I'm using device GT i 9082, Android 6 AOSP ROM. My phone has a problem. While answering/dialing call, putting phone near to ear the screen goes off - this works fine but when taking phone off the ear the screen doesn't come up.

I was wondering if I can stop that functionality of sensor only for call? or any other solution please.

    Simple workaround is to press the power button twice. This will turn on your screen, but you'll have to unlock your phone again. Less than ideal. – Tamoghna Chowdhury Dec 26 '15 at 10:35

    Is there a phone case or screen protector obstructing the proximity sensor? It doesn't even need to be total. – Ethan Z Dec 27 '15 at 3:15
