Phone is a little over a year old. It is not the proximity sensor though, for as I have stated before I do not use this feature at all, and this problem has only occurred in waze.
I figured it out though, and it is most definitely a bug for I can repeat it over and over again. When the voice command feature is set to "off" (i.e. disabled), but the activation is set for "hover & 3 fingers", the screen will flicker when a hand is waved in front of the sensor as if to bring up the voice command prompt. However, seeing how this feature is turned off at the time, it automatically cancels out, so fast that all that is seen is just a flicker and no prompt.
The only way I have resolved this at this time is by setting activation to "3 finger tap only".
This is something I believe waze should look into, for I believe the "hover & 3 fingers" is the default setting which I'm sure may be causing other users to experience this bug when they have the voice command feature turned off.
