The Smart Stay Feature on Your Galaxy Tab S2

Smart features enhance the way you interact with your device. Using built-in cameras and sensors, your device can coordinate with your movements for seamless operation.

Smart Stay

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.

  1. From the Home screen, touch Apps > Settings.    

  2. Touch Display.   

  3. Touch Smart stay.    

  4. Touch the slider to turn Smart stay on.  

Smart stay works best under the following conditions:

  • When the device is held steady and upright.

  • When the device is in well-lit conditions, but the screen is not in direct light.

  • When the front-facing camera is not being used by another app.
