The Samsung Galaxy S III, Note II and undoubtedly S IV, all have features and options that are so amazing, that Samsung can’t possibly spend an entire day showing them all to you. While the big ones on the Note II are sure to be Air View, Multi-Window and Share Shot, there are plenty more that even seasoned vets haven’t even really seen or found. We just stumbled across one that we thought was pretty darn cool that we didn’t know about.
The feature is called Quick Glance. It is located in Settings -> Motion -> Quick glance -> Check this box. You simply, and apparently slowly, swipe your hand over the top of your phone while it is sitting flat on a surface. The screen comes on and shows you missed calls, messages, battery life and a few other key elements. How this is any faster or better than just hit your power button real quick is beyond me, but it is still pretty cool. Take quick look at SamMobile trying to make it work.
