    Is there anyway of locking the phone during a call, or moving the "end call' icon?
    My mates are getting fed up with me hanging up on them all the time
    Thanks

    Hit the power button before putting it to your ear should help. It will turn off the screen and not rely on the proximity sensor.

    Hmmm, sounds like a faulty proximity sensor. Do you have a screen protector on your phone?

    Try restarting the phone. Sometimes it's as simple as that but if you continue to have issues I would seek warranty replacement.

    Well i just blew on it a bit and clean it and now it seems to work.
    I dont know if its a software thing or bug, but when the brightness goes up because there is more ambient light, when there is less ambient light it takes a while for the brightness to go down, or sometimes it doens't and I need to set it to low then to automatic again

    ^^

    Yeah it is possible it has some dust under the lens. Mine has the issue of getting dust over the FFC but the prox sensor seems to still be working. I used a can of compressed air to clean mine out every now and then.

    I have issues with brightness too. Sometimes it's not going up after turning the phone on. So far, it's the only problem I have. I won't exchange it just for that.

    let's hope it's a software glitch...
    I think the low brightness should be lower. It should have more brigthness level, or a bar like in android
