The screen will turn off when ur hand covers the proximity sensor not the screen. You can disable it in phone settings.

Fix Proximity Sensor
Instead of disabling you can make the proximity sensor work right.

The post below has instructions on how to do it.

My sensor is working pretty much fine... I just want disable it while im running skype call and play my mmo game at the same time... I dont want anything else.


It bothers me cause when I'm playing my game and talking to my friends and touch the proximity sensor the screen goes off and I lose a match in the game.
