    One of the options in the "Display" menu is "smart stay"
    .
    "Smart stay" will allow the screen to detect your face. Once your face is detected, as long as the screen is facing you, your phone will not close. This setting will work even if your phone is on the lock screen. Tap on "smart stay" one time.

    A set of instructions will appear on the screen, letting you know that the front facing camera detects your face when you are looking at your phone
    .
    "Smart stay" works best when it is held steady, in good lighting, and when the camera is not being used by another application. To turn this feature on, tap the switch in the top right hand corner one time.
