    Ok so i just discovered somehthing pretty cool. You know when your on a call the screen is black, and then when you move it from your ear the screen turns on? Well i thought the screen was triggered by accelerometer movement. Its not. Theres a motion sensor right below the front speaker. I tested by being on a call, then i pulled the fone away from my ear and saw the screen turned off, then i waved my finger over the sensor and the screen would turn on and off. Or does everyone already know this?..lol Try it, its pretty cool.

    Proximity sensor is the shiny important sounding marketing term. Its just an everyday photoelectric eye.

    They've been around for a little while. Since the early touch screens and people started realizing the problem. It's basically so you don't hang up on someone with your ear.
