Default proximity sensor issue during phone calls

when I talk with my XZ1, and I should activate the proximity sensor with my ear, it often fails

often, the display light keeps ON and I activate with my ear all the possible functions (for example I had to turn off my airplane mode shortcut off to avoid to lose calls in progress pressing it with my ear!)

the only way to save all my calls is.... to remember to lock my screen before answering


do you know how can I fix it?

I'm having the same issue, really frustrating as I have ended calls several times and also muted, called extra calls etc...

Not happy about this at all

I just noticed. If I cover the sensor before making the call, the screen turns off when I press call, and comes back when I remove the cover.
I however can not make the screen turn off once I have removed the cover.

I get the same problem, I also had similar experience with my HTC One, I've found out if I lock the screen after dialing number/contact it helps, a bodge job I know but stops me going through the menus with my ear lol!

I've got problem with sensibility of the sensor some times.
I thinks i don't use the good position for the phone.
With xperia T i've used "pimp my rom" to lower the distance for proximity sensor. It was a lot better.

May be it's not the same problem as you cause it was not on every call.

BTW i've an other question about proximity sensor. I need to have it working with other app. i don't have try every option on pimp my rom and now my Z1 is back to root.
