Definitely does not solve the problem. I have had my s10+ for about 6 months. Never had a problem ever with it turning on in my pocket. Last week I enabled face recognition and since then have had the problem that many others have had; screen coming on and unlocking and dialing/texting/downloading apps/etc by itself.
I have disabled the face recognition completely as I write this. I will reply to the post again in a few days to see if it has made a difference. Very frustrating coming from a pixel 2xl.
Not a solution at all. "direct call" does not exist. The rest does nothing.
Go into settings then down to advanced features and then down to motions and gesture and turn off direct call then go into display and turn on accidental touch protection and turn off the touch sensitivity
Another solution if you're still having issues - Settings > Advanced Features > Motions and gestures > Lift to wake (turn OFF). The lift-to-wake feature is extremely buggy and overly-sensitive...I noticed that lift-to-wake would constantly cause my phone to turn on and off when it was inside my pocket or in a moving car. This causes the S10 to chew through battery, run very warm, and might have caused my first S10+ to fail/die permanently.

I have tried everything including your step above,Samsung tech even remotely took over my S10 and could not figure it out either.It's the accidental touch protection that does not work AT ALL!!!
