The new Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge come with an always-on display. Would you like to know how to turn it off? But why turn off the always-on display on your Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge.

If you have no idea what is always-on display in the latest phones, here is the video that demonstrates what exactly it is

As you can see, the always-on display shows you the current time and date, the calendar, the most recent call log and some other updates that you would like to see without picking up your phone – something like the widgets that you can add to your home screens in the usual manner.

Although not much battery is used for the always-on display on Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, some people might find the display nagging or distracting. They would like to turn the always-on feature off.

There are two ways you can turn off the always-on display on your Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge:

Method 1: Simply pull down the notification bar at the top of your phone and then pull it down again; you know, this way you can access all those quick-access icons you can use to change the settings without having to go to the Settings option.

Once you are there, there is an “always-on” icon over there that you can toggle between turn-off and turn-on. You can use this icon to turn off the always-on display on your Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge.

Method 2: The second method isn’t necessary but since there is a second method, then why not be aware of it? Go to Settings > Display and from there you can turn off the always-on display setting.

So there you have it, whether you want to turn off the always-on settings on your Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge or not, at least now you know how to do it.
