    Yeah I can't seem to get mine working either. I can use air gestures while viewing photos and I am able to swipe left and right. But I can't answer a phone call or wake my phone by swiping my hand over the phone. I also can't get the air view feature to work either. I'm curious to see how many people are also experiencing this issue.

    Yeah. I even did a few restarts and toggled them on and off several times to see if that fixed it but I didn't have any luck

    Does the Air Gesture icon appear in the top bar? It should be there when you are on a screen that accepts air gestures. I find in the browser I need to swipe down from the notification bar area towards the bottom of the screen to change pages.

    The gestures seem to work best in florescent lighting like in an office. I have a much higher success rate at work than at home.

    Ok so air gestures works in browser. I was under the assumption that air gestures worked when someone called as well though. Maybe I'm wrong. I have yet to find an area on the phone where air view works.

    Well there is Air Call-Accept. It is supposed to answer an incoming call when you wave your hand over the screen right to left. I just tried it and it works. Also, if there is a contact on the screen the phone will dial the contact when you place the phone to your ear. Just tried that as well and it works.

    For waking the phone and answering calls, swiping your hand over the Samsung logo while the device is laying on a flat surface seems to be necessary. As far as the browser/gallery are concerned, it can be used while in the hand. Your hand should be only a few inches above the sensor when swiping. Out of all the "gimmicky" features, Air Gesture is easily my favorite and I find myself using it often to wake my phone up and scroll through the gallery.

    Air View can be used to preview messages more than one line in length in the messages application. It can be used on Flipboard, on the stock video player, on the calendar (while in the application, not on the widget), and in the gallery as a preview of all the photos under a certain album.

    Don't worry, it's just another useless gimmick of the Galaxy S4. I played with them for about 5 minutes when I first received my phone and have not used them since.

    You must use the Samsung apps..ie IE for browser; "mail" for mail , etcin order for the air gestures to work.

    I tried the screen shot and it worked once out of 50 tries. I should think this should work with all apps. I think it just a gimmick but the layout of the power button opposite the volume button makes the alternative method a bit iffy at times too. On iphone power button was on top and never had problem. Maybe with time I'll get used to this. For the camera however voice activation works great with 'cheese'.

    I thought my air gestures weren't working either, the whole time I was using the Google Chrome app instead of the Internet app. The air gestures DON'T work on the Chrome app but it does work on the Internet app.

    Even when I use default apps, the little hand notification shows up in my menu bar but when I actually do the hand motions, nothing happens.

    Sorry pal..but being a GN2 owner all that stuff they advertise JUST DOES NOT WORK..Its a hoax and a load of half baked so called features that make the phone a lagfest and sluggish to boot. Better learn next time to get a phone that has a greater focus on software improvements instead of gimmicks.

    Hi! I just got my Samsung S4 today and I have been looking forward to using air gestures. But even if I enabled the air gestures app in the setting and in the sub menu it still won't work. I read online that there should be a light that turns on but the light hasn't turned on even though it said that it has been enabled. Can anyone guide me through this whole process?or tell what I'm doing wrong. I tried using the 'Help app' and when they do the tutorials it works but other than that, it doesn't work on its own.

    Sorry for all of your issues. The sensor on the first phone I received was not working therefore none of associated functions did either. So within 24 hrs of receiving the phone I called Verizon tech support and they had me go through a bunch of things including a factory reset...the sensor still didn't work. So they classified the phone as DOA and I was able to go to the Verizon store and trade the broken phone for a brand new unit not a refurbished one. The sensor and all associated functions are now working as advertised and I'm loving this phone!

    Under Air View in Settings, make sure Information Preview is on. I thought mine was not working either but once I turned it on I was good.

    Hope that helps. ...
