There may be another issue with the new iPhone's hardware. First we had discolored screens and radios that crap out when you hold them wrong. Now rumors are bubbling up that a bunk proximity sensor may soon need adding to the list. PMP Today reports that multiple users have complained that their iPhone's are unable to recognize when a face is placed in close proximity.

Functionally, this means the phone will be prone to letting your face press the mute or 'end call' button. There hasn't been a huge uproar over this one yet, so the problem may be confined to a relatively small subset of users. New iPhone users, have you noticed this issue? If so, drop us an email.
