    Hello, I have my i7 128gb.

    After I have upgraded to 10.2 (it could be just a coincidence though) the screen won't turn on for 3-4 sec. The power button is completely useless at the time. The Home button makes taptic vibrate but the screen would be black for about 3-4sec.
    Raise to wake is enabled.
    Have you encountered this?

    I have not personally encountered this issue. Have you tried to restore?

    I've encountered this several times on the 7 Plus and the iPad Air 2 but it's only when I've been on speaker phone and hit the lock button. I'm unable to get the display to light up again for 3-4 seconds.

    When I turned it off and back on again I have yet to see it happen. Good news!

    A beneficial problem haha. When you can't replicate the problem. Hopefully the original problem is gone now.

    My 6+ 128gb had this problem. I just lived with it because it happened once or twice a month. My 6s+ has never had this problem. Never found a solution - didn't really care cuz it didn't happen too frequently.

    I feel like restarting your phone is the first thing everybody should do before creating a thread here. lol

    100% way to reproduce the problem:
    1) receive a call/call somebody;
    2) talk...
    3) hang by pressing Power button;
    4) wait 10-15 sec;
    5) try to unlock your phone: you probably won't be able to for 3-5 sec. It will remain black whatever you press, taptic engine vibrates, nothing happens.
