    Since having my phone for over a week now, not once have I been able to get the Air Gesture feature to work. It is showing as switched on, though there is no notification icon showing for it. I've tried a few that are shown on the manual and in good light, but nothing's happening. Have I missed anything?

    If you just want to see it in action just for the cool factor, try this...

    Open the apps drawer and then tap and hold on an app. With your other hand, wave your hand over the phone and watch the home screens rotate. Make sure your hand is pretty visible to the front facing camera because that's what it uses to track the motion.

    My air gesture works fine, i mostly use it to flick between photos.

    But my eye recognition doesnt seem to work at all, it never pauses videos when im watching and it never scrolls on web pages. Everything is turned on and it used to work but it just stopped suddenly.

    In settings you have to select by tilting head.

    Funny, I just got Verizon S4 (fore review) and I can do everything else except for flicking between the photos or pause the video when turning my head away. I don't think it's limitation of VZW, but so far most of the YT demos I have seen were with ATT S4s :thinking:
