1. Android Central Question's Avatar
    My sister in law has a Huawei Y7 2019. It does not have a built in smart cover app to turn the Screen off. I can't see a physical proximity sensor on the front.

    Is there a third party app available that can automatically turn the screen off when the cover is closed?

    I tried Easy smart cover which works on my older Samsung J7 2016. But it doesn't work on the Huawei Y7 2019.

    Your advice would be appreciated.

    Kind regards
    Chris

    Welcome to Android Central! It should have a proximity sensor: https://www.sosav.com/guides/mobiles...9/sensor-near/. You can always tell if a phone has a proximity sensor if the screen goes dark during a call while holding the phone up to your hear. (Phones without a proximity sensor will usually have a lockscreen on during a call to prevent accidental touches.)

    There are a number of 3rd party apps that might work. Try Auto Screen On Off
