A really annoying thing I have lived with for several generations of Samsung phones is the lack of text notifications while the screen is on. I'll get a ding when the screen if off. But I don't stare at my phone for a minute, waiting for either a new text to arrive or my screen to go black. I keep watching my youtube video, or checking email or talking to someone. If my text gets a response while my attention is off the phone I will not notice and check back several minutes (or hours) later and find that the reply.
Any way to fix this?
I have a setting in the phone app, Call alerts and ring tones, Notify During Calls. Alarms and notifications play the tones we set up for them. Also adds the notification to the pull down panel and blinks the led.
With Netflix, HBO and other streaming software edge screen sends pop-up notification and edge lighting they're pretty hard to miss. Gmail, messenges ect are active for that. There's always a possibility that a streaming app might block a notification but I haven't noticed one yet.
