Verizon LG g4 proximity sensor always on when screen is turned off.

If the screen is on, but before unlock, proximity sensor is on as well. It will turn off only after unlock the screen to home screen.
it cause battery drain and infrared light burned out/dead after being *"ON" all the time.

Any LG g4 user worry about it? I ca not imagine when my proximity sensor (infrared light) burned out, and no longer working

It is infrared, so you can only tell if you use another camera or phone look at it.

Just went to store and checked other LG G4
ALL LG G4s' proximity sensors are on WHEN screen is OFF.

So, LG G4 users, expecting infrared led light go out after reach its lifespan.

This is normal and good. It prevents unwanted taps or screen unlocking when you have your G4 in pocket/bag/purse and will shutdown any unwanted usage.

Especially since this phone has a double tap to wake feature, this can be easily manipulated accidently. So, look at it as a good things rather then bad and draining. I doubt it's really going to cause drastic battery issues.
