Annoying ! everytime i am speaking on the phone my cheek touches the screen and mutes the phone. I thought the phone was supposed t have a sensor to prevent this from happening

There is a sensor right above the earpiece. Make a call and over up this area with your hand, and the screen should black out. Then try tapping the screen once it's blacked out. If you can't activate the mute this way you are probably putting the phone against your cheek before the ear speaker touches your ear while on a call.

also, if you're using some sort of case, that can mess up the sensor. most cases have a hole cut out for the sensor, but not all do. no hole=no working sensor

The sensor will work if the hole is covered. It will just keep the sensor blackout activated all the time. You won't be able to use the touchscreen, in other words.
