What to do if the incoming call on Xiaomi is not displayed in full screen
In rare cases you may encounter that Xiaomi stops displaying the incoming call message in full screen, only a narrow green bar at the top of the screen is visible, which is very difficult to see. In this situation it is impossible to react immediately to the call, to answer it or reset it. What to do if calls are not displayed?
Displaying an incoming call on the Xiaomi screen refers to notifications.
For all operations with voice calls in the network of the mobile operator in Xiaomi phones is responsible system application “Phone”, in its settings we will go to return the usual display of notifications.
To describe the problem with the fact that incoming calls do not go through: the settings of notifications of the application “Phone” are confused and you need to restore them.
Enter the settings of your smartphone, find the “All apps” item. Either scroll through the list by searching for “Phone”, or enter its name in the search bar. We need the “Notifications” section for “Phone”. In front of you is a list of all the notifications that work with this app, your job is to go into each list and include all the available items. The item is considered to be on when the switch is lit, if it is pale then it is off. After activating all the switches, restart your smartphone and check if a full screen message appears, as usual, with the caller’s name and his photo.
