I have a Galaxy A8 with the official neon flip cover. It works well when I close it or when I have an sms / call / app notification, except (it seems) with the calendar: the (border of the) cover flashes as a calendar notification starts... and the cover doesn't stop flashing - and thus consumes the battery! The same happens when I set the calendar notification on discrete or so (except if I totally disabled it). Do you have any suggestion? Thanks
Solved! Go to Solution.
Eventually I found an acceptable solution: since even when I disable the Samsung Calendar Notification I get the neon flashing when an event starts, I just removed the authorisation for Samsung Calendar to access the calendar (in apps > calendar > authorisations). I am using the Google Agenda app thus it works! (But with no neon effect when an event starts)
Thank you for sharing that solution, even though it has been so long since you posted the problem. I had the same thing going on my A8 (just got it recently), that thing lighting and continuing to light up and I just couldn't find what was causing it. I just ran into your post, applied the solution, and I HOPE it will nice and dark now I also use Google Agenda, so.. nothing lost there. Also just removed the notifications on all future appointments, never used them anyway. Fingers crossed, and thanks again!
