Random Lock Screen, even when in use???

Does it happen when you cover the top of the screen?

There are apps that do this when the proximity sensor is covered.

I don't ever cover the top of the screen. To do that, even by accident, would mean I was holding the phone in a way I wouldn't ever hold it. I'm using the same Otterbox cover that I've been using for over a year.

This only began a week ago. It happens completely randomly, a few times an hour at least. It has happened while actively pressing app controls, or reading, or just ended a call.
