    I'd like to know that when "pocket mode" is on does the proximity sensor stays on for always? even after turning off the display?

    It should only activate when the screen is on.

    I'm on the latest officia firmware and it's always on when the pocket mode is activated

    you mean when you point another phones camera to that sensor, you can see it blinking? (just like you can see it when you point it to a tv remotes sensor and press buttons on the remote)
    i dont think that drains the battery a lot

    i think the proximity sensor should always stay on, because it Should detect when the phones in the pocket and it also should detect when the phones out of the pocket to light up screen at times like ambient mode. according to my knowledge proximity sensor is on always. battery drain is not affected much

    is it really necessary? it should be on when the screen turns on to see if it's in a pocket or not

    No there are some ambient modes or wake screen when out of pocket features... these all work with the proxy sensors help

    No, that could cause a huge delay when you turn on the screen, for example: you press the power button and the screen would take 1-2 seconds (Or even more) to turn on because it would have to wait for the proximity sensor to detect if the screen is covered with something.
    The energy consumption of the proximity sensor is so so little, that it is negligible.
