What is the Smart Stay feature on my Samsung Galaxy S® 4?

The Smart stay feature uses the front camera to sense when you are looking at your device and keeps the screen from turning off regardless of the screen timeout setting.

  • Using Smart Stay

    To activate the Smart stay feature, from the Home screen, touch Menu  > Settings  > My device  > Smart screen  > Smart stay. When the feature is on, a green check mark will appear.

    Smart stay may not work in the following situations:

    • When the device is docked or not held upright.
    • When the front camera fails to detect face and eyes.
    • When the source of the light is behind you or when using the device in the dark.
    • When the front camera is being used in an application.
