Other phones I've seen turn on the Do Not Disturb feature when you flip them over.  I can't seem to get that to work on my A15.  Is the only way to active Do Not Disturb is to hit the pull down button?

Thank you.  I found an app that does it.

@userKtpWweZmYa You can mute calls and alarms by putting your phone face down or covering it with your hand. You can enable it in phone settings -> Advanced features -> Motions and gestures -> Mute with gestures

It essentially does the same thing as DND.

I have been using both features for quite some time. Love the customization options on Samsung's devices. Thanks for sharing!!

I actually have that feature activated, but the only time I put my phone face down is when I go to sleep, in which case bedtime mode/DND is on anyway.

@realaud Thanks!!  What option do you use to flip it over for Do Not Disturb?  All I could find is a flip over for ignoring a call.  Have a great day.

I don't think it actually turns on do not disturb, just mutes the calls. Like I said, the only time I actually turn my phone over is when I'm sleeping (a holdover from when I used AOD) and the phone is already in sleep mode/DND.

It's not that inconvenient to turn on DND manually or you can create a routine for turning on DND automatically when certain conditions are met. Unfortunately, turning the phone over is not one of the options, although it should be.

Think I like the DND during the sleeping hours the best.  Half the time I forget to set DND anyway.
