One user posted on Samsung Community and explained it in detail. He said, 'This problem started when the system software update was applied to my phone over the weekend. This thing is waking up every 10seconds! It literally wakes me up at night now because of this behavior. Guess I shouldn't have thrown out that alarm clock'.

The user tried hard reset but was not able to solve the issue.

As per some reports on reddit and Samsung's own forum, users are experiencing this issue for quite some time now. Samsung has acknowledged to this issue and reports suggest that is a bug that is giving a hard time to its users.

Users claim that the display wakes up randomly after 10 seconds or so making the battery drain faster than usual. Although this issue is not widespread it is giving a hard time to number of users.

Some Samsung S8/S8+ users say that the issue is persistent while charging the phone wirelessly. Others claim that the screen wakes up randomly with or without wireless charging.


It seems that formatting the phone or wiping the cache clean doesn't seem to help the users, nor does tweaking with display settings help.

Samsung has not provided any solution till now, hopefully the issue gets resolved as quickly as possible. We will keep you updated with the reports on the bug affecting the Samsung's flagship devices. For more technology news, follow
