What is the Smart Stay feature on my Samsung Galaxy S5?
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.
Turn On Smart Stay
From the Home screen, touch Menu > Settings > My device > Smart screen. Mark the Smart stay checkbox to turn on the feature.
Smart stay may not work in the following situations:
When the device is docked or is not held upright.
When the front camera fails to detect face and eyes.
When the source of light is behind you or you are using the device in the dark.
When the front camera is being used by another application.
