Proximity Sensor Finder tells you a few things about your device:
1. Does the device have a proximity sensor?
2. Is an object in close proximity detected?
3. Does this device support actual proximity distances or just "covered" and "uncovered" sensor states?
4. For supported devices, exactly how far away is the object?
5. How long has the sensor been covered?
6. How much power is the proximity sensor consuming?
We developed Proximity Sensor Finder as an internal testing tool but it soon became apparent that there was a need in the market for just such an app, so we decided to ship it and make it free!

Works, thanks! Why the permissions? The proximity sensor on my new phone was in an unintuitive place on the left, I had always assumed it was on the right like my previous phone, so this neat app helped me understand why my screen stayed on during calls (large phone, hard for such a sensor to be covered by a right ear!) But why the permissions? Hope you aren't snooping too much/leaving me spam, you'll spoil an otherwise great app
Great app Wanted to test my sensor after replacing the screen on my phone. The sensor is working great even though I covered it with tape. No idea how it functions but happy I don't have to take it apart again :)
Does its task very well. But now that I've found the sensor with it's help, I have no use left for it. Uninstalling, but definitely 5 stars.
Does exactly what it says on the tin Confirmed that I have a proximity sensor. Located it. Confirmed that mine reports on our off, not distance. Perfect.
Does exactly as says. HTC Inspire/Desire HD only registers 0 or 9, and won't register anything less than 50ms.
GREAT MINDS THINK ALIKE! Pretty good for free! It's no LoJack but it's nice! I rate 3*'s because it does find your phone w the GPS sustem. My only con is the inevitable battery! There must be one of you good brainiac tec's that can make an app that will still work after the battery has died. My daughter rated this so listen shes extremly intelligent!
Does what is says on the tin It's a good app. If you need to find your proximity sensor, use this.
No frills Does exactly what it says. I don't need it, so I'll delete it now but it worked haha
Best proximity app Well it was the first and only one that I installed. But it does work.
Don't let it's oldness fool you It works, and works great.
Too many permissions Wants all kinds of stuff like GPS access. Doesn't work at all on my phone.
Good one I was looking for some info I got everything thanks developer
It works It does what it supposed to do. Now i can safely uninstall it
If you need it If you need this sort of thing, it's perfect.
Works as advertised Worked well enough to tell me that the proximity sensor on my phone was operational.
A true lifesaver I use Gravity Screen and one day waving my hand over the phone wouldn't wake it up anymore. This app, and the comments here, led me to the cause: just cleaned the dusty case protector and problem solved! This app should come with smartphones by default. Very well done.
No nonsence, good stuff. Does exactly what it says it does.
Loved it I just relived the sensor for calls which was factory set for not to work on calls on Micromax canvas phone????? No more touch problem while on call. Super app.
Got all my vote Does 'exactly' what it says can't go wrong.
Doesn't work on redmi note
No gimmicks Does what it says. I used this app to make sure my sensor was working.
Very nice app to find proximity sensor....thanks.
incredible incredible shows 0 and 1 cm, and nothing in between, oh well, nice thought
HTC rezound Awesome app, helped me diagnose a dusty proximity sensor! Thx for saving me the trip to the store..
Works.... Handy tool to verify that your PS is functioning.
Exactly what it says on the tin The Nexus 4 shows either 5cm or 0cm for anyone that cares.
Good. Was having trouble with my nexus 4 sensor. Install this to troubleshoot. Turn out it's the screen protector that causing problems. Uninstall it more as I don't need it anymore.
Useful app Small yet handy app..
It found my proximity sensor Or I could have googled where the proximity sensor was. Either way, app works as it should.
Works perfectly Helps diagnose problems with my proximity sensor. Does the job perfectly!
Work on Defy Works great. Motorola defy will only report 3 or 100 cm.
Cool Does what it says. Nexus S only shows 5 or 0.
Not much of an app to review, but functions how it should
Helped me find my proximity sensor! Worked as described! Thanks! :-)
Works Just works. Thanks for making this tool
Motorola Droid A855 Awesome!! Fixed my sensors!!
Did what I needed it to Helped me confirm that my prox sensor was registering improperly and thus also helped me solve my black screen problem.
Awesome Great recommended app
Brilliant no nonsense app. Helped me find the proximity sensor. I had no idea where it was otherwise. Thank you so much
Was helpful in telling me where my sensor is... would have been good if there had been a gieger counter sound, or something. Would have made it fun.
Simple and Effective I couldn't readily tell where the proximity sensor was and this simple tool helped. Mainly for the other app that wakes my screen up when proximity sensor is covered (without having to use my power button hard to reach under the shell case each time)
This app just tells me there is a Proximity sensor but never helps me locate it. It is stuck on waiting for data, I have tried to cover the whole device as instructed but no luck, maybe it is not active. I have an RCT-1000p 10.1 inch tablet running android kit-kat 4.4.
Great simple app I was trying to find out whether or not my Samsung Galaxy S5 Active had a proximity sensor in order to be able to use another app called the Black Screen of Life, which enables you to listen to YouTube music without your battery being drained by the videos. With Proximity Sensor Finder, I was able to locate the sensor in less time than it took to download it. It's very handy, simple and convenient. Was very happy to have found it.
Works as advertised, but when trying to uninstall it blocks me with a pop up!
Does what it gotta do and does it perfectly. Interface is simple and smooth
Finally! Bless you developer! I had been facing issues and this app really helped me. Thanks a ton for making this relevant app!
Yea well Works good enough but when I went to unistall it pops up the logo and don't allow me to uninstall
Potential is good idea To weak at 1cm distance no point. Also frozen as soon as used twice. :uninstall but hopeful of improvements
Location For all of you who didn't know where is the proximity sensor in your mobile....its always located on the top of the front face usually next to your front camera. It usually looks like your front camera...but in some phones it may be hidden beneath the device cover!
Why so many permissions? Read USB storage? Phone Status and Identity? etc. etc. Uninstalling it! Guys please check its permissions and then opt whether to install it or not! Its just a proximity sensor tester, then why so many such permissions?
Most fun you can have with your pants on. very professional! I love it!
Useless This app is useless. Does nothing.
My font was so huge that could not read anything fit about one letter per screen
