    I have a Samsung Galaxy 5. I have a huge problem with it. I think it is more the OS (Marshmellow) than the device.
    Whenever I receive a text message, the screen turns on. This would be fine, but.... if the phone is in my pocket, the random touches to the screen while it's on inside my pocket will do all kinds of things.
    sometimes it answers the text message with a bunch of random characters. or it opens an app and starts doing this.
    the other day I got a phone call with the phone in my pocket. without me doing anything, it sent a text message to the caller telling them "i'm busy, call back later."

    Am I the only one that has this problem? It is happening all the time.

    I need to find a way to make the screen stay OFF, even when a text message or phone call comes in. Or some way to get all these things from happening while it's in my pocket.

    FYI, I do not have a security code on the phone and I don't want one. it's just a swipe to get in. evidently my pocket gets through the swipe pretty easily and often.

    thanks for any ideas
