Proximity Sensor Test for Android


This app allows you to test the Proximity Sensor - the proximity sensor is located on the upper front part of the phone (usually above the display).
The proximity sensor is usually used to determine how far away a person's head is from the face of a handset device (for example, when a user is making or receiving a phone call). Most proximity sensors return the absolute distance, in cm, to this app but some return only two values, near and far - in this app these two values are respectively processed as "near position" and "far position".
To test the Proximity Sensor, move your hand (or your finger) over it, the frame color should change from red ("far position") to green ("near position") or vice-versa, whenever your hand (or your finger) comes closed to (or is moved away from) proximity sensor.
If there is no red or green border, then one of the following cases is true:
If you notice that the proximity sensor does not properly work, it must be calibrated. Contact your phone manufacturer or search on Internet for more details on how to perform a proximity sensor calibration. Keep in mind, however, that it may not be possible to perform a sensor calibration.
The proximity sensor may not work as intended in the following cases:
