It is impossible to switch a call to the earpiece as long as Bluetooth is connected.
(But it is even worse if the phone has a lock code and is locked)
STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
- Connect BT headset/handsfree/speaker/…
- Get a call
- Fail at switching the call to the earpiece
Call can be routed to the earpiece.
Only options are BT device and speaker.
It is not always preferable to accept a call to a connected Bluetooth device (e.g. speaker playing music for many people).Also, quite a lot of Bluetooth headsets seem to have microphone issues, some due to incompatibilities with the SFOS BT stack, some are useless wholly on their own merit.
One could claim that it would be a workaround to disable Bluetooth, but that is even in the basic case hardly user friendly. Add having a lock code to that and it makes it so much worse. While i think settings on the lock screen should be available without unlocking if the user chooses to make it so, the current way is the sensible default setting. Also, when trying to disable Bluetooth the lockscreen does not put itself over the phone app, and until the phone app is swiped away, does not appear to actually validate fingerprints.
Ergo, the workaround does not work well enough, and honestly this deserves its own button.
