    When I'm on a call sometimes the notification drop down bar comes down and is in the way. Is there a setting to disable the notification bar while on a call?

    Like by itself? Even when on speakerphone? You probably pulling it down with your cheek.. Lol! Bad screen protector may cause proximity sensor to malfunction.

    I don't have a screen protector on. It is with my cheek but I thought thats why the screen turns off when I put it to my ear so this won't happen and well it does.

    Yes, the screen should stay off for a short period. Do you know if the screen is actually turning itself off when its close to you? Could do a dummy trial by placing your hand over the proximity sensor

    It sounds very odd. If the screen is off then theres no way you should be able to access the notification bar.

    Does it happen when anyone else uses the phone? Just wondering if its human error or a phone problem

    It doesn't sound right.

    What happens if you make a call, cover the sensor with one hand (so the screen turns off) and swipe down from the notification bar?

    I'm not sure what's going on. I'll be talking then when the phone turns on the notification bar is down.
