There is no proximity sensor in the phone there's nothing xiaomi can do no update will fix this. The problem is a piece of hardware is missing. Try this remedy switch off screen before answering a phone call in advance

Hi

Yes, i know that there is no sensor, but somehow they simulate via software. Maybe they are able to use the camera, or other way, so that the screen does not light up, when is not on vertical position. I already using the off switch as a workaround, and it rely **s because i can't return the phone since nothing is broken(is just missing)

if there's no proximity sensor then they are probably using software to trigger the front camera , If the camera detects low/no light then the screen will turn off. in theory would work but if you hold the phone higher than the front camera would show some light and fail.

i don't think they are using the camera, i think they are only using the gyroscope sensor, since the screen remains active if you put the phone on a table and try to cover the camera. Even if you cover the entire screen, it still remains active, so, i think they are not using the camera(maybe that will help even if is not the best solution)

a combo of the gyro sensor when in a certain positon to trigger the front camera to detect low light would work then.

yeap, could help, maybe not in 100% of the cases,  but it would be a great improvement over the current setup

How much does it cost to add a proximity sensor. I would have gladly paid that on top of the £300 I paid for the phone. Thinking of selling it I buy another device with actual proximity sensor unlike this experiment with front camera or gyroscope while using our money.

i understand your frustration, and selling the device the device to someone that doesn't know the issue could be an option, but we are trying here to signal the developers to come up with a software solution like the one(https://www.ellipticlabs.com/202 ... 0-lite-smartphones/) in order to fix our problem. Just hope someone from the developer side are reading this threads
