One smartphone feature that’s been growing in popularity as of late is the Always On Display. Major phone manufacturers such as Samsung, LG, and Motorola have been including these display options on their phones for the past few years, and it’s no surprise that Samsung included it on the new Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus.
For those unfamiliar, Always On Display lets you check the time, date, battery percentage, and notifications, even when the phone isn’t in use. As you can see in the image attached above, most of the screen is completely black, aside from the clock and notifications on the screen. It’s a subtle way to get the information you need as quickly as possible, without the need to turn on your phone’s screen.
Plus, Samsung made the Always On Display super customizable. If you want to learn more about the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus’ Always On Display, check out the full tutorial below:
