Issue exist. Wife and son have problems with screen turning on and off. I watch them while talking. Without any movement of cell phone or head, screen turns on. So, calinorg, you are wrong.

In settings there is an option to turn the proximity sensor on and off

    Hi, you can try to calibrate the sensor by tapping several times on kernel version in Settings and see if it works.
    Good luck,

    I didn't have any issue with proximity sensor, others say they did... Sincerely i think that they're just holding phone against their head wrong while talking...
    I think I've heard somewhere that there is a slight problem with the proximity sensor but that was due to it being ultrasonic rather than infrared. I'm not sure but may be that might be the reason.

    hi all,

    I have a Mi 10T, Indian version(MIUI Global 12.0.5.0 Stable). I have faced this issue from time to time too.

    I did something that helped, I cleaned the LED indicator light hole and ear piece opening, using a bubble gum(please watch a few youtube videos on how to do that and do not get any residue of gum stuck in). Then as said above calibrated the sensor from kernel version settings.

    Before the clean up, 6/10 calls I faced this nagging issue. Post clean up, its like 1/10 calls , and mostly that one call is usually whatsapp voice call this happens with and not the google phone app.

    hope this helps you guys too.

    EDIT : P.S. Are people with stock MIUI dailer/phone and messaging app facing this issue too? Kindly mention your phone's ROM version, I am planning to Install Indonesia version of stock MIUI Rom for my device, to get back Stock MIUI Dialer/Phone and messaging app.

    Also, I kind of have a feeling that Google phone and messaging app are not optimised for MIUI ROM and/or this device.

    It has nothing to do with Google phone app, sensor is ultrasonic and it is a bit iffy from time to time...

    Him I have the very same issue.
    Let's admit, Xiaomi note 8 pro is ****.
    I've proximity issues and headphone connector issues.
    The phone price is great, the quality is not there. Simply it's a big nightmare .
    What a big disappoinment.
