    Does it on my s7 also. This is especially annoying when charging it at night since it illuminates the whole room.

    Galaxy Note 4 w/Marshmallow was doing the same thing. Turned off Daydream and it has stopped for now. Just an FYI...

    Anybody figure out why this happening, noticed that mine has started doing the same. Like other people have said, flashes on, but no notifications being shown

    Mine has been doing this for weeks now, can't figure out the culprit. I've just started getting used to it and ignore it but it is annoying.

    I think it has to do with Sync being set up automatically when connected to wifi. I turned mine off and it seems to be fine now. Screen no longer turns on and off automatically when not in use

    My Tmobile Note 3 on Lollipop 5.0 does this sometimes....the screen will turn on randomly by itself, no text or call.

    I stumbled into a resolution for this for my phone.
    Once I verified it was not app related (happened in safe mode and with 0 notifications coming in)

    Figured out it was the magnet for the magnetic car holder that i had attached to the phone. In my case, and in many others I'm sure, there is a magnet under the Gal 6 Motorolla logo for the flip book style cases. When you flip the cover open, the magnet sticks at the back, and the screen auto turns on.

    Once I removed the magnet, the problem stopped.

    Have any of you tried to turn display off? My fiance's S7 screen would seemingly turn on when he let the screen get dark (anything covering the screen when it's laying face up). I have the S7 but do not have this issue. Comparing them, he didn't have his set to "Keep Screen Turned Off" in display under settings. This eliminates the screen from turning on until you hit the power button or home button. Hope this helps.
