Recently changed from S4 to S7 and I'm wondering what the purpose of this screen is, and if it's possible to bypass/remove it.
Screen is black. Press power button or home button. Screen comes on with wallpaper and says, "Swipe screen to unlock". Swipe across the screen. THEN, finally, we're at the password entry screen.
On the S4 I used to have, waking the phone resulted in the password entry screen directly.
What's the point of this additional screen? Can it be disabled, WHILE continuing to use a password?
Thanks for any help. Let me know what other info you need, if any.
