Thank ypu.
Sorry, you are right!
I found this thread searching for an abnormal behaviour of my pixel 7 pro's proximity sensor.
I figure out now that this Is and old thread.

Op might want to state what his issue is from the begining. Reading the first post is like coming in at the middle of a conversation.

@Coop61 this is how the root of this post started;

If I go anywhere near the top of my phone my screen turns black. Say when pulling down notification bar. It seems to go off right before I get to the Samsung logo, below the ear piece. Normally the screen only goes off in a call.

I've had the same screen protector for months and the sensor is not covered. It's not dirty and there are no scratches. I also haven't dropped the phone or gotten any water in the speaker. No new updates or apps.. Is there a way to calibrate it or even shut it off?


This is the link to that thread;

Did you figure out anything @vikingsandsurfer?

I would like to calibrate the proximity sensor too. It's aggravating since I have very bad eyesight and hold the phone too close to my face.
