    My Tmobile S6 will randomly turn the screen on, as if I hit the power or home buttons. I noticed this while it is sitting on my desk, not being charged. Once I noticed this, I have seen more and more instances of it when I pulll the phone out of my pocket and random apps will be open. This has been causing me to have much lower battery life than expected.

    A quick search in these forums didnt turn anything up for me. Has this happened to anyone else? Or does anyone know a solution? Right now I do not have a case on, just a screen protector.

    Thank you in advance,

    Sounds like a defect. It's still under warranty, so bring it to TMobile (and hope that someone in your store is above the average TMobile salesdroid in knowledge). (Back everything up first in case they replace the phone - see Backing up an Android Device.)

    I just noticed this on my S6 from T-Mo as well. 2-3 times yesterday and once today. Probably a software bug. Hopefully the F8 update will solve it.
