    Yesterday, I did the Verizon update. Then I noticed a new icon at the top of my homescreen that I've never seen before.
    Anyone know what it is? I attached a picture with a red arrow pointing to the new icon.

    Thanks, Casey

    It's part of the eye tracking features of the note 2. That's just showing you it's enabled.

    Thanks for your reply. You mean eye tracking similar (or same) as the feature on the new Samsung S4 ?

    Oh cool, thanks. I also now notice the "Smart rotation" function, which I don't know if this is also part of the update. I just now checked the box to activate Smart rotation, let's see if I like it or not.

    The "eye" has always been used. Before 4.1.2 it just popped up just before screen time out to see if you are looking at it. Now it's permanent and very annoying.

    Yeah, I agree. I rather not have this icon either, especially if it's just always there on top of the screen.

    That's weird. I don't see it unless I have smart stay selected!

    Yes, you are correct. What I meant was that I prefer to not see the icon even if I have the boxes checked to activate.

    It's from Samsung and is not specific to the Verizon version. A search for "Smart Stay" in the general Samsung Galaxy Note 2 forum indicates other carrier versions of the Note 2 have the persistent eye icon (if Smart Rotation or Stay are enabled) after getting the 4.1.2 update.

    It's the GPS/location services indicator. For more see page 33 of the user manual here: http://cache.vzw.com/multimedia/mim/...te2_manual.pdf

    Location services. If you have the " )))" that indicates that you have enabled one or more options (gps, Verizon, and or Google)
