    It looks like feature on the S4 that appears when you wave your hand over the screen. It can be turned off.

    There are multiple air gestures. The screenshot you showed is one called air glance. If the phone's on a flat surface on its back (and asleep... aka screen off), if you wave your hand within 3 inches of the screen at the top, you'll get your notification icons, current time and any missed calls/texts. There's actually other air gestures: has a Samsung rep showing them off at a trade show.

    To take a screenshot by gesture your hand needs to make contact with the screen not just hover over it. I took like 20min trying to figure it out lol

    AS for that screen, it's the quickpreview screen. Just swipe your hand over the gesture sensor and it'll show up.
