Proximity sensor always active - screen turns off randomly?
I first thought there was some problem with my Pinephone's screen or its driver since it turns off randomly, e.g. while web browsing. After a while I realised that this happens when I have my fingers close to the top front of the phone - i.e. this is caused by the proximity sensor.

Has anyone else noticed this? Shouldn't the proximity sensor only be active during a phone call?
