    I think as long as it can detect your face it should work. It works the majority of the time for me. It's a big phone so if you hold it too high to your face it might not work

    I always thought it needed to see movement. When u turn it on it shows an animation of a person looking at the screen and then glancing back up to the top. Staring at it might not be good enough, otherwise I have no idea.

    Ditto.

    I forgot I'd even turned it on. Not sure it's ever even worked for me... Which is a shame. I honestly imagine it becoming essential for all smart phones once the tech works fully...

    Mine seems to work. I remember on previous Notes that there used to be an notification that it was keeping the screen on. But I just tested it and it worked.

    Mine is working. AT&T version. It doesn't work well in low light though. If I just have my bedside lamp on, I set my screen timeout to 1 minute.

    it appears to be a function of time. try writing slowly any word. the slower you go the less you can write. write fast and you get more drawing

    So this were it went. I was posting in another thread when I answered a phone call. When I came back my post had disappeared. Weird that it posted in a different thread than what I was responding to.

    It doesn't work for me either ...it even gave me a pop up to check if sensor is blocked .

    Case is not near the sensor .

    THAT is a Smartphone - blaming something else for Smartstay not working lol.
    Great phone though- getting very long Screen On Time and the AUDIO is what I have been waiting for ever since the first smaller cell phones came out .

    Smart Stay ...no I even thought maybe resting my hand over sensor so it would 'know ' I was there - nope .

    My Camera was on selfie mode ...maybe switching that will help ?

    Winking at the Sensor ?
