Check the settings to see if the power button is set to end calls. Under accessibility I believe. Mine doesn't end a call when my screen turns off.

Even mine doesn't end call when i press power button during call. I have disable the feature to end call through power button.

That should correct the problem.

It's kind of a silly idea to include such a feature because if the proximity sensors by the earpiece of the phone don't work or are delayed, the power button is the only other way to access the phone's screen.

I changed it now so the power button doesn't hang up the phone instead it "wakes up" the phone.... I am just thinking why the proxmity sensor is not working.........

It should light up your screen when you take your phone away from your ear. Then the screen should light up. But even I prefer to use the side power button to wake up my phone instead of relying on the prox. sensor.

There is a slight delay for screen to light up after you take the phone away from your phase. But also make sure your fingers are clear off the proximity sensor location.
