Gets pretty annoying some time Later, can't work, play games, watch movies just somehow hand comes in front of it and then Sensor detects it and black out the entire screen!
Please if someone knows anything about it, I desperately need their help! Thanks.
Try going to Settings>General>Application manager>All>Phone and clearing data.
If that doesn't help, try doing a factory reset.
Failing that, try availing warranty, or if you are Knox 0x1, try another ROM.

I do this once a month.
The other thing you can do is disassemble your phone, clean the proximity sensor lens, maybe add some kind of protection to protect it from dust... and reassemble everything.
His problem seems to be a software issue and not a hardware one.
