    its dirt covering the sensor. You can try to blast compressed air into AUX port and see if it cleans it up.

    If not, there is no much you can do unless you are willing to either root it (then calibrate sensor) or dissemble it (then physically clean the sensor). Both are easy to do, but both may void your warranty (there maybe ways around the warranty issue, you will have to dig).
