I had problems with the compass, with a stock ROM and with a custom ROM:
Each time I restart the phone, the compass is locked in a given position and I have to recalibrate it to unlock it.

I saw that this problem was not really identified in this thread, but someone described a solution in the Cyanogenmod thread.
As this problem and this solution don't apply only to the CM ROM but possibly to all i9195, I thought it could be helpful to integrate them here:

As explained the calibration works as long as the phone is on, but when I reboot it it's locked again... I don't really understand your proposition but my phone case is 100% plastic, no magnet inside

compass - s4 issue
As described here, nonworking compass on s4 android 4.4 is only samsung s4 and s4 mini issue.
Some application have fixed this, most did not. (C:geo has some nightly fix too, but e.g. GPS Status works).
