I have my S4's backlight set to full brightness. Yet, it still fades in and out at times. I've read that this could be the result of temperature control protections kicking in and overriding the manual settings. I have a hard time believing that though.

Anyone else experiencing this?

I remember reading something like this when the phone was first released...Settings > My Device > Display > More Settings might have some stuff for you to go through if you haven't checked there already?  Uncheck the "Auto Adjust Screen Tone" option and see if that helps.

Is it all over the phone or only when using the browser? If I remember correctly, there's separate light sensors built into the browser settings.. separate from the auto brightness in the phone's regular settings.

I enjoyed the S4 but found many Battery error message information should not buy
