    This only happens when my phone is locked but there is an icon that irregularly appears at the top of my screen where notifications are. I included a screenshot. Does anyone know what this is?

    Smart Stay. If the proximity sensor registers your eye contact the screen won't time out.

    The eye simply is looking for yours. It this shows for a few more seconds it'll think you looked away and time out the screen.
