Mainly when I'm playing a game in landscape mode, the screen looks like it changes pixel dimensions for a split second then shows the S-Cover screen and the only way it goes back to normal is if I take my fingers off the screen and point the screen to the light in the room.
If I turn the phone 180° (so the sensors are on the top side of the phone when it's in landscape mode) and it happens 90% less than the other way its flipped.

Today it happened when in portrait mode while using Google drive app....I went to long press something to select it & every time i did, the screen came up.

Originally I thought I was blocking the Proximity and/or LUX sensors but it's not the case. I have a feeling it's to do with memory or CPU, as it tends to come on and off a lot quicker when my fingers are on the screen or tap the screen while its having its emotional breakdown
