    Default lock screen after every phone call?

    I am a bit annoyed at how the S4's phone app is behaving and I am not sure if this is normal or if something's wrong with my device.

    Here's the problem: After each phone call I make I get the lock screen and need to enter my PIN. This doesn't make any sense to me.

    Here's how my phone is set up precisely: In "My Device/Lock Screen" it says: "Screen will be locked in 1 minute after screen automatically turns off". In the phone settings, the option "Turn off screen during calls" is not activated.

    What is even weirder is that if I activate the option "Turn off screen during calls" the behavior described above only happens if the other person ends the call. If I end it myself, the lock screen doesn't appear.

    Edit: I just found this post relating to the Samsung S3, where one guy has the same problem:
    Screen automatically locks when a call ends

    So it seems I am not the only one. It's strange though that some people claim that they don't get the lock screen after calls.

    I use to use an app called On Call End which would give me the op to have it either go Home or Dialer or other. Not sure if it will work for u but its worth a try.

    Yeah I did try that app but it doesn't appear to be doing anything on my phone. I guess I just have to get used to this weird "feature" of Android. What the developers were thinking is beyond me though...
