Your phone is detecting your finger when it is at 0.25" distance from your screen and will show you the preview of the selected content. You can preview messages, emails, movies or videos. Also, you can use it to quickly access one of your contacts. If you want to turn the feature on, you will have to access Menu, Settings, My device and then Air view. You will tap the slider button and turn it from Off to On. If you want to preview content from your gallery, you will simply have to open it and put your finger near the screen without touching it. The image will be shown larger and you will be able to see small details of it. You will do the same for viewing the calendar or messages. When you watch a video, you can put your finger near the screen to see a preview of the scene chosen on the timeline of the video.
