    I've been reading ways to save battery and one of them was to turn off that annoying "popping colors" when I unlock my screen. Says to go to setting>lock screen>unlock effect...

    Problem is that unlock effect is not there! I'm on AT&T and my friend is on Sprint and she has it in her settings. Is it an AT&T thing or a glitch on my phone? Anyone else come across this?

    That's because you have it set unlock with a pattern. The pattern is the effect.

    That could be it. I know I have mine set to swipe to unlock.

    WOW, what a DUMMY I am!! Funny part is that I only had switched from swipe to pattern a few minutes before looking for unlock effect. I'm my own worst enemy LOL

    Thanks!!

    So this seems to apply also if you have a pin unlock, but in order to get to the number pad you still have to swipe - but once pin unlock is selected, you cannot change the swipe effect anymore? Any workaround?

    So this is another one of those funky ones. If you use a PIN unlock, your phone still does a Swipe effect when you unlock your phone after less than 10 minutes. So how do you set the Swipe animation effect with a PIN unlock as your primary unlock? You can't!

    • Turn OFF the PIN unlock to go back to Swipe unlock.
    • Set the animation effect for Swipe.
    • Turn the PIN unlock back ON.

    This is the only way I found to set the animation effect for Swipe.

    Heaven help you if your work requires you to have a PIN unlock!! You'd have to turn off the PIN unlock, wait an hour for the phone to wipe all your e-mail, set the Swipe animation, then turn PIN back on, and go back to the IT guy at work to get your phone added to the system again.

    Samsung needs to provide us a way to set the animation for ALL unlock styles.

    If you have a lock screen that is animated, you won't be able to use the effect. Use a regular wallpaper that is stable and you should be able to use the lock screen effect. (made that mistake and just realized >.<) I hope I made sense xD

    Me too I have android 6.0.1 it isn't working for me but maybe it works if
    1-set your lock type to pattern lock
    2-when you set to pattern . Restart your device
    3-now go to unlock options
    4-set it back to swipe effect
    NOTE: USE original background to have more chance of success in that (it has 60% chance to work) after all . I didn't try . But if it works . Please reply to me that if it works or not and thanks

    I've tried absolutely everything I can think of and my Samsung galazy s6 edge just doesn't seem to have the effect anymore. I updated it yesterday and now it's gone! I want it back.
