Hi, I just Pré ordered my S9 and I’m swapping from iPhone. I’ve seen loads of posts about people not getting lock screen notifications and all the fixes seem to involve the always on display setting being on. Is there a way you can get notifications on your lock screen without it and have the screen to wake for a short time like it does on iOS or do you have to use the aod feauture
Solved! Go to Solution.
My S9 was having the same issues. The only app working on the lock screen is the messages app that came with the phone. I called Samsung customer service and, after working with me several minutes over the phone, they could not get a solution either. They even remoted into my phone to fix it directly. I was finally told that it is a bug with the system and could possibly be fixed in the next update. They could not tell me when that update would occur.
Not sure if this helps but I wanted to see my notifications on my lock screen instead of unlocking my S9+.
Lock screen and security >Other security settings > Notification access > Notification (TURN ON)
Hope this helps
I have the same issue.
For example, when a notification came to Iphone the screen turn on and let see the message, but this doesn´t happen in the S9.
Do we need to have always on th "Always on" function???
Yes. I have the same config but the problem is that the screen does not turn on when the notification arrives.
I just downloaded the app Glimpse Notification and seems to work fine.
Is a shame that Samsung needs an app to do this simple task.
Have also downloaded Glimpse Notification, but agree it's pretty ridiculous that 'out of the box' the Galaxy S9 doesn't actually notify me when I get a notification....
I was taking a walk and I found this post. Something similar was asked in "our Comunity" and I think the following can help you (I hope so).
Menu - Settings - Accessibility - Dexterity and interaction - Easy start
Activate this option. With the phone lying down and screen up, run your hand over the proximity sensor￼
No need to touch it.
The lock screen will light up and you can see notifications at a glance.
Make sure you have activated showing notifications on the lock screen.
Menu - Settings - Lock screen and security - Notifications (activated)
Menu - Settings - Lock screen and security - Notifications (click on the text, not on the switch) - Hide content (disabled) + Notification icons only (disabled)
Hope this can help you.
