    Have no idea what a "sensor flex"is.

    If your talking about the proximity sensor (that cuts the screen off during a call and whatnot) then yes, it is all the same piece and flex cable.

    Yes the proximity sensor and earpiece are together in one part, with the same cable.

    It is a cheap part.

    I would also like to know if the Sensor Flex cable is difficult / easy to replace.

    I've seen them on eBay for less than a pittance; are they reliable?

    I could swap it out in about 5 minutes start to finish. If you have tech experience then no, its not hard.
