I'm sure if this was a brain fart or a feature of the phone. I got HTC Thropy updated to 7.5 and I noticed when the phone rings and I pick up my phone from the desk it lowers its volume. It sounds like a nice feature. Using accelerometer phone recognize that I noticed the incoming call, so what is the point or ringing after?

Is this a feature?

  • The point of carrying on ringing is that you might want to ignore/reject the call

  • after I pick up the phone and see the screen "xyz calling" there's no point to keep carrying on ringing. I can press ignore. I wonder, though, how this feature would work in a bit different environment e.g. ship. May 13 '12 at 6:32

This is likely behavior of the HTC Attentive Phone app. It allows for settings to quiet on pickup, pocket mode, flip for speaker, and flip to silence.
