The same issue is still there in my phone. I am using it without enabling the tap to wake up option.
Try Turning off "Lift to Check Phone" in Gesture Settings. This will stop the phone from unnecessarily waking up.
Facing the same issue from last month..
I have just uninstall netflix... And this solved my problem...
For my part this issue appeared when I was charging my phone while locked. When it was just locked, the ambient display popped randomly for 0.5s
What worked for me was to turn off "lift to check phone".
Turn off double tap to wake up
Not anything to do with swipe down on your fingerprint scanner to see notifications? I turned this of and had solved the problem for me...
Edit- sorry just seen this is the 8.1 thread 🙈
Thank you everyone, I had the same issue and turning the tap to wake option worked and now I can use my device properly. Kudos to y'all.
I resolved my same problem successfully (My phone wake automatically even it's on lock/sleep mode)
Solution :: It's OS software bug in recent update of nokia 8.1, Go to DISPLAY/ADVANCE
Turn-Off Following things
#1 Tap to wake --> OFF
#2 Lock Screen display --> (Don't show notification at all)
#3 Screen Saver --> OFF
Change nokia dont use this phone .... More complaints ... And no good customer service
I haven't an 8.1 but a 5.3 and have been experiencing the same difficulty.
No "ambient" setting on it but I saw somewhere where it might be notifications-related.
I've turned off the "sensitive notifications on lock screen" setting and so far, so good!
Hope this has patched the problem and works for you... I feel your pain!
Edit (just a few minutes, later): nope, the problem persists!
Please go to phone settings. Then there go to system. Then gestures. Then lift to check phone. Turn it off now.
