    Does this happen as you hold it to your ear? If so, probably it's the proximity sensor.

    Welcome to Android Central! That's normal behavior from the proximity sensor if it senses something right up against it (typically your ear or your face), so that you don't get any unintentional screen touches while on a call. If this is happening even without the phone up against your ear, then something else might be blocking the proximity sensor, like a poorly fitted case or screen protector. The proximity sensor is usually right next to the front-facing camera, so see if something is in its way.
