i have this feature turned on right now. so far it wont work for me. i don't know if it has something to do with the proximity censor or maybe it just because i have big pockets in the shorts i wear lol. its funny how Motorola loves to innovate but many times the execution of their design is off.
hey you know we do live in the world of free app development and open source right? why doesn't someone just make an app with the same idea in mind? i think that would be great until Motorola fixes this issue if its widespread. it might not be but i think it is
Figured it out finally!!!! Go to settings and turn it off. Then turn it back on. Then try going into app or web or anything, just have the screen on. Have your phone in landscape view. Now cover the sensor with ur finger and turn phone verdical. Screen should shut off immediately. Your welcome. I also noticed when the phone is vertical you will see a red infrared light in the sensor that u have to cover. Moto photon 4g.
