Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus Screen Turns On by Itself


Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus are one of the best smartphones released in 2017. But this doesn’t mean that these legendary smartphones are free of problems. Recently, users have reported that their devices are waking up accidentally. The issue occurs when they turn off the device by either pressing the power button or leaving it idle until it goes to sleep. The screen will then turn on for around 10 seconds, then turn right off. According to the reports, this happens multiple times in a day and eventually, it leads to quick battery drainage.
