    Okay I got the new samsung galaxy s4 like the 3rd day it came out. I am in love with it but for the past few days it has been lighting up like I am getting a notification. But there is nothing there it lights up for about 5 sec and then turns off it does this for probably 4 times in a row and then stops and does it throughout the day. I dont know what it is doing I have googled it tried to fix it. I have restarted the phone took the battery out for more than 15 mins. And nothing I don't know why it is doing it can anyone help me fix this problem

    I have also just deleted some apps that may be the problem and I am waiting to see if it does. it But I need ths fixed it is using up my battery bad.

    This is an air-gesture feature called "Quick Glance" that can be disabled.

    Settings > My Device > Motions and gestures > Air Gesture > Quick Glance (Turn Off to disable)

    I would suggest a factory reset. One of ours at work displayed the same issue you describe. I finally convinced them to do a reset and that fixed it.

    Drop it in some water and leave it there overnight. If the screen no longer lights up, problem solved.
