I saw a lot of threads in forums about proximity sensor problems on this phone...too bad!

But I can't send my phone to Samsung because I rooted it and that triggered Knox warranty so I probably need some other way!
If anybody knows anything please help!

Well, you could just disable the proximity sensor and turn the screen off manually by pressing power.

Phone --> Call Settings --> Turn off screen during calls.

Not ideal, but at least you can still use your phone.

Try what he says! if this do not work then, or you have to pay to get your phone fixed or find a way to fix it yourself (buying a new proximity sensor and changing it through the help of videos).The second option will be a pain in the *** and I would never try it as I am not sure if it could go well.
