How to disable Always On display on Samsung Galaxy S7

The Always On shows battery-friendly notifications without actually unlocking the phone. Disabling Always On display is a wise option for those who find it annoying or just want to save a small percentage of the battery.


Although it doesn’t affect the battery too much, but for some people, it may not be worth as it doesn’t show what kind of notifications they are getting. With Moto Display, you can interact with the notifications and see a small glance of the message. Furthermore, it still takes a small amount of the battery percentage which may be a bit of a concern to them.
