Is anyone else having this problem? My screen is not turning off during Skype calls. The battery drains a lot faster obviously, but the real killer is that I continue to navigate my phone with my face, often times to a disastrous result... I searched for this issue and found a lot of results for Nexus 4, but none for Nexus 5.

Same with my Nexus 5. In call the screen doesn't turn off, but when I hang up then the Skype kicks in and acts like mad turning screen off every time I cover the sensor, this is stupid and drives me mad.

I bet you could set up something in Tasker, such as, when Skype is loaded and the phone is vertical, disable touchscreen.

Surely you'd expect a "video call" app to not turn off the screen ?

Could this be perhaps caused by a dpi setting?(I've got it set so that everything is a lot smaller so that more things can be fit on the screen) Looking at my Skype layout it looks like it does on my Nexus 7 tablet. Maybe skype thinks that it's on a tablet, hence the proximity sensor is not being employed. I don't have a Speaker phone button either. This is just a theory, I'm not willing to test it by going to default Dpi as it screwes my entire layout, icons, folders etc.
