Do you know where to find these features? If not pop up play should be there when your watching a video on the stock video player, it should be an icon that looks like a square, tap it.
Smart stay you should be able to find it under settings - Display - features and then click the check box to enable.

The Smart Stay option doesn't appear in the Display features menu.

It does on the S3 which is the closest device I have right now to the S2x, if it's not there then it's in the quick toggle section in your notification bar like on the Note 2 and Galaxy S4. Those are the only devices I have for comparison and I don't see them implementing another way to access it.

Then it must not have that feature I'm guessing. Do you have the S2x rikkster?

Odd, I just watched a vid where the T-Mobile variant has Smart Stay. Not the end of the world, but interesting that the U.S. variant gets the feature and we don't. Yes, I have the S2x.

While I'm not 100% sure of this, I gotta assume Samsung held some of the more impressive features for the S III/S IV

That's what I'm thinking, man I wish I had every phone in Koodo lineup to know exactly what features got implemented in updates. I read reports that the Galaxy S2 supposedly was getting it but the Galaxy S2x not sure. I hate models like the Galaxy S2x that are slightly different and get slightly Different features, it's very confusing and I wish company's would stick to making a few devices every year for the entire world with no variants. Too many ppl have a say it how devices are made.

You can always grab an app from the playstore for smart stay like this one. https://play.google.com/store/apps/de...
