    I dont have this issue. You sure its not because of some app that you have installed?

    Try a Restart, Restarting your phone can fix issues like that especially after a system update like Kitkat. Clearing your cache on all your apps can also help with some issues. I use clean master from the Play Store to automate cache clearing.

    lol I just posted the same thread without searching, my bad! I can restart and it is fine, but clearly prefer not to. Can see if I can clean the cache of all apps without doing each individual one..

    I have just figured it out. I went through the settings on my Wife's S4 which are slightly different. The only thing that was different to mine was she had auto brightness switched off. I did the same on my Beast and the problem is solved.

    figured it out on my end as well...I use a cleaner called fast reboot and that clears the cache and all is fine now...
