 What is Smart Stay Feature in Galaxy S3?

Smart stay in Galaxy S3 is the feature where it gets automatically detected that the user is looking at the display. Thus display time out is kept off at that time. This is a distinct and the most useful feature for the users who prefer reading eBooks, files and texts on the phone. And to my surprise, Galaxy S3 automatically turns off the display when you are not looking at it. Isn’t this amazing? You must be thinking that how does the phone understand that you are looking at the display or screen. Well, S3 tracks your eye balls and based on that it keeps the display turned on or turns it off. Thus you don’t need to put in any extra effort to touch the home screen every now and then to keep the display on. All this happens automatically.

I asked the doubt to the Samsung guys that what if, while reading my eyes succumb and I fall asleep. They smiled and said, Galaxy S3 is designed for humans and so when you fall asleep, the phone also sleeps thus saving your battery.

There might be more uses of this S3 Smart Stay feature. But that will be as and when people use it and invent it. But according to me, Smart Stay feature is a nature inspired solution which proves that S3 is a genius in reality. The eye tracking smart stay is something that proves that why Samsung is the king and what makes it distinct than the rest.
