Smart Stay feature makes the phone stay awake when you are awake and falls asleep when you do. The phone uses the front facing camera to sense your eye and make the display ON as long as you are looking at it. This is really helpful feature especially when you are reading a large email or while reading eBooks.

Imagine you got an urgent text message or phone call while the phone is on silent mode and you pick up the phone in a hurry to go somewhere. In normal case, you wont see the alerts on the phone unless you press any button. With Smart Alert feature, which uses the motion sensing feature, alerts you at the very moment you take the phone even though you didn’t pressed any button. So, you will never miss a missed call or text message again.

When Samsung Galaxy S2 released with 4.3”inch display people called it large and eventually they become used to the display and started thinking about having a bigger one. At that time, Samsung released Galaxy Note with 5.3”inch display which I personally cant get used to ‘cos I am a college student and I dont want to stick such a large device into my pocket. Now, Samsung accepted the call of the people for having a bigger display than Galaxy S2 and smaller display than Galaxy Note.
