Left of the HTC logo above the screen. It is also where the proximity sensor is.

If you call someone, take a look at the front of your phone. You will see a steady red glow from the top left of your screen, this is where the proximity and ambient light sensor are housed.

It helps if you angle the phone, you can see that there is almost like a rectangle hole in the paint behind the glass

If you want to easily see it, enable Face Unlock, then try to unlock your phone in complete darkness, you will see that little red light comes on to the left of HTC logo.

That light seems to be permanently on after I had a viber call. Any ways to turn it off

Edit.: the cause was NotifierPro. Fixed it.

"settings --> display and gestures --> sleep" and there you can set the time for turning off the display
