    Question phone turns off when i open the cover all the way or i touch the top

    So when i watch videos on youtube, if i move my finger over the top front facing camera it will turn off.
    kinda like the feature when you hold up the phone to talk, is there a way to stop this?
    also I recently bought one of those smart case with a window on in. and when i open it all the way to where the front of the case touches the back, it would shut off the phone. how can i fix this?

    Welcome to Android Central! The smart case's magnet is probably too strong, such that when you fold it back, the magnet still triggers the smartcover sensor in the phone.

    The finger over the front facing camera issue sounds like a proximity sensor issue, but I'm not sure where you'd adjust it. Which device do you have?

    I don't see any system setting for that. Is the screen going completely black, or just dimming? Do you have any apps installed that might have control over the screen brightness?
