    Hi there,

    My one week old S3's screen automatically comes on and then turns off. It is quite random and I can't put my finger on why this is happening.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    might be screen turn off time is very short it activates it when you are not looking at phone

    I'm not sure if that's causing the issue.

    For me it's one of two things (I believe):
    • WiFi Open Networks being found and making my screen turn on
    • Apps sending notifications (such as adverts, etc.)
    Any thoughts on the above guys?...

    Thanks

    For ads: Lookout's and TrustGo's ad detectors are nice; I uninstall anything "pushy" or "leaky".

    Otherwise, some more info would help, i.e. what is your timeout, face stay thing setting, what is on the screen when it happens/before it happens...

    Thanks for the info on the detector apps, will check them out.

    I uninstalled Music Download Paradise Lite and Barcode Scanner yesterday, along with turning off Network notification. Smart Face Stay setting is off, as is all motion options. Since then, it hasn't turned on.

    I do have a secure email app (Good Technology) for my work installed on my phone, that might be sending calendar notifications (it can't be for emails as my mobile data is always off)

    Thanks

    i noticed that when reaching full 100% charge that my handset turns the screen on for a few seconds before going back off.

    Mine does this also when it gives a notification that the battery is charged and to remove it from the charger.
