Normally we can open camera when device is locked swiping up from the bottom of the screen. Trying to do this with one hand it’s quite hard up to impossible. Sometimes it work after changing the handle but it’s still a lottery, more often the screen changes like doing left/right swap instead of opening the camera.
Lock the screen
Hold the phone in the middle not from the bottom
STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
- Lock the phone
- press power button once so the screen lights up but doesn’t unlock
- hold the phone in one hand can be right hand in the middle like with full grab so you can kind of reach top and the bottom of the screen
- swipe the thumb normally without breaking it, from the bottom to open the camera
Screen switches left of right, depends
I think the problem is related to the way the recognition is done. Holding phone like explained above, prevent from doing straight swipe from bottom to the top. It’s more like angle swipe which starts from the bottom, then it goes a bit into the left and then into right. Probably that’s why the phone recognize left/right swipe instead of showing camera.
This is the problematic hold I’m talking about:
