    So yesterday I pulled out my s4 and noticed that the lock screen layout was changed. When I pressed the power button, the "life companion", time and date were smooshed on the left side of the lock pin layout. When i rebooted my phone, the issue resolved itself. Just thought it was worth mentioning to see if anyone has had this issue.

    That actually happened to my mom on her S4. What she did to fix it was go into settings and go to lock screen and choose the widgets in the layout you want then save so it can go back to how it was before. No reboot needed.

    So it happened again just now. I dont understand this. I didnt have to reboot my phone this time. It corrected itself, but damn. It gets annoying when it does happen.

    I just went in and clicked and un-clicked some of the settings for lock screen and display, just to jog it. It worked and i put everything back. I don't know how I got to this layout in the first place, so i won't be able to replicate.

    hope this helps.
