Hi,

I'm sorry about the issue. Please open Settings app icon, then tap on option Accessibility. Then turn off the option Talk Back. (You may need to select option Vision first, then turn off Talkback there.) That should fix it. If needed, check other options there.

- If needed, press and hold the Power on / off button on the phone, then select the Restart option and confirm, then check. (If needed, press and hold the power on / off button on the phone for about 20 seconds, then turn it back on and check.)

Please reply at the box below to continue. Thank you,

Expert:  Viet - Technician replied 9 months ago.

- If needed, to select an option, tap on it once, then tap on it twice; to scroll, you may need to use two fingers. If needed, please click on the website below for video instructions with some Samsung phone models:

If needed, open Phone icon, then go to Menu there (then Settings), then option Call (or Call settings). Then uncheck option Auto screen off during calls (or option Turn off screen during calls, etc.), and check. (uncheck option proximity sensor)

Please type at the box below, then click on the Send button below to communicate with me, so I can help further. Thank you,

There is no option auto screen off during calls or turn off screen during calls

This happens when you make a call, the lock appears and if you need to pull up the keypad to enter options it becomes a problem.
Expert:  Viet - Technician replied 9 months ago.

Thank you for replying back. I'm sorry. When did this issue first occur?

So when you make a call, the lock screen appears. How about when receiving a call?

Do you see the Talkback option and/or option Vision, etc. in Settings -> Accessibility?

- Check all the options / settings in Phone / Call.

- Go to Phone / Call settings, turn on option Pressing the Power key for Answering and ending calls. (Or go to Settings -> Accessories -> Answering and ending calls -> Pressing the Power key.)

Please reply at the box below to continue. Thank you,

Hi.The lock appears when I answer the phone also when I end a call. In the call settings both the pressing the home key and pressing the power key the option box is ticked. The talkback option is off.

Expert:  Viet - Technician replied 9 months ago.

Thank you. Can you you please open Settings app icon, then open option Lock screen and check there? Please let me know. Thank you,

When I open Lock Screen 7 options appear 1) Screen lock I use swipe 2) Duel clock 3) Show date. 4) Camera shortcut. 5) owner information. 6) Unlock effect I use Tension. 7) Help text box is not ticked.
Expert:  nathan_mills replied 9 months ago.

Hi Stuart, I am Nathan.

You cant remove that double tap lock while calling because your phone doesn't have proximity sensor to avoid accidental touch to the screen while calling.

Hi. Very disappointing, rubbish phone, Samsung usually good but this one is not, time for a change
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Can you recommend a Samsung that does not have the Double Tap lock
Expert:  nathan_mills replied 9 months ago.

Yes sure. There are so many Samsung phones available right now in the market. All the galaxy s7,s6,s5 does not have double tap lock.

Expert:  nathan_mills replied 9 months ago.

Any phone which has Proximity Sensor will not have double tap lock feature while calling. There are other Samsung phones like A5,A3, J5 also which do not have double tap lock.
