    Just installed a xoskin screen protector. I didn't do a very good job as the edge of the cutout is very close to blocking the sensor closest to the front camera. Which one is that? Hope it doesn't have any effect on it.

    I thought that was the proximity sensor. Can you drill the hole out a little?

    No problems with the proximity sensor so far so I'll leave it alone. :)

    I believe the one closest to the camera is the light sensor, which shouldn't be affected by a clear cover. It was the proximity sensors they were having issues with if covered, and all of the screen protectors I've seen thus far don't cover it.

    I should point out that's speculation, because there's like three sensors there packed close between the speaker and the camera lens.

    Oh, and while I'm sure its not what Outatime meant, but I thought I would throw out there that "drilling" anything out on the screen of your phone is almost always a bad idea. LOL. :D
