    I didn't notice an increased use of the battery for using the camera to see if I was looking at the phone. It doesn't work as well when the environment is darker, which is why there's a button to take care of that (night mode). My only issue is that said night mode turns off by itself, otherwise it is perfect.

    This is the best app I've found the keep screen open without delay. the others I've tried don't recognize your face as well as this app does

    I only have one problem with this app! On my Samsung Galaxy, the touch key lights are always on because of SmartStay+! Very annoying when you're trying to watch a video at night, and you have bright touch keys in your face. I would love if you could fix this, it would make this app perfect :)
