This question already has an answer here:
I know this might be a possible duplicate question but I haven't found an answer yet.
phone>call settings>proximity sensor is not available in my version of android.
Is there another way to disable the screen turning off when i dial or receive a phone call?
Is there an app i can install that does it?
Regarding the duplicate question: This question is different because i'm targeting android 4.x and beyond and because I want to disable the proximity sensor completely, it's broken on this device but even if it did work, I would like to override it somehow, preferably without having to install an app with ads etc.
