    Does anyone know how to or heard of an app that turns your screen off during a phone call? I have noticed that the phone gets dangerously hot during long calls, especially while charging and calling. Im wondering if by turning the screen off you could prevent some of that heat and at the same time prevent the cheek dialing/ cheek end calls that I encounter on occasion.

    during a call, the screen shuts off after a set amount of time, same as it does when it's not in a call

    For the 2 min or so before the screen shuts off during a call, I like to pull down the notification screen because I frequently accidentally hit buttons with my cheek

    I am the opposite. I like the screen to stay on so it is quicker to hang up. To each his own. I don't talk that long though.

    if the screen is off, you can always hit the "end call" button twice in quick succession, and it hangs up

    Just 1 press does the trick, actually. -- but it takes a second.

    try it next time. press the end call button once (even if the screen is off) It will wake up the screen and end the call 1/2 second later.
