    New to S4 - Help with Icon meaning please :)

    Hi - I have recently made the switch from iPhone to S4 and I will never look back. So much more advanced and makes the iPhone look dated and basic. The reason for my post is that I don't understand what a couple of the icons mean at the top of the screen. The first icon looks like an eye with 3 'lashes' at the top if it. The second is like the wifi bar but has a large capital N on it. Does anyone know what these are for please as it's baffling me!

    Hi

    The eye is smart scroll - when you look at a web page the software tracks your face tilting(I think) and scrolls the page for you so you don't have to use your finger.
    Go into Settings/My device/smart screen for more info


    The N means you have Near Field Communication switched on - supposedly (I can't get mine to work properly) this allows you to seamlesslessly transfer files and other content to another NFC enabled device by touching them back to back.

    If you go into settings/connections, click on nfc this will give you a bit of info

    To turn either off just pull down the notification bar at the top of the screen and scroll to the right at the top where all your widgets are

    Fantastic and thanks so much for your reply In the smart screen settings the eye enable because I had Smart Stay set up (where the screen stays on for as long as you look at it). And thank for the Near field info although that all sounds far too complicated for me!

    Thanks again

    Sorry - one more question. I don't suppose anyone knows how to un-sync my facebook photos with the album? Lots of old pics are coming up!

    Settings, accounts, sync apps with Facebook, sync interval settings and uncheck items as required :thumbup:
