    Hi
    I just rooted my phone today and Im thinking about old ideas that came from my brain before rooted.
    And I just remember an idea,
    < 'wake up phone when looking at a phone while screen off' >

    Like some other phones(LG, IPhone, etc.), when a person look at a phone(screen off), the phone screen just turned on! (Not UNLOCKING, just WAKING) And I wanted to know that is it possible on any android(mine is A520S). Flashable zip, apk....

    Anyone ideas?

    I'd like this to work with my wife when I'm ready for sex, unfortunately I'm still waiting for this to happen.
    I've never seen a phone wake just by looking at it....

    I have Smart Lock but haven't really played with its features.

    The closest my phone comes to the OP's wish is that it wakes up when my hand--or one of my cats--comes near it.

    Maybe the camera would have to be on all the time to work. Battery hog?

    I'm an owner of Samsung Galaxy S8, but I hadn't spotted this feature.
