    my screen comes on automatically all the time which results in many pocket calls and pocket texts. I need to disable this "feature!"

    I did some research and found it is called Ambient Display and it is supposed to be in Settings > Display but it is not there on my phone!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! (Galaxy S5)

    please tell me how I can prevent my phone from automatically turning the screen on all the time !

    thank you

    why in the world would they not make this available in the basic version of android?

    am I the only one that has a problem with the screen coming on when the phone is in my pocket, resulting in all kinds of things happening. sometimes it opens up the music app and starts playing a random song. sometimes it calls someone. it's all because the screen comes on every time I get a text or a facebook message.
