    The sensors on my S4 (GT-i9505) are currently not working. There is also a lag, sometimes up to 10s, from pressing the home button till the unlock screen shows. The sensors are recognized on cpu-z but are not shown as working. I have factory reset the phone several times and occasionally they work for 5-10 minutes before stopping again so I'm guessing this is a software fault not a hardware fault?

    I have read on another thread about someone having similar problems and that it was a warrenty case. However I had to replace the screen on mine 3 months back myself as the digitizer broke in my pocket (I'm guessing from bending) and now my warranty is void.

    I have tried flashing the same UK firmware with odin and also tried a German version... still no luck

    Does anyone have any ideas as I'm stuck? Any help or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance! Jack

    Welcome to the forums!
    Do you have S Voice enabled? Sometimes that increases lag about the home button press.
