    I have had my Samsung Galaxy s5 for about a year and a half. Yesterday out of the blue my screen started turning on with every new e mail that is delivered. This has never happened before. I have checked all possible settings. I even installed the App, Screen notifications, to stop the screen from waking on notifications. The app doesn't stop it either. it happens every time, when the phone is locked, and unlocked. my model number is SM G900V Android version 6.0.1
    Please help. Thank you!

    So you've looked in lock screen notifications permissions? Settings in email client (sometimes app updates can rearrange your settings /preferences)?

    Thanks Tim, yes I have. The only thing that has changed, was a security update. I'm on Verizon. I have been trying to figure out how to uninstall the update hoping it will put my phone back to how it was... ugh. so frustrated. The constant annoyance of the screen turning on, and the battery drain is ridiculous.
    Thanks again,
    Donna
