Why does my Galaxy S4 screen not turn back on after I have just finished a phone call?

Last Update Date : Jan 09. 2018

Last updated: 17 April, 2014

 

The phone has a proximity sensor that checks whether you are on a call or not, and it is this that determines whether the screen should be on or off.

 

This sensor can be influenced by a smudge from sweat, make-up, grease, etc. Please ensure that the top front side of our device is free from such smudges in order to get a stable performance from the sensor.
