      Were you able to come right with this? I’m having the same problem and can’t figure it out.

    I just got a new software update pushed to my S3, and now there is a notification icon I’ve never seen. Looks like a white square with 2 lines in it, sort of a lightnig strike pattern. Any ideas? I don’t get any informaiton when I drop down the notification list.

    what is the meaning of the icon looks like an eye???

    • Heather says:

      The means you’ve enabled smart stay. The front camera is checking to see if you’re looking at the screen. If the camera detects your face, it won’t go to sleep.
