Thanks for the advice.

Latest update: The Samsung Service centre is not particularly helpful.
I left my phone there yesterday and explained the problem.
Got the phone back and all they had done was wipe the data and reinstall Android. It has not fixed the pixelated problem.

I explained the problem again in excruciating detail and have left the phone with them once again.
let's see what happens.

Can anyone tell me what actually kicks off the graphics processing as soon as the phone boots?
As in when the very first image is displayed on boot (the Samsung logo with device model number).
Is it the bootloader? If so any ideas on what I can do to reinstall the standard samsung one?

Problem solved.
So after all of that Samsung replaced my screen and it sorted the problem out!

Still, it's very odd that it failed immediately after the 4.4.2 update.
