    So I understand that the hero has no proximity sensor, and so does not lock the screen while talking on the phone. So has anyone been having problems with pressing on-screen buttons with their face and stuff? Has the absence of the proximity sensor been an issue with the Hero? Thanks!

    No issue. Buttons are fairly flush and the ball is protected by the chin.

    Oh, I meant pressing on-screen buttons. Like the touch-screen buttons. Since the screen is not locked while you talk on the phone, wouldn't your face touch the touch-screen buttons and mess up your phone call?

    No it's not a problem. The phone will turn in to sleep mode and go black on you and nothing can be pressed. In order to wake the phone back up you can install a "shake" app or just simply press on the send button.

    After using the iphone for 2 years, this feature definitely still trips me up a bit.

    The screen turns off while you are in a call.
    You can press any button (presumably you would want to avoid the end call button) to wake the screen and then go from there.
