Use Smart screen options to have your phone automatically adjust screen timeout, rotation
when it detects you are looking at the screen, and control scrolling and playback based whether
you are facing the screen.
Smart screen options use the front camera to detect when you are facing the screen. Some
factors that may affect the ability of the front camera to detect your face are:
When the phone is not docked or held upright, for example when placed on a table.
When the front camera cannot detect your face and eyes.
When the front camera is being used for the current application.
When the source of light is behind you, or when using the phone in the dark.
