    Question Little eye on my status bar

    I did an update the other day, and now I keep seeing this little eye on the status bar next to the Bluetooth icon.
    It will only flash for a bit and disappear.

    Does anyone have any idea what this it?

    Smart Stay in your display settings is on. Supposed to keep your screen on as long as you are looking at it.

    It's Samsung watching you watching the screen so they know what your doing with "their"...er..."Sprint's" phone.

    I find smart stay to be pretty reliable for me, as long as I'm actually looking at the screen. Smart Rotate doesn't work worth a darn.

    I thought it was a good feature, but it wasn't for me.

    Weird. I just noticed it now too. But I'm pretty sure it's the "Smart Stay" feature.
