Samsung Galaxy S5: How To Use Eye Tracking Feature

The Samsung Galaxy S5 has many great new features and some have called it the best smartphones ever created. One icon that people keep asking questions about is what is the eye tracking icon in the status bar of the Galaxy S5. For those that want to know what the eye icon means in the Galaxy S5 status bar, the eye symbol means that Smart Stay is activated, which is a feature that can illuminate the display as long as you look at it.

The Galaxy S5 eye tracking symbol appears at regular intervals and then disappears again. What this means is that when the eye icon is activate and on the status appear, it tells you that the Samsung Galaxy S5 is checking to see if you’re watching the screen or not. This works with the front camera of the Galaxy S5 and checks for simple patterns, whether you’re still watching the screen to activate the Smart Stay feature.


How to turn ON Smart Stay eye symbol on Samsung Galaxy S5:

  1. Turn on the Galaxy S5
  2. Go to Menu
  3. Select on Settings
  4. Select on Display
  5. Browse for the option called “Stay Smart”
  6. Check the box
  7. The eye icon will now appear in the status bar of the Galaxy S5


Also, the “Smart Stay” feature for the Galaxy S5 is in the same menu. Smart Stay will allow the smartphone to actively turn the display ON and OFF based on eye recognition. The way that Smart Stay works is the eye tracking is based on the front sensors of the Galaxy S5 camera which can recognize when the user looks away and dim or turn off the display, then turn back on once you glance back at the screen.
