    Is anyone having sensor issues with the latest KitKat update? Like the auto rotate function just doesn't seem to work and now my barometer has stopped working.

    My proximity sensor is all over the place. When i'm on the phone the screen often lights up for no reason and I end up dialing numbers with my cheek

    My proximity sensor on my note 3 used to go crazy before I sold it. Could sometimes be fixed by spraying air into the top speaker grill.

    Note 3 woes.

    My Note 3 sensor occasionally used to get confused - seemingly thinking the phone was near my ear when I was looking direct at it and it refused to show the screen - a quick tap of power button used to bring it back, but this was with Jellybean.

    Note 3 woes.

    Same thing used to happen with my Note 3.

    OP, a good blast of air will get the gunk out

    On my Note 3, both my proximity sensor and auto rotate work very well. As for the barometer, I downloaded Holo Ambient Temperature and it works fine.

    Same here. One of the major reasons why I ditched it. It wasn't near the phone as the Note 2.
