Go back to those that claim such and ask for a demo.

To keep the screen active while you are looking at it, the Smart Stay feature needs to be turned on:

Settings > Display > Smart Stay (check the box)

I haven't figured out how to get the camera app to open when the phone is turned horizontal yet.
