    Hi, since downloading lastest version of 5.0 lollipop on S5 I keep getting large banner style notifications appearing on my home screen. I think they're called, floating notifications?? When I go into application manager it only gives me the option to turn them off completely. Ideally I'd like to return to the original app notifications version. Also, there's no sound when I receive a text message... at all!!!

    Ready to pull my hair out grrr......
    Please help... all suggestions welcome

    Welcome to Android Central! Unfortunately, with Lollipop, you can't selectively turn off the banners and only get the little notification icons. This is a common complaint about Lollipop in general, and hopefully Google is listening and will address it in some future update.

    Thanks B. Diddy Yea hopefully they get it sorted asap *fingers crossed* But also, would you know why I'm not getting a message tone?? Ringing tone, alarm tone everything else is working perfect but for some reason im not getting a tone when a new message arrives :/

    Do you never get message notifications, or is it only when you're in the Messaging app, with that conversation open?

    I get notifications okay (the banner ones lol) but no sound at all for messages. I left my phone beside me in yesterday and only for me checking, an hour later, I would never have known I had any messages at all. The ring tone, viber message tone, Facebook tone every other tone alert work except for the message one :/ All very confusing.

    Open the Messaging app, tap Menu>Settings, and test out some random notification tones--do they play samples for you?

    Yea that was one of the first things I did, I've tried changing the tone multiple times and still nothing. Lol, it's ridiculously.... I have honestly tried all the obvious things and nothing at all will work :/
