    Hi all,
    Just made the move from the iphone to the S4, so far I'm pretty glad I have!

    There's just one niggle that's bugging me like crazy though...

    When my lock screen is on and I get an email, whatsapp, game notification etc etc the screen is not lighting up. Only making sounds and vibrating. Seems OK for phone calls and sms messages though.

    As it's a brand new phone, I'm really hoping that this is a setting / app and not a fault with the phone?
    Any help is appreciated!

    wow 178 views but not a single reply?!

    Is this because nobody has the answer or because it's a known issue?

    I do not understand from the description, what you are wanting the phone to show/do?

    If I understand the question correctly, you want your notifications to wake your device and briefly be displayed as a pop-up on the lock screen (just like the IPhone). That is not a feature built into android. With that said, it can be replicated with an app. The link below is an example of an app that replicates that functionality.
