Galaxy S9 - Enable Smart Stay (SM-G960W)

Last Update Date : Feb 09. 2019

Smart Stay

When you’re catching up on news or reading a long magazine piece, you don’t want the screen to turn off on you. Enable Smart stay to keep you and your phone tuned in. Let’s get started.

Screens and settings available may vary depending on your Canadian wireless service provider and your software version.

Enable Smart Stay

The Smart stay feature prevents the display from turning off while you are looking at the device.

1 From the Home screen, swipe up or down to access the Apps screen.
2 Touch Settings.
3 Touch Advanced features.
4 Touch Smart stay.
5 To turn on Smart stay, touch the slider:
Galaxy S9 - How do I enable the Smart stay feature on my Samsung Galaxy S9 (SM-G960W)?

Smart stay works best when you hold your phone upright and steady, you are in a well-lit place, but not direct sunlight, and when the front camera is not being used by another app.
