Hey guys, 
My phone randomly starts to ring without someone trying to call me. 
There is no change on the homescreen, and I have no alerts that have the same tone as my ringtone. 
Any ideas?

The same here. It happens once a month on average. Not very often, but still annoying. It happened 2 or 3 times in the middle of the night, 100% loud (despite the phone was muted) and without any information on AOD screen. After opening the case, the ringing ceased.

Just had a thought? Could it be someone you know or family member that has access either to your find my samsung account or your galaxy smartwatch if you have one?? If you click the find my phone button on watch or on find my mobile it makes the phone ring loud but doesn't say anything

Bingo! That was it! I'm using Miband 6, which is paired with my Samsung. Since I was using a simple screen tap to enter Miband's menu, I accidentally switched various options in my smart band while sleeping just by touching the screen. Sometimes it was just "find my device".

I have changed the way of entering the menu from "tap" to "swipe", so my phone's loud alarms shouldn't happen anymore.

AshS21, great thanks for your advice!
