My phone is acting wired from two weeks ago. The Display is getting automatically off without even I'm going near to Ear. To WhatsApp Audio messages also when start to listen the auto the screen is getting off. I tried maximum possible to clean the phones upper part but still same. Please anyone help me how to fix this issue.
Sorry for my Bad English.
Thank You..

I'm sharing this exact same issue when listening to WhatsApp Audio Messages.
I think it appears to happend more often under dim light conditions, but also when the sun is shining and I'm outside.

To me it seemed always help to hold the phone straight, rather than rotated a little bit.

Please Fix
