Android 7.0 limitations

How do you disable the proximity sensor?
I don't want the screen to go blank when I am talking over the hp.

The navigation bar disappear while using some apps.
How to make it appear other?
there is nothing we can change in the SETTING button and
there is nothing on the hp for us to make it appear.

These are features not limitations.

Why would u want the screen to remain on while talking on the phone? Your face will just touch the screen and accidently press buttons while you talk if the proximity sensor is not working. I can imagine all the times your cheeks will press the end call button if this is not working.

For nav bar, just swipe from edge of screen or tap the screen to activate the nav bar la. Lots of people want full screen mode on media apps so it makes sense for Google to implement this feature. My advice is to get used to it.

u first time using smartphone? even if u use iPhone, when u making a call, ur proximity sensor will kick in when u put it at your face.

this is implemented since the starting of smart phone is available in the market.

i tell u wad u can do, dismantle ur phone and remove the proximity sensor. that should do the trick.

Hope you are not envisaging this use while driving.

I have no personal experience in this use, but google is your best friend:

to make the navigation bar appear again,
go the the bottom edge of the screen.

swipe from bottom to top.
then it will appear.

to disable the proximity sensor, it is impossible to do it.
so either hold handphone far away from our ear and on the volume to the maximum.
Alternatively, use the earphone to talk.
