My mother also has an N5, not rooted on either 5.0 or 5.0.1, it also came with 4.4.4 but she was able to update via OTA. Her proximity sensor also doesn't work, not sure about her light sensor.

Should I try the fix listed here? What about my mom's phone? I'd rather not root hers if I don't need to. Has anyone else been having these problems with stock Lollipop?

Edit - of these three:
/data/system/sensors
/data/misc/sensors
/persist/sensors/sns.reg

I could only find /data/misc/sensors so I went ahead and deleted it.

That's a Lollipop bug, I have it too on AICP.

I have this sensor problem on my n5. Proximity not working, so when making call the screen wont' turn off

Tried lollipop stock rom, n5x rom, terminus rom with n5x kernel and code blue kernel, no fix

But i have found solution to it, now is pass 24 hours since i last time reboot, proximity still works well

Simple solution : always turn on automatic brightness, this works for me at least at till now 28 hours after reboot

That's not a fix, that's just dumb luck lol.
