    1. Hi Suraj Ghosh,
      Thanks for coming and I'm sorry for so late answer.
      If you have enabled "turn off screen during calls" option but the screen is still keep on, then try the following steps to fix your issue:
      1. Try investigating whether you have installed an app that will keep the screen to stay on when certain app is running, e.g: Stay Alive! Keep screen awake app, Keep Screen On app, etc. If any, uninstall the app.
      2. Try disabling and then re-enabling "turn off screen during calls" option in the Phone app settings. If needed, you can try restarting your phone.

  4. Use "Screen On Call" app to keep screen on during call. There is no need to turn proximity sensor off. It will keep working and if you move you phone to your ear, screen will go off, but if you keep it on the table or away from any blocking objects, screen will stay on, so you will be able to use keypad to punch more numbers or for whatever reason you want screen to stay on.
