    Hi forgive my ignorance but does anyone know what the flashing eye symbol is for in the notification bar in jellybean 4.1.2 ?
    I was making a call when I had to look something up on my phone and noticed an eye looking back at me! It kept blinking at me! Strange!!!!!!!

    Blinking eye :confused:

    See pages 23 and 24 of the User Manual (Jelly Bean), English (Europe).

    Might be GPS.

    Its definitely not gps and its not listed on the pages you pointed me to! I have had a thought tho! Could it be something to do with smart stay!? The thing that is supposed to keep the screen on while looking at it!? Not sure will do some digging around. I tried to screen capture it but im not quick enough go catch the eye blinking!

    I've noticed this icon on my Jellybean S2 recently too. A Google of the issue turned this up. I thought it was Sauron or the NSA or something! Lol.
