At first we must state that TAKTIK by LUNATIK ™ is the best iPhone case on the market, for design, style, effective protection. Again Matt Wilson made a great job with passion and experience as a real master of Design. But i discovered that the proximity sensor with some models of iPhone 4 and 4s is not functional when the case is fitted, due to reflections of the Gorilla Glass.
Lucky I found a Solution for this issue:
Some users already discovered a trick to solve the matter by adding the semi-matt 3MScotch “Magic Adhesive Tape” inside the case on the back of the glass over the proximity sensor window. Ok, but this is not always effective: instead the solution is to put a 3M Black Matte vinyl film (the same used for signs and stickers) with a shape of an “m” so that the “m” base touches the window of speaker below the one of the proximity sensor. The area must be divided approx. as the below sensors. This will allow separation between sensors and isolate the areas of the upper Gorilla Glass so no interference happens.
IT FUNCTIONS !!!!
01 27th 2013 – At Lunatik they are analyzing this patch solution. They must verify if it’s effective on all models of iPhone. In reality this is not a common issue to all iPhones 4 4s but only to some slots of production where for different reasons Apple modified the distance between the proximity and luminosity sensor. I suppose Lunatik will add in box the piece of tape with a note to be applied only by affected users.
It’s a very easy task but it F U N C T I O N S !
