the screen would turn on and off. Or does everyone already know this?..lol Try it, its pretty cool.

Android :: Enhanced Sensor API

Jun 2, 2009

I had a discussion with a few of the Android team member at Google IO, and I'd like to throw the idea out here for general brainstorming with the community. My view is that it is not a good approach to create "sensor-specific" APIs with iterative releases of the Android platform and SDK's. By this, I mean that instead of adding a "location API", and an "accelerometer API", and whatever comes next, we should create a "generic" sensor API that can work with a broad range of sensor types, including sensor configuration, demand read/write/configuration, event notifications, and other functions. In this way, 3rd parties could also add innovative sensing capabilities (or external sensors) to their Android devices which would be "instantly" supported by the platform. Well-known sensor such as collocation and acceleration could have agreed-to sensor names/namespaces, with full extensibility for additional sensor types. As an example, collocation as a 2D longitude/latitude is fine for some apps, but for "inside the building" applications or for other apps involving the need to accurate location of people or resources in 3 dimensions, it doesn't cut it. Additionally, one can easily envision inclusion of RFID, environmental, and other sensors in devices that could dramatically enhance the capabilities of Android applications.

Android :: Example App That Uses Accelerometer Sensor?
