Small bug, still I'd like to take it up. When I lock my screen (by swiping from on top) it sometimes 1 or 2 seconds after turns back even though the phone is on a table.

EDIT: I can definitely reproduce this in low battery conditions. The phone unlocks itself to show me the low battery warning, and I have an auto lock code with no delay. Basically, if my phone is stolen and somebody wants in, they'll just have to wait for a low battery warning.

I don't know how to reproduce your specific issue, but I'll add something more to your question by edit that I reproduced by mere chance just now.

That's a really good point, thanks for elaborating!

Yeap, it'd be worth if somebody can reproduce as well in case it was my mistake. It's quite hard to reproduce at will :-)

also have the rewaking issue once in a while... just happens randomly... this could be the reason for pocket calls (if the phone rewakes unnoticed and is put in a pocket)

I can also confirm this bug. I think I've received some calendar notifications during browsing, but I haven't dismissed those notifications as they didn't appear on the screen (or I maybe swiped back to browser). Screen was unlocking by itself and power button did not lock the device at all.

Next sw update should give some help on this. At least there will be a few device lock improvements coming. New application settings will also have option for confirmation step before phonecall, so pocket calls can be blocked with that one too.
