    You're not alone. It happens to me as well. Too annoying. Gave it to Samsung service center. They said it was some software that was causing it and erased the phone. Didn't change anything and it started happening again the same day. Please let me know if u get a solution for this its bugging me a lot

    I have found the solution after experiencing a similar problem myself. What happened is the phone thinks it has the s view cover on. When there is a change in light setting it thinks the s view cover was opened so it unlock the phone for you. To disable this feature you would go to Settings > Accesory > unchecked Automatic unlock.

    Cheers!
