    Typically the only time that would happen is if there is a notification of some sort.

    See I thought so too. But when my phone is on my desk facing up it will light up. Not all the way but it will light up and be dim for no reason. No notifications or anything

    It appears that the front camera is measuring ambient light levels and adjusting the brightness based on that. If you lock the phone when the camera is covered up, it is dim, if you move it to sunlight, it's bright.

    Is there a way to disable this? It's rather annoying lol
