    What you're seeing is the proximity sensor of the device. This will activate once you receive or make a call. The main purpose of the proximity sensor is to disable the screen whenever you put the phone near your ear. This is to prevent you from accidentally disconnecting the call. This also works just by covering the sensor using your hand or any object. This feature is available to all other Nokia touch screen devices

    Like a notification LED? No they don't have that. Could you post a picture or video showing exactly what it is?

    Yes, there is a very small red light under the proximity sensor which blinks up when you call someone or when you press the lock button. But I am not sure whether if it blinks on low battery. :)

    i have the same problem with Nokia Lumia 520 and don't know what to do...i even tried phone reset but that didn't help...so I'm going to take the phone to Nokia Care Center and we'll see what is going to happen...but that's just weird that everyone have the same problem and they (Nokia/Microsoft) know about and the only thing they said to me is take your phone to care center...it's obvious that this is the software problem...or they just made phones with broken proximity sensors (LOL)

    I have experienced this problem twice. Restarting the phone solves it.

    I, Subhas Bose, would like to inform you that, I am using a Nokia Lumia 520 (Old IMEI no. (removed for privacy reasons), NewIMEI no. (removed for privacy reasons) which has already been repaired from Nokia care (Manasi (818_504886), 22/1, Ashutosh GhoshRoad, Sethpukur, Barasat, West Bengal, 700124, Contact No. 9874436633) for several times. But a new problem has been arisen. The upper red sensor of the phone; which generally blinks at calling time; I found that it is also blinking (in low brightness)when the phone is kept in lock screen condition. But when the phone is not in locked screen condition; it means when I am using the phone for internet;(not for talking) it's not blinking. It's normally glowing when I am calling. But it should not blink even in low brightness in lock screen condition. Why it is happening? What should be done?

    Its probably normal.
    You have double-tap-to-wake don't you? That feature makes use of the proximity sensor when activated.

    I appreciate you wholeheartedly. But according to different information of internet and opinions of users I am perplexed a bit. The sensor of my phone is generally blinking when I am taking. There is no any problem. But I noticed that the sensor is also barely seen when it is kept in locked screen condition. Then it blinks in very low brightness and you can see it if you notice it very minutely in darkness. It never blinks when I normally operate it for internet or any other purpose apart from talking.
    Sir; you just inform me it is normal or not. I love my phone as much as my wife and any kind of abnormality gives me lot of pain. Please make me ascertain about that.

    If you have a Nokia Lumia 520, just lock it's screen and try to see it's upper side red sensor minutely in darkness. Can it be seen or not? Is it blinking in low brightness? Inform me. If you can do it, that would be great for me. I'm avidly waiting for your reply. Thank you.

    I didn't know any Lumia device had a blinking light. At least I haven't seen it on my 920.

    I have not still been replied. The reply of my query is yet to be given. Does anyone not use NOKIA Lumia 520? I have asked a simple question. The upper red sensor of my phone (NOKIA Lumia 520) is visible (but low brightness) when it is kept in locked screen condition. On screen locked condition, it blinks in very low brightness and you can see it if you notice it very minutely in darkness. Is it ok or not?

    That's a normal behavior if you have double tap to wake activated. Check your settings on the touch option
