    I have had a screen protector on my 4.2 for the last couple of months with no problems.

    A Nokia 4.2.. when I am on a call , the phone doesn't go off, it stays on so my ear keeps interrupting calls.. I think it's my unit because o haven't seen a phone behave like this befoee..

    I had the same issue with 3d screen protector with black frame on Nokia 4.2. Its edge partly interfered the sensor window.

    Since I have changed it to simple transparent protector, I don't have that issue any more, the proximity works perfectly.


    Check if your protector interferes the sensor (up-right from the front camera). Have a nice day.

    I dont know where are you from but this is polish company, i bought it for my mom nokia 4.2. Working perfectly and proximity sensor is not covered, also its easy to mount. I dont know if they ship to whole Europe but you could try i guess. If site wont translate auto just paste it to google translate.

  • I had the same issue. It was so hard to find a perfect screen protector and I wasted much money by installing expensive protectors. I tried like 4-5. Suddenly I found a perfect one and it wasn't expensive.

    And for those who doesn't use screen protector what can we do with the proximity sensor? Is there a way to fix it?

    Try resetting your device, mine is working well even with the screen protector
