i just got my s9 a few days ago. so far i wish i never let it update to android 9. so many features that made the s9 good were removed. anyways... Has anyone else had this issue with the sensor listening to facebook msgs in Msger if your finger goes across the sensor at all the screen turns off. is there a fix for this?
To add some of the missing features of Android Pie you can download Good lock app by Samsung. There are few features that can be added on Samsung devices that are missing with One UI. The Proximity Sensor usually turn off screen usually when call is going on so that there are no accidental touch on screen while Calling, maybe when listening to msg it is recognizing that as a call. That's why it is causing it to turn off screen. Maybe try uninstalling the Messenger app and install again and see if it works.
