    I think we both might be right, because I just did as you described and sure enough the lights come on, and then go off when I move my hand away. But when its fully charged or has a higher charge, the lights stay on.

    Yep, my OG does this also. Motorola, quality engineering.

    Yea I know its the proximity sensor, we are just trying to figure out if there is a difference of it when the lights stay on all the time when the battery is charged and go off with a lower battery level. As Jimmy pointed out, if you cover the sensor the lights do come on. The staying on part is what I'm unsure what triggers that even if there is plenty of light. As I mentioned, I had plenty of light when I first noticed this, but when battery dropped below 50% the lights would come on if I waved my hand in front of it, then go off after a few seconds.

    Yeah, I know. I just wanted to chime in and say I think Motorola makes great products. It's impressive that even my old OG has this function.

    Sorry to interrupt, carry on with the experiments. That's one of the best things about getting a new phone, finding out all of the cool little nuggets it has. Have fun! :-)

    I'm at 70% battery right now and when I unlock my Droid, in a fully lit office, the lights are off. If I hold my finger over the sensor, the lights come on. I'll pay closer attention when I see them start to "flicker" to see if anything is affecting the sensor.

    Thanks for the info guys!
