    So I went to put my S4 up for sale, and naturally I got my S6 edge to take some pictures of it for said sale. Then I noticed that the proximity sensor was on, and I never noticed this before because it seems to be an IR beam that is only visible when viewed through the camera viewfinder. I've attached a picture to show what I mean:

    This IR beam turns off when the screen is not on, but it comes back on whenever the screen is on again. Air/motion gestures are disabled, NFC is off, bluetooth is off and I do not have any apps installed apart from the stock standard ones. Restarting the phone did not solve the issue either. I'm aware this will be adding unnecessary drain to the battery so if anyone knows how to fix this problem, that would be awesome!
