    Wondering if there is any app which can be used to test light and proximity sensor on Windows 10 mobile?

    For the light meter, or more accurately the ambient light sensor, you can try one of those "lux meter" apps. Alternatively, a simpler method would be to set the brightness to auto then go to a dark room - if the screen dims down, then it is working properly.

    For the proximity sensor, simply try making a call and cover the earpiece... if the screen goes off, then it is working.

    there is no such app for windows 10 mobile, but what i can recall is there was one for windows phone 8.1 where you could test almost every hardware on your device. be it mic, speaker, compass...

    further as mentioned by gpobernardo you could follow his steps which could produce accurate results.

    For the proximity sensor, if you have visual studio or have a programmer friend, you can compile this sample

    https://github.com/Microsoft/Windows...roximitySensor

    and sideload it to your phone.

    Use AIDA64. Navigate to Sensors section and this is for testing Light sensor, Just take a look at Lux readings. As for Prox. sensor the method described by @gpbernando is the easy way.

    V535's suggestion is more specific - try the AIDA64 app.
