    Hello

    I recently changed from an iPhone 6 plus to Nexus 6. One of the things I liked from the iPhone is when you ge a notification whilst you are browsing etc it will show a quick preview of it at the top of the phone then slide away. It appears the nexus just shows the icon in the top bar so you have to physically look who the message text etc is from by sliding the bar down. Not a major annoyance but is there any way you can change the type of notification you receive when the screen is unlocked?

    Not sure about this but try Settings -> Sound & notification -> Interruptions -> When calls and notifications arrive -> Always interrupt.

    I prefer to have my notifications off but you can switch them on

    Settings>sound & notification>notification and select from there

    I think it may be application specific.

    Android messenger behaves as your iphone. While browsing the web, it gives a preview on top for a few seconds before going away.

    Google Hangouts also does this for the incoming SMS texts I just tested.

    Gmail only provides the notification icon on the top bar and you must swipe down to see the full notification.

    I never noticed the differences before until you mentioned it!

    That's odd because by default it should notify you at the top.

    Thanks for the replies. It seems it's just gmail that doesn't give the full notification. Hangouts works fine.
