I have an S8 Active and I recently used Smart Switch to transfer some data over from an S8. However, now my lock screen is a little different and I preferred the way it was before. Now when I am on the Always On screen and I double-click on the home button it takes me to a preview screen of my notifications. When I try to expand on one of these notifications it then opens the pulldown screen as if my phone were unlocked and I pulled from the top. Is there a way to get rid of this intermediate page? I would just like it to go from the Always On screen to the Pulldown screen when I want more info about a notification. I am thinking there is some setting or possibly a theme that has been applied. Thanks in advance!
Thanks for the quick reply, Andrew! I was worried that I would be unable to successfully explain my dilemma without pictures. I have included two screenshots below to assist. For clarity, when I describe this scenario I will talk about three "pages." The first page is the Always On Display, of which I was unable to capture a screenshot. Also, it should be noted that my unlock method is swipe.
You're right that it is not a physical button but the home icon is still present on the AOD. When I double-tap that it opens a preview screen(Second Page) of my notifications(Same result is achieved by pressing the power button while on AOD). However, it doesn't show everything I would like and it also doesn't really let me interact with the notifications. When I try to interact with them it brings up a new view(Third page), which is the same as thepulldown if the phone were unlocked.
Before the update I do not believe this second page would pop up. I would like to eliminate this page, if possible, or modify it somehow. Do you know if either of these are possible? Please let me know if you have further questions.
