Default Screen flicker to home screen

Every so often my screen briefly flashes back to the home screen then back to the app im using.

It seems inconsistent with no pattern to app nor how often it happens.

has anyone else seen this or know what to turn off to stop it?

I would try a complete factory reset to solve the problem, because it is not a hardware issue causing the flickering, it's the software because it's flashing back to the homescreen not just flashing black like it would if there was a hardware problem. If that doesn't help go to your carrier or contact Samsung Support.
