How do I use the Smart Stay Feature on my Samsung Galaxy S7?

The Smart stay feature uses the front-facing camera to sense when you are looking at your device so the screen stays on regardless of the screen timeout setting.

Screens and settings available may vary by wireless service provider and software version.

Smart Stay Feature Galaxy S7

  1. From the Home screen, touch Apps .

  2. Touch Settings .

  3. Scroll to and touch Display or Display and wallpaper .

    It may be necessary to touch the DEVICE tab and then touch Display.

  4. Touch Smart stay, and touch the slider to turn Smart stay on.

Smart stay works best when:

  • The device is steady and upright.

  • The environment is well-lit but the screen is not in direct light.

  • The front-facing camera is not in use by another application.
