    My Galaxy s5 screen keeps going dark when I take or make a call. The staysmart is activated, but if off, screen still goes dark. Can I disable the proximity sensor somehow? Screen time is set as 3 minutes.

    I'm not sure you can disable the proximity network through the stock settings. However, try downloading Tasker and see if that can do it. I'm pretty sure you can. Also, be sure to check the developers webpage for the timed trial since the Play Store is a paid app - the developers website can be found via the Play Store link.

    I have somewhat the opposite problem. Do you happen to know how I can change a setting so that my screen turns off during a call?

    In both cases, it sounds like a defective proximity detector, or a case preventing the proximity detector from detecting your face in one case and acting as your face in the other.
