Im having the same issue. Hearing ticks/clicks when im on a call and I end up somewhere after a call. I hope Sony fixes this. Temporarily I lock my phone to prevent this problem.

In the Diagnostics app, go to Test Device and run the Ear Proximity test. Mine passed just fine.

Thumbs up Fixed my Proximity/Ambient light Sensor
Hi, I had this problem since new and I tried installing lots of stock and custom roms (Stock US, Stock SP, Stock TW, Miui, CM11) but it was until I installed EXISTANZ rom, and a hard reboot, and then it magically started working. I knew it wasn't a Hardware issue because when the phone boots it worked for few minutes, then stop reading samples. But I've been with this rom for 3 weeks and I don't have any problem with this (Already installed and update, reset the phone and still working).

So if you have the chance, install this rom.

double tap to wake issue

I turned off "double tap to wake up" and I never had any problems since. I'm not sure it's not a coincidence, but it worked so far (10 days).

About the cut off calls:it's not the proximity sensor. For me that happened on any European firmware. I tried the original .55 Vodafone Germany (the one that the phone came with), .55 UK and .402 Germany. It happened randomly on all of them. I tried repair firmware, factory reset, re flash with FlashTool. Nothing worked. The ones that work flawlessly for me are TW firmwares. I tried both .69 TW and currently on .402 TW. No cut off calls, no problems, no overheating in 4K (about 10 minutes recording).

Hi ,

I also encountered this issue and i performed a test with and without the "double tap to wake" option.
The result is: without the option activated all is fine but when the "double tap to wake" option is activated and the proximity sensor is covered(screen is black) if you double tap the screen it remains closed. So seems that if you are engaged in a conversation and you miss touch twice the screen, it will remain closed.
